A few days in Yorkshire

This week I visited Yorkshire with a couple of Fuji X series cameras and lenses. I packed the Fuji X-T1 and the X-Pro1 together with the 10-24mm and 50-140mm Fuji lenses.

Our base for the visit was the spa town of Ilkley.  It is a charming town with riverside walks and above the town is the famous Ilkley Moor. The town is the subject of a folk song, often described as the unofficial anthem of Yorkshire, “On Ilkla Moor Baht ‘at”. The song’s words are written in Yorkshire dialect, its title translated as “On Ilkley Moor without a hat.”

We also ventured out into the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, visiting Malham with its imposing cove and limestone pavements. It’s a popular tourist attraction but its still possible to find a bit of peace and quiet. We enjoyed this beautiful part of the country and are already looking forward to visiting again.
