Photographer's Note

This is a view of Roseberry Topping from a POV more recognisable to local people. The distinctive shape is recognisable from many viewpoints around. The unusual shape we see today dates to just before WW1, when mining and the presence of a geological fault, caused the western slope to collapse. Sorry to post another view of it, but I hope you will agree that this image has more to offer, than just this iconic hill in North Yorkshire. The Rowan berries are out and the purple heather is in full bloom. Some of you might object to the central placement in the frame, but I feel the inclusion of the Rowan trees in the composition is some justification.
We had walked round the back of Roseberry and up on to the open moor, from where we went down to Gribdale carpark and then up again through the forest, en route to Captain Cook’s Monument. This is taken from a viewpoint off the forest path.

There was quite a red cast to this, probably due to all the rowan berries and heather so I reduced that in colour balance. One or two people thought the red was over-saturated in my previous post, but I never increase saturation.

There are some complementary shots in the WS.
