Having purchased a Lee 10 stopper a few weeks ago I'm itching to get out with it . Anybody know of any decent waterfalls around Burnley ? I've done the Healey Dell,Goit Stock & Scaleber thing & I could do with somewhere I can get to within 30 minutes or so !!!!

10 stops is pretty OTT for waterfalls. You really only need to slow down the exposure to about 1/10th of a second to get the right combination of milkiness (always assuming that you don't object to milky waterfalls) and sparkle. Anything longer turns the vibrancy of the waterfall into a smear of snot against the rocks.

A much more useful way of utilising your new filter is for lake and shore shots where 30 second exposures can occasionally be useful. Or for getting rid of moving objects and people in street scenes.
