Brimham Rocks is an incredible place: weathered towers of rock stand in scrubland on the edge of Brimham Moor in the Yorkshire Dales. It’s owned by the National Trust,and is dotted with curiously shaped columns and outcrops of eroded millstone grit. Some of the formations are quite extraordinary, and wouldn’t look out of place in a western or a sci-fi movie. I’d previously shot a panorama here in 2006, and relished the opportunity to capture another group of rocks when I visited the area recently. Time wasn’t on my side and the light was fading fast and a stiff wind was blowing, so I knew it might be tough to get a good shot. On the plus side, the sunset was glorious, and suffused the scene with a rich, other-worldly light.
