Photographer's Note

This is the third and final shot in a mini series on Clouds and the three Peaks.

The yorkshire dales three peaks are Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent.

This image is of Ingleborough.
This is the best image I have been able to take of this peak so far, and I have taken quite a few, I am still not happy with this shot, too much cloud (but I wanted to keep the top right blue sky),needs to be a little sharper and the colours could be better.
I am begining to wonder if this peak is camera shy! - I will keep on trying though :)

'Ingleborough has a cap of of millstone grit, followed by alternating layers of shales, limestones and sandstones of the yoredale beds which form the slopes. The great scar limestone forms the main mass of ingleborough, under which is the askrigg block - the uplifted land along the south craven fault. The surface limestone offers one of the best examples of upland limestone pavements in the uk, particularly around southerscales scars to the west.
Ingleborough hill-fort is an iron-age fortification constructed by the British north-western tribe, the Brigantes. It was probably built during the first century AD, when the area was under attack from the romans who were determined to subject the area to their rule.
Around the top of the summit, which is nearly a mile in circumference, the Brigantes built a 3000ft long stone rampart out of millstone grit, which has now collapsed. There were three entrances in the northern, eastern and south-western sides of the wall. Within this enclosure are the remains of the foundations of a number of circular stone huts usually with south facing entrances'.
