Photographer's Note

We visited Rievaulx Abbey, subject of my last few posts, in March. I knew it was possible to get good views of the abbey from the hill above. There is a walkway called Rievaulx Terrace above the abbey where several openings have been cut in the trees for the views. Rievaulx Terrace is owned by the National Trust, a similar organisation to English Heritage of which I am a member. It doesn’t open until Easter so I couldn’t visit on the same day as the abbey.

I will tell you more about Rievaulx Terrace sometime in the future as there is a link to Duncombe Park near Helmsley that I want to visit soon so I will put together a series later.

This viewpoint just shows the abbey church. I make no apologies for the central composition. I did try other framings but this one looked the best. I used the full length of the zoom for this. Other views are in the WS here and here
