Thank you all for the votes and wonderful comments on my last upload "Shadow at Malham Tarn"

Up in the dales last week called at Janet's Foss early to avoid the crowds. After the recent rains there was plenty of water going over the edge and almost me Smile

Janet's Foss is a small waterfall in the vicinity of the village of Malham, North Yorkshire, England. It carries Gordale Beck over a limestone outcrop topped by tufa into a deep pool below. The pool was traditionally used for sheep dipping, an event which took on a carnival air and drew the village inhabitants for the social occasion.

The name Janet (sometimes Jennet) is thought to be a folk tale reference to a fairy queen held to inhabit a cave at the rear of the fall. Foss is a Nordic word for waterfall, still used in Scandinavia, and is presented in a number of cases in England as 'force'.

This taken at the top of the Falls. A more traditional view of the falls to follow Smile

Thank you for taking the time to look.

Cheers

John

Excellent capture of just enough water movement and a fascinating commentary.
