This photograph shows a lone sheep dog featured against the rocky ledges off the summit of Roseberry Topping with the rolling North Yorkshire Moors stretching below. Roseberry Topping is a distinctive hill on the border between North Yorkshire and the borough of Redcar and Cleveland, of which it has long been a symbol. Its summit has a distinctive half-cone shape with a jagged cliff, which has led to many comparisons with the much higher Matterhorn in Switzerland. The hill is an outlier of the North York Moors uplands. It is formed from sandstone laid down in the Middle and Lower Jurassic periods, between 208 and 165 million years ago, which constitutes the youngest sandstone to be found in any of the National Parks in England and Wales. Its distinctive conical shape is the result of the hill's hard sandstone cap protecting the underlying shales and clays from erosion by the effects of ice, wind and rain. Photography by Tim Wallace.
