It was a most beautiful morning in the town of Hawes. This is a typical scene of a Dales town with the hills visible behind the houses in the distance. Can any place be more inviting than this? Well, certainly not for me!
A lovely old stone bridge and houses in the centre of Hawes. I took this on the first day of my visit. It was a cloudy day but the diffused light was suited well for photography around the town.
I was totally smitten by this post office. To me it looked like it could be a perfect setting for one of, say, Beatrix Potter's illustrated storey books. It may look quiet but it was actually quite busy and I had to keep coming back trying to get a good view as there were cars, lorries etc. parked in front of it all the time. Love that red door that complements the post box and the sign.
A western view of the pretty St. Magaret's church taken from an uphill path leading to the village of Gayle. The church and the lovely rural scene look almost like a drawing taken on a late overcast afternoon.
