Header Challenge - Recent Snap Shots by Craver.

Last weekend Julie and I went up North to a little Village called Ireby, once a year Ireby comes ALIVE for their Folk Festival, 2 days of non stop music in 3 places in the village + acts in the square and streets.  Many camper vans,and tents pitch in 2 fields, while others, like us stayed in a B&B. Av attended around 500 folk - The age group  are between 3-4 yrs with their parents  to OAPs.
Topping the bill were Seth Lakeman and his band, who had ev1 on their feet. 

A fantastic weekend.


On our way up we stopped off at a town called Knaresborough -a beautiful place also we went to see  Mothers Shipton's Cave, and this is where my Recent Snap Shots are from.


My music with photos are also from Knaresborough and Mother Shiptons Cave

This is the Spring that goes into The Petrifying well

The Petrifying well
Here you see things have been hung up and as the water drips over the items  it petrifies them as time passes.

Now to see the cave where Mother Shipton was born

Your feet and your Nikon do get a workout on your trips! Love the shots of the viaduct and the trail to the cave. And the story is wonderful lore with a woman Henry VIII could not control.

What a wonderful tour !
I just finished mine around the UK, it had been wonderful ! The weather was so nice even Nessie could take a sunbath. It only started to rain the two days in Bath, Stonehenge and London. Now I am busy to sort out all the pictures ! We did about 2000 km in 7 days !! (I posted on my Writer Cramps blog)

This was a fun tour and the pics are all so good! The reflection off the waters reminds me of what I saw this weekend... the young girl (13 yrs) next door was outside scouting with her compact digital camera, and she had some nice shots of the standing water from an earlier rainfall. Perhaps we have another photographer emerging here!
