Light Trap: Embsay Crags

February 9, 2012

Inspiration can be a hard thing to find, especially over the cold months when grey skies, miserable weather and dark evenings conspire to erode your will to ride. To help with that, we’ve got regular Singletrack contributor and snapper Benji Haworth to look back over his archive of photos, select one of his favourites and tell us the story behind the shot.

Every month he’ll bring you a high resolution image with the story behind it, with a downloadable wallpaper (including iPad sized version) to cheer up your computer screen..

Matt at Embsay Crags

Believe it or not this is a bridleway according to the map.

“Taken on Embsay Crags in the Yorkshire Dales. Believe it or not this is a bridleway according to the map. It was hair-raising enough getting a capable 160mm bouncy bike and a plucky rider (Matt) down it. I can’t imagine a horse having as much luck. Or as much fun. Taken on one of those spring days that feel much more like summer than summer does. It was nice and bright, which always makes photography that little bit more straightforward.”
