Brimham Rocks Through The Lens
Sunset from Brimham by Nigel L Baker, Brimham Photographic Society
A photography exhibition depicting the gems of Brimham Rocks, the 320 million-year-old rock formations near Pateley Bridge in North Yorkshire, will be opened to the public on Friday 18 August.

The exhibition is launched as part of Nidd Art Trail 2017 and is open to visitors 11am-5pm daily until the end of September.

During the exhibition, inspired visitors can submit their own photographs to a 'My Brimham' competition.

The best 50, as chosen by the Brimham Photographic Society, will go on show in October at the Brimham Rocks Visitor Centre.

The 400 acre Brimham site, run by the National Trust, attracts around a quarter of a million visitors each year to view the rocks - many around 12 metres high.

Around 60 of the rocks have names.

With a little imagination, visitors can spot the Dancing Bear, Eagle, the Idol and Druid's Writing Desk, as well as experience the amazing Rocking Stones - massive stone structures that move when pushed.

Jaanika Reinvald, visitor experience assistant, says:

"Throughout the seasons, Brimham Rocks offers amazing inspiration to photographers, even when the weather is at its coldest and mistiest.

"This year, the photographers of the Brimham Photographic Society have put together some images of both well-known, iconic parts of the site and also some of the lesser known, or hidden gems of Brimham.

"Many of these are not immediately obvious but can easily be found by taking a short walk off the well-worn paths, down into the woods or behind the rocks."
