Told in a collection of stunning landscape
photographs, this is the story of the Yorkshire
Dales over the winter. Starting with the first
hints of autumn, running through the long,
cold white winter and concluding with the
first signs of new life in the spring.
show the Dales in all their different moods –
colourful, calm, lonely, tranquil, stormy, icy,
snowy and the optimism of early spring.
This is a chance to see the Dales scenery in
literally a different light. To experience these
scenes you have to be prepared to brave the
cold and to dress up warmly. Far from being
a drab and grey landscape over winter, the
Dales take on a character of their own when
blanketed in snow with bright blue skies to
lighten the scene. The familiar patterns of the
Dales countryside with its drystone walls and
field barns stand out even more clearly against
the white backdrop. Waterfalls are at their
most impressive when in spate with autumnal
rainfall and waters from the spring thaw.
Professional photographer Keith Wood has
produced a collection of 140 inspiring colour
