PHOTO GALLERY: The power of nature

RGS staff and students have been capturing some of the stunning locations we have been enjoying in and around Ripon and the North Yorkshire area in lockdown in all weathers during February.

If you're out for a walk, cycle or run in your local area, why not take a photo and send it to us to add to our monthly photo gallery for others to enjoy?
