Malham Cove

On the west side of the 80 metre (260 foot) high cliff face of Malham Cove are about 400 irregular stone steps, which form part of the Pennine Way, and lead to an uneven limestone pavement at the top. This photo is the view from the top of Malham Cove.

I had only recently recovered from Vertigo associated with my condition of Meniere's disease and so climbing these steps and walking out onto the limestone pavement was quite a challenge, but I was determined to get my picture. I feel my determination has paid off, although it is a shame that the late afternoon sun wasn't more interesting. I would love to photograph this during the 'golden hour'.
