John and I took a trip to Bowlees yesterday, in search of Gibson's Cave. A lovely walk along Bowlees Beck brought us to the lower falls, and after climbing some steps set into the hillside, and walking the woodland path alongside the stream we reached Gibson's Cave, and the waterfall known as Summerhill Falls, and the end of our walk.
Erosion over the years has produced "Gibson's Cave" - You can walk onto the shelf behind the waterfall, and thus stand behind the falling water. Gibsonís Cave takes its name from a local vagabond who hid from police in its dark underbelly. Thereís an atmosphere within this chamber, and the roar of the water is deafening at times as it echoes around the "cave". Whilst we were there, some rocks plummeted into the plunge pool, so glad we werent in the way! We thought it was just rock fall because of erosion but during the shoot, John noticed something moving at the top of the falls, a quick look up and we saw some cows perilously close to the edge, and the stones had obviously been dislodged by them. Imagine shooting a waterfall and seeing a cow come tumbling down into shot!. Two cows in particular seemed to be having a bit of a fight and we did think at one point that one would come tumbling down into "the cave". It was a surreal sight to see, and their mooing eerily echoed around the chamber.

The tree branches were moving in the breeze, and the slow shutter speed obviously caught that movement.

As always Thanks for Looking.

beautifully captured, and so interesting with the write up, it would have been a strange sight to see cattle falling into your shot..... I love the slight movement in the greenery, I feel like I am there.... just need the sound of the water

Honey Roast Ham, Geordie Caviar, Fresh bread, fuit selection, cheeses, pickled chillies, and a bottle of Truner Road. How could we not have enjoyed it?
Looked such a beautiful scene when we got there, but with your composition and processing this is stunning.
All the colours and movement we had hoped for and more. A great foreground choice and it leads you right into the image. I can still hear the roar of the water even now.
Great work Chant.

What a civilised way to enjoy your photography, be great coming out with you two instead of a bottle of water and a packet of crisps, congrats on the HC Chant

My visit was a first too this last weekend and I know just what you mean about the foliage blowing around, on the walk in it seemed lovely and calm but arriving at the cave it was very different.

Anyway you still managed a very good result as you usually do though that added golden leaf is a bit cliche for my liking .
