This picture was taken a couple of years ago. It was the first time I had set foot on my moors in many, many years. I was working for a logistics company as sales manager, but I helped out driving when they had a rush job.
For some strange reason the boss came in grinning that day. She had… I have no idea how… realised what my home county means to me. “Fancy a trip to Yorkshire?”
Pausing only to bite her hand off at the offer, I grabbed the keys to the van.
Next morning I was away before dawn… loaded the previous evening so I could get the earliest possible start. They didn;t need me back… expected me to take my time in fact.
It was one of those unexpected gifts that come from nowhere… and the delivery made, I drove to Ilkley where I walked once more across the familiar paths and knew I had come home.
I was asked to join this challenge by El of Far Out in Africa. If you haven’t been over there, do have a look. Wonderful pictures and stories!
In turn, today, should he choose to accept… I nominate Richard Ankers.
The rules of Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
