Burnsall sits on the B6160 about 25 miles north-west of Leeds, England. I should really embed the GPS coordinates in these files where I know them but that’s a project for another day.
Like yesterday’s photo, this was also taken in February 1989 and I thought I shot it on Fujichrome Velvia, hence the lush green tones, but every reference I’ve found says Velvia was introduced in 1990. If it wasn’t Velvia, it was some other Fuji film. In the background is the Parish Church of Saint Wilfrid while in the foreground, the River Wharfe flows beneath a five arched bridge that carries the Dalesway – along distance footpath popular with hikers. The green field in the lower right corner is a cricket pitch with arguably the most scenic views of any cricket pitch in England.
I did find an interesting post on Velvia and color saturation in landscape photography from David Leland Hyde. I have to say I usually prefer my landscapes saturated with enhanced contrast over duller, documentary tones. The saturation adds an element of fantasy to an image and is, perhaps, closer to how I remember the scene – more vibrant color leads to more vivid memories.
