Almscliffe Crag and Cloud

Crag and Cloud: Almscliffe

Almscliffe Crag, between Otley and Harrogate, is a millstone grit outcrop, popular with climbers. It was created by the slow glacial erosion of the surrounding softer rock. You can clearly see it from afar, in all directions, as a large knobbly hill. From the top, on a clear day, you can see for over forty miles. On the day this photograph was taken, the cloud formations were breathtaking, and I could see Ferrybridge and Drax (near Selby) power stations on the horizon.
