Heather in Bloom - North York Moors.

 

In late August, the heather covering the moorland of the North York Moors comes into flower, painting the landscape in a soft reddy purple hue. It brings a different dimension to the hills and vales who's seasonal visual variety ranges from barren winter tones to the bright yellow and reds of summer.  I'd headed out to the Commondale/ Castleton Rigg area, to capture the setting sun as it lit the hills and moors.

A most amazing and lovely landscape (with tip of the hat to its Scottish counterpart).  When is a good time for a tourist to see the heather in bloom?  I know some folks that would plan a trip just to see these colors.
