Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Of all the photographs that I took at Knaresborough, this has to be amongst my favourites.

Please look at Mother and Son Share a Stunning Scene to see the photograph much larger and clearer. It is well worth the effort.

The photograph was taken from the grounds of the castle, so you will be able to see what a very dominant position the castle occupies.

There are various pathways from the castle, with benches at different points, down to the River Nidd. From the benches you get this amazing, uninterrupted view of the viaduct.

This castellated viaduct across the River Nidd was influenced by the Medieval character of the town. It was built in 1851 by Thomas Grainger for the Leeds & Thirsk Railway.

I would like to alert you to two other photographs, this the very first photograph posted by Gert and this a photograph by Mariusz. You will be able to see what an attractive site this is and draws photographers from all over!

I was very lucky to find a mother and son occupying one of the benches when I prepared to take a photograph, especially when the mother had such colourful hair!

I hope you like the scene too.
I will post further views later.

Have a great day, Bev :-)
