Keen to find some new locations, I searched my local OS map for signs of anything remotely interesting. Having spotted a waterfall tucked away in a valley five minutes from my house, I thought I would investigate. I thought I would be looking at some small rapids and low angles. I certainly wasn't expecting to find a gorge like this! I took my father (kaybee) back there a couple of days later for a better look.
The last set of falls is about fifteen feet, and you can only reach this spot by wading through several feet of fast moving water. Cue rubber pants and radios Wink
What's really incredible to me is that my family have lived here almost my entire life, and we have never heard this place mentioned, or seen another photograph of it. We only live three miles away.

It's amazing what's just round the corner. I think I clicked your Dad's shot too...

Google Earth's aerial imagery is good for viewing your local area from above too. I've found some really nice woodland walks close to me and I've been here nearly 4 years now...

Edit: I see the aerial imagery isn't that up to date for this location yet... Where it is up to date, it's a good method. Smile

Thanks Paul, you cheeky sod Wink
Cheers Chris. Unfortunately, it's not really an option for us most of the time. My house is actually right on the border of a high-low resolution section of aerial photo coverage. To the east it's fine, but to the west it's blurry about halfway to Glasgow
EDIT: you found it I see. I'll put a mod up, it's actually quite funny Smile

I have noticed a similar thing, through photography I am finding lots of interesting features locally which I never knew existed.
You made good use of the wide lens, I like the contrast in different rates of water flow.

David, use Multimap or Windows Live Local and you get excellent aerial photos of Livi. Some parts you can also get birdseye views of the area which are much more recent photos. And a great shot!
