Summer Evening at Haworth, Brontë Country


"The evening sun was sinking down
On low green hills and clustered trees
It was a scene as fair and lone
As ever felt the soothing breeze"

Brontë Inspired Still Life: Jane Eyre Notes & Lilac


"Spring drew on....and greenness grew over those brown beds,
which, freshening daily, suggested the thought 
that hope traversed them at night and
left each morning brighter traces of her steps." 

~ Charlotte Brontë, "Jane Eyre" ~

Vlog: A Spring Walk In Otley Chevin Forest Park


I am so lucky and grateful to live not far from the town of Otley and the wonderful forest park high up above it called Chevin. It is easily the most beautiful woodland area I have been to; full of character, history, lots of most breathtaking distant views and interesting features such as The White House, Dibbs Cottages, dry stone wall maze, Vacca Wall, to mention just a few. It is a perfect place for a refreshing stroll, reflection and a spot of connection with nature. 
It was very cold on this early May morning, but the light was beautiful and the air crisp and scented with spring growth.

The White House, Otley Chevin Forest Park, May 2021


One of my favourite subjects to photograph are cottages, farmhouses, old homes of any kind etc. There are some in the vicinity of where I live that always inspire me and make me hope for yet another good shot, like The White House perched high up on the hill in the middle of the beautiful Otley Chevin Forest Park.
