The western side of the county has had one of its worst summers in living memory so when the sun shone briefly yesterday (Sunday) afternoon there was no way I would be staying home doing my usual chores. As the bulk of tourists were heading home I decided to make the most of some lovely early evening light by heading up over lonely Kingsdale and into Dentdale. A few locals were preparing for the Bank Holiday Monday show in Dent and there were a handful holidaymakers strolling the town’s pretty cobbled streets, trying to work out what that unusual warm yellow thing was up in the sky. After a short walk it was a beautiful drive home as the light faded; Whernside and Ingleborough were silhouetted against the darkening skies and Penyghent lapped up the finals rays of sun. Unfortunately, the ironing still had to be done.
