Moorlands

The vast open spaces of moorlands can be interpreted in many ways. They can be cold, hostile and lonely and yet also colourful, beautiful and inspiring places.

Although heather moorland can look like a natural wilderness is actually a semi-natural habitat which has been managed by people ever since clearance and grazing started thousands of years ago. These images are an exploration of the moorlands in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
