My World (20) = Hole of Horcum North Yorkshire UK

My World UK


Comes from the Hole of Horcum -(click to see) North Yorkshire - on the road from Pickering to Whitby.




This is the lay-by to park in - where you can view the Hole of Horcum from.


This photo was shot straight into the sun, as the sun melts the snow, hence the wet road reflecting.
The Edge of Horcum Hole.







Dont go too near the edge - its slippery - and its a l-o-n-g way down.





My World and Skywatch - goes hand in hand.




The Team = Klaus - Sandy - Ivar - Wren - Fishing Guy - Louise.

That is one great place and it must be impressive to see it for real.

The Hole of Horcum... it sounds like a title for a wonderful picture-book story, but I *love* the photos of it as a real place instead! I'd never heard of it, but I enjoyed my visit, imac, thanks!

wonderful place - the snow emphasises the contours - there is a farm at the bottom and a mutual friend had many a tale to tell about the place.

Sounds like place for a childrens book. Very impressive landscape. Your new header is astonishing too.

Those are amazing shots and the way you shot into the sun made it very dramatic. I like the reflective quality on the road.

Mac: What a neat shot of the hole. I came by earlier and could see anything. Blogger must have problems today.

Great photo and looks like a great walk. Nice to see the map at the other end of the link, too.

This could have been a scenic view of Jane Eyre's wandering . So full of loneliness. Suppose you were walking there at night and all by yourself! Very beautiful, Imac! The pictures are great!

Ineresting place! Was this carved out by glaciers or some other geological event? Your vacation looks like you had a fabulus time!

I see some gorge bushes in your photo. These are great because I bet when everything is green you can't really see the gorge for the trees.
