The pretty town of Reeth. Two frames have been stitched and blended in Photoshop. Towns such as this often abound with art galleries and gift shops (see the feature on card making in this issue).
Don't forget, though, that the regional magazines and county magazines (eg The Dalesman or Yorkshire Life) are based upon areas through which the C2C passes. Other less popular longdistance paths might provide less in the way of competition for commissions. The camping magazines are also an option.
Your submissions to these magazines will need to be of outstanding professional quality, both words and images, because you are competing with enthusiasts who are probably vanity publishing and spending long periods of time in the fells.
LEFT: Don't forget to make images of any interesting locals that you come across on your travels!
BELOW: Over 200 miles and still going strong. The dogs take their first dip in the North Sea on reaching Robin Hood's Bay.
Most of the long-distance paths are already well subscribed with books and guides but Joe Cornish recently found a new opportunity. While we were away (we called but he was out!) he launched his one-hour DVD film shot on a trip from coast to coast in the opposite direction (to us) and visiting a few places that Wainwright's trip passes through. Joe has a gallery in Northallerton (well worth a visit, it's a few yards off the high street in the lovely, old registry, once a money issuing bank). Take your wallet, you are unlikely to get out without succumbing to something! See the books section in the October-November issue for a full review and details.
