It is the dying days of Summer, and looking out my window at the moors I see them slowly turning purple. In another couple of weeks they will be vibrant, but this day I couldn’t wait to get out there.
So I grabbed the trusty camera and headed out on the moors to photograph them. I didn’t go far, just a couple of miles and I stayed near the edge as I wanted to show the moors in the far distance as well.
These are taken on Ilkley moor, and the moors on the other side of the valley are Beamsley and Denton moors, and if you blow up the last two shots you can see the tops of the distance moors starting to show the purple heather.
