Hole of Horcum Circular Walk VI

We climbed up a steep path from the railway line to the top of Levisham Moor again. We turned left and took a path through the moorland with its native heather (not yet in bloom) until we reached the ruin of Skelton Tower, which we had seen from below earlier in the walk. (see previous post). This is where we stopped for our picnic lunch. From our high POV there are some stunning views (See next post and also the WS of the previous post)
Skelton Tower sits on the edge of the cliff overlooking the North Yorkshire Moors Railway line. It looks like the ruin of a medieval castle keep, but it was built in 1850 by the Rev. Robert Skelton, the vicar of Levisham. Supposedly he wrote his sermons there, but some say he escaped there for a quiet drink!
As you can see the sunny day was now a cloudy one, but I managed to take this shot while the sun was out. I tried shots from different viewpoints, so there are two more in the WS, where I have been experimenting with exposure both in camera and RAW conversion. I would appreciate your comments and advice on those too if possible.

See the previous shots of the walk in the travelogue.
