Took time to explore a local area where I had heard a waterfall, it was a bit of a trek, not in distance more in plugging through mud and climbing up the steep side of a valley.... Boy was I cream crackered, I`m finding I am  too old for this.

 

f8 1/3rd  ISO 100  Nikkor [email protected] 60mm. PP applied.

 

CC welcomed if still allowed..?

Boy Geedee, I think this is one of your best. The composition is great with those leading lines into the image. The water flow is just right to my eye. Exposure is right on, and super job of focus. Great job!

I agree with Mark, it's not only one of your best...it is your best landscape photo.  Wonderful composition, love the hidden parts of the falls, exposure is right on and just slow enough to turn the water into magic, great stuff geedee!

Agreed - your best image posted here and a fitting exit. Sharp and well composed. Exposure looks great with the right shutter speed for the water flow. An overall pleasing image.

Nice shot Gedee!  But the water - it's not crystal clear; it has that "misty" look to it B)  I think it's awesome.

THANKS for the kind comments guys..!

 

Although this is no more than a mile from home, I had not been there before.. and getting there was not easy, I got caught in a bog and sunk up to the tops of my wellies for a few steps which took some effort to extract myself from... effing cows sure churn the land up..(-:   

 

When I framed this up (amongst others) I did not think there was anything outstanding in any of the scenes, thus guess it must be down to me adopting a tad more PP "effects" than usual...?

 

The sun was setting fast behind me to the left and I framed things up to minimise the effect of the mix of light and shadow across the top of that section of the falls, though the light creeps in at the top of my pic..? Sure no problem for my camera to handle the dynamic range, but the shadow line across the pic seemed best avoided.

 

Have attached another pic somewhat spoiled by the old bit of discarded timber...! I had already climbed up and down much of the entire length of the waterfall removing plastic bags and the likes, and the sun was setting FAST behind the opposite side of the glen and I wanted to capture the light on the trees and the moss covered dry stone dyke... So climbing down and back up again was not a realistic option as by this time I was pretty well knackered..(-:

 

Luck was with me again it seems, as while the sun was bright and setting circa 2`o`clock from the scene, directly ahead there was thick low cloud which equated to me not having to use an ND grad and thus interfering with the light falling on the section of the trees which were above the line of the hills...?

 

As ever any CC welcomed... if anybody is still out there...(-:

 

For the reasons previously stated whereas f11 would have been my first choice,  thus.. f8..Duh.  1/3rd   ISO 100  Nikkor [email protected] 27mm  again decisions on SS made relative to the moss covered landscape and less so for the water..
