I was trying to get some autumn leaf colour shots the other day when I was rudely interrupted by the weather and the need to head to London. Today I’m back and the conditions are superb. Here’s my current location, looking down over Todmorden in West Yorkshire. The climb’s a bit of a bugger when you’ve a camera bag on your back, but it’s well worth it!


I can’t upload any camera pictures right now, but I have to say, the light’s been gorgeous! The only problem is that the light doesn’t last long this time of years and the long shadows soon creep in

I’m back in Todmorden now as (foolishly) I took water with me but no food – so I was rather peckish by mid-afternoon and the days exertions. West Yorkshire ain’t flat!

Tod’ has a lovely little market, both indoor and outdoor, it nestles in the shadow of the railway viaduct and I keep meaning to come here one morning to get shots juxtaposing the two. The outdoor market sells all manner of stuff, especially bric a brac, whilst the indoor one has some good butchers selling locally sourced meat. There’s also a very popular coffee stall. Here’s a couple of shots.

Whilst I’m waiting for my train home I’ve popped into the Queens Hotel which is across the road from the station for a swift pint before heading home. They have two local ales on. One of which commemorates the Great War.


I’m back at home in front of the computer screen, so here’s a couple of sample of the pictures I’ve been after today.
