Ilam Rock, Dovedale
Ilam Rock and the footbridge over the River Dove
It's dull and very showery today so I decided to upload another of the photos taken on my recent walk in Dovedale. Ilam Rock is a tall pillar of limestone near the Milldale end of Dovedale. I would guess that it is 40-50m tall. It is one of several rock pillars in the dale. (Canon EOS 60D, Tamron 10-24mm @ 10mm, HDR of 3 images in Photomatix)
