Still raining at a waterfall near Skipton

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A full frontal this time even though it meant sitting under an umbrella to keep the camera from getting a soaking.

I wish Neil was with you to take a picture, of you sitting under an umbrella in the middle of the stream that would be a classic. I like the full frontal Sam only you could capture this shot..Like Regards Richard

I'd had that same thought Richard re the pic of me sitting there but I wouldn't dare take him to somewhere so precarious,I had a job getting to it myself and we volunteers at AgeUK have to put safety before all else ;-O :o)

Many thanks !

Really nice shot here Sam, one of your forte's methinks... Lovely!! Cheers from Down-Under ~Lex

Cheers Lex with all the wet we've had lately waterfalls tend to be good subjects to fall back on so with all that practice I guess they ought to be my forte by now :o). My only concern is that they all tend to look very similar with a waterfall popping out from it's lush green frame and viewers may soon tire of that similarity. At least in autumn there is a bit of variety in the leaf colours.

kind regards, Sam :o)

Hi Ian as I mentioned to Richard safety is the main issue where the elderly are concerned and so taking Neil somewhere as off the beaten track as that could be a wreckless act. ( He'll have much to say about that comment I'm sure :o) )Holding my own umbrella was inconvenient mind and I'm sure he could have helped with that at least had he been there ;o) Many thanks mate .

Glad to hear that your cup runeth over Sam

I'm thinking a brolly with a programmable remote shutter release in the handle - especially for the British market! I might even get AgeUK sponsorship (I'm sure I qualify too).

If it was me, I'd want this moment to myself. Leaves, grass and all other green stuff take on a beautiful hue when wet, you have captured the colour beautifully.

Also A very pleasing shot. like Best wishes, Andy

Wonderful view of the waterfall in woodland setting - great lighting. Regards Derek

Yorkshire Sam on July 6, 2012

Being where it is Mark I certainly was alone and enjoying it even in the rain if I'm honest. I'm delighted to read you enjoyed the resulting image and colours which as you say are enhanced by the wetness.

best wishes, Sam

Yorkshire Sam on July 6, 2012

Thanks Andy, I'm grateful for you taking time to comment on both.

regards, Sam

Yorkshire Sam on July 6, 2012

Thank you Derek, I'm still surprised at how much light is in this given the grey weather which it has proved once again is the right time to take waterfall shots since it eliminates harsh highlights.

regards, Sam

Aye Jethro and today even the house guttering was running over with the deluge. I'm liking the sound of your inbuilt remote thingy cos a couple of times I nearly dropped mine in t'water tha knows.

Cheers me auld fruit !

Age UK !!, Cheeky bugger;-)) After hearing your description of the place its maybe just as well i wasn't there,make no mistake though,a brolly picture would probably have made an appearance;0)) These are two cracking shots mate,i know the difficulties you faced apart from the rain, i think this one just has the edge.Nice to see them mapped accordingly too.

Yorkshire Sam on July 7, 2012

I knew you'd like that prod grandpa :o). I like a challenge as you know and so I'll be back in autumn for sure and you're welcome too ! The results were worth the trek and there's more to come yet so don't be picking a fave already :o)

Cheers !
