North York Moors National Park

The Story Behind the Image - North York Moors National Park

The North York Moors are known for their magnificent display of heather moorland. The moors are at their best in August when the heather is in full bloom, turning the hillsides into vast swaths of bright purple.

I took this photo on the moors above Danby, where the main National Park visitor centre is located.

I was fortunate enough to be staying at an atmospheric historic hotel in Danby itself so it was a short drive up onto the moors to catch this wonderful view in golden, late evening light.
