There is finally a bit of Spring colour about. The trees are so late budding but this gave me an opportunity to take this view of Knaresborough castle without it being too much hidden by the trees.
Last week I posted the blog “Photography in Auto Mode – Tips for Improving Photos” which is the start of a new blog series. In that blog post I talked about how much you can improve a photo by taking it from lower down, such as from waist level. For this flower bed I’ve gone even lower. My foot has recovered enough from surgery to allow me to crouch sometimes, so that’s good!
Knaresborough for Visitors
Knaresborough is a charming North Yorkshire town with very ancient history, wonderful views down into the gorge, steep paths and quaint alleys to explore and some good tea shops. Not to be missed if you’re ever nearby! It’s also famous for the bed race. Teams of runners push a hospital bed (with someone on it) on a course around the town streets, against the clock. It’s immensely competitive and people come from all over the world to see it or take part.
The Knaresborough bed race takes place on the second Saturday in June. If you want to plan a visit you can use this discount code for £25 off accommodation with AirBnb or find more options for family travel on my Shop page.
