Photos: The Coldstones Cut, Yorkshire

As mentioned in my previous post, I am fortunate enough to be staying with my grandparents up until February. This have given me the locals scoop on some of the best and most scenic places to visit in Yorkshire. Here we have The Coldstones Cut, a ‘life size’ piece of art by artist Andrew Sabin. The Coldstones Cut is located on the side of a sandstone quarry on top of Greenhow Hill in Nidderdale, Yorkshire. The art built as an interpretation of both the landscape and its industrial history  – mining and quarrying.

This  shot above was taken from inside The Coldstones Cut facing the main entrance. It was a pretty miserable, cloudy day so Black and White looked best for this. I added the yellow back in to give it a touch of colour to an otherwise lifeless scene.

Below we have the road that is near the entrance path to The Coldstones Cut. The weather has just cleared a little and I took this on the back to the car. Its rare to see a long straight road like this in the UK, I’ve only seen about two as straight as this since arriving here so it captured my attention. I snapped off three shots to merge to a HDR and this is the result after processing.
