Hi Force

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The magnificent High Force waterfall on the upper part of the River Tees. Tricky lighting conditions made it hard work to get a good balanced shot but I'm reasonably happy with this result though I do intend to go back early one morning when the light will be softer and coming from a better direction.

I've a feeling that this turned out better than you expected Sam...light problems again!! I wasn't sure how that volume of water would look with a slow shutter speed,but it looks fine to me mate;-)

PS. Not had time to load mine on the pc yet,family visiting taking up my time.

Definately your kind of terrain Andy with all the rocks and cliff faces. Whether it will appeal to "all my fans" is a different matter but time will tell ( or not) :o)

Cheers for the fave !

regards, Sam

Yes Sam, but the day I take a tour de force such as this will be the day Chesterfield win the Champions League!


Best, Andy

If you notice Neil at the time I took this the sun was only shining way over in the distance so that made it a bit easier but all other attempts when the sun was on the falls failed miserably. The lack of good light leaves it looking a bit flat and lacking depth for my liking but as we learned early morning should be better and hopefully next time the weather won't hold things up as it did this time.

Cheers mate !

You are a talented photographer with many great images on your site. I really like your picture. This is Extremely beautiful. I like the square images that provide a tranquil composition, ideal for beautiful scenery. Your picture of the waterfall, you have composed very nicely with the roots of the trees in the foreground, creating an amazing depth. The waterfall is magnificent and worth coming back to the seasons and light conditions, if there is an adequate distance from your home. The tree to the left of the waterfall is very nice in silhouette against the bright background. It would be interesting to see a black and white image with increased contrast of the scenery, a la Ansel Adams, you know! Best regards from Lennart and Sweden

Hi **Lawbild, thank you for your visit and extremely encouraging words. I would agree about doing a seasonal series here but it takes almost one and a half hours to get there by car plus a half hour walk and often the weather here can be completely different from where I live so it would be a gamble at best.

kind regards, Sam :o)
