BUT... - Ilkley, Yorkshire
I’ve wanted to make this image for a few years, but for one reason and another I haven’t managed it. This location has some very profound significance to me. My grandfather once ran a cable from the Cow and Calf pub, just out of shot to the left, to the Cow (the big rock in the middle) for a band to shoot a music video. I use to climb the Calf (the little rock to the right of centre) with my brother when we were children and amazingly we didn’t fall off! And the very last time I tried to make this image I twisted my ankle by falling into a ditch that I thought wasn’t there because it was covered by chest high bracken. Funny when I went up there a few evenings ago, I did the very same thing but this time managed to come away unscathed, or so I thought until the next day. I had to cancel a trip out with a friend to shoot more heather…
Finally for a few years no I have wanted to make something positive out of this place to reset my view of it. I won’t go into too much detail, because it doesn’t seem right, but so far as to say I think I can look at this and see the good times, see the fun and see the beauty this part of the world has to offer.
