July's photo of the month captures the excitement of the Tour de France's visit to Harrogate.
What a great couple of days they were! Yorkshire showed the world why it is known to many as "God's own county" as the region put on a fantastic show for the Grand Départ of the renowned Tour de France.
This month's photograph shows a packed Harrogate welcoming in the cyclists as they raced towards the finishing line on The Stray.
I was able to share a window above the pop up pub in Parliament about 300 yards from the finish. If you look closely you can see Mark Cavendish about to fall off.
It was a glorious day in Harrogate, and wonderful to share in a once in a lifetime occasion - and capture it all on camera.
