Rambling from Ravenstonedale to Orton #4

If you have the energy, we can continue our walk to see the limestone pavement on our way to Orton.

The limestone blocks become more frequent as we approach the pavement area.

Bare branches of one of the few bushes along this stretch. The colour of the moorland contrasts against the farmland below the Fell.

Here the slabs and grykes of the pavement proper begin.

More of the same. Just a few photos but the pavement extends for miles.

The sunshine breaks through for a moment to encourage us to continue to the Beacon and our destination in Orton.

I am a retired local government officer. At that time, I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I have previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My hobby is photography and, until recently, hillwalking in Snowdonia. I have just written my first novel, Persephone and the Photographer, published as a Kindle eBook.

    1. Thank you for your kind comment. Yes, Brian, I agree. Some landscapes are like that – the slate landscape and post-industrial architecture of the Cwmorthin valley in Snowdonia; the moonscape-like landscape of the plateau from Glyder Fach to Glyder Fawr again on Snowdonia; some of the geothermal scenery of New Zealand or Iceland. I think that photography helps us to see beauty in such scenes.
