On our way back home to North Wales from a long weekend in England's Lake District my wife Liz and I were determined to wring the last ounce of enjoyment from our mini-break.
So instead of just getting on the M6 motorway and blasting homewards we took a diversion eastwards out of Cumbria and into the Yorkshire Dales along the A684, in the direction of Sedbergh.
Driving along, we found a great viewpoint with a layby where we stopped for a bite to eat and for me to take a few photos of the lovely rolling landscape, dotted with farms and sheep.
This view gives a good idea of the scenery on offer, enhanced by the dramatic storm lighting as heavy dark clouds filled the sky over brooding hills with a farm in the foreground still brightly lit by the summer sun.
