Cat on Stone - Yorkshire



I was driving along a country lane just north of Leeds not far from the village of Arthington when I saw this cat. As you can see in the picture there is a cat painted on the field entrance stone.

It is beautiful countryside between Leeds and Harrogate and on this day the sun was shining and the birds were singing my roof was off and everything was fine.

Whenever I travel anywhere now I am always on the lookout for subjects to photograph and write about for the Leeds daily photo, so seeing this cat I pulled over and got my camera out.

I am slowly building a portfolio of photographs of the countryside in and around Leeds with the idea that eventually I will have a decent library of stock photographs of this part of Yorkshire.

  3. Is it painted on or carved in stone. I used to do a lot of stone carving and on some rocks you can just hammer lightly and powder the surface and get this kind of painted-on effect. Nice.
