Photographer's Note

I have been experimented with some balck and white recently and this is a shot of the gritstone outcrop called the Bridestones, high the the West Yorkshire moors near to Todmorden.

I have a book that lists all of the Neolithic sites in Britain. Stone circles, burial mounds and standing stones. Apparently Bridestones and many otehr natural outcrops attracted the people from Neolithic times who worshipped mother nature and wild natural places. Often these outcrops are on top of wild places and serve as natural landmarks and are excellent places to view the surrounding area. I can see why these places have attracted people for thousands of years, and in fact they still do.

Apart from the mobile phone mast in the background! I thought that this shot in black and white emphasised the wildness and ancient quality of this place. I hope you agree.
