A rainy day at a waterfall near Skipton

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I had a run over to a private wood near Skipton in North Yorkshire which had several waterfalls and I was in my element scrambling from one to the other down slippy rocks and through woodland with little or no paths and just to add to the pleasure it started raining :o). Anyway here is the first offering and it's one best seen at max size to enjoy the detail.

The green foliage of the trees complements the beautiful cascading waterfall into the clear rock pools below. Other words cracking shot Sam..Like..Regards Richard

Another cracker Sam,all that rain certainly makes the greenery very lush,nice job mate.I'm summising you asked permission before you went exploring, in any case you did right not to map accurately.Maybe wadders should have done the same

Cheers Neil, I did ask and the very friendly guy who owns the land was extremely helpful in showing me how to get to the numerous falls along the way. This one is a fall Wadders doesn't seem to have a picture of and that's probably because it is even more off the beaten track than the others and hard to get to without very good knowledge of the location which is where asking permission paid dividends. Anyone tracing the location and wanting to go would be advised to ask at the house with the grass roof before venturing any further because public access is minimal hence my not mapping it correctly.

Cheers Richard,as always your comments are very welcome.

kind regards, Sam

You're very right Ian, a bit less of the wet stuff wouldn't hurt mind :o), I can only do so many waterfalls before you , I and everyone else will get sick of seeing them which i hope isn't just yet as i've a few to come ;o)

Many thanks !

The detail is phenominal and so is the overall effect. like. Best, Andy. Will have a look at the other one now!

Cheers Stuart, for the detail in this one I would probably agree with you.

Hi Andy on the subject of detail :o) ( phenominal ?):o) You know me I had to say something;o).

Many thanks and best wishes, Sam

Nice photo Sam, is it a merge of 4 photo's, I've just noticed the massive number of pixels? I have a similar photo (not as good) and it's about 35 years old on 35mm film, its not changed much, may be a bit wetter. I will have to try and find it. Did you get your feet wet, I did !

Yorkshire Sam on July 6, 2012

Cheers Wadders, you'll have to scan that pic and let us see it .This image is actually smaller than my full size version and was 14 frames in total all shot in portrait mode. I had my chest waders on so no but I know what you mean, anyone wearing wellies alone would have to get a wetting I reckon. That tricky journey to it alone will ensure this waterfall never gets too many visitors. I'm guessing you are local to here and have been for many years by the earlier photo reference. Maybe when I go back in autumn as planned we could cover all 4 falls together.
