In the name of photography !

By pulsar69
Took what I thought was going to be a leisurely stroll out today to keep a bit fit whilst editing thousands of photos , followed an internet route on falling foss falls , arrived at car park and started the walk. Beautiful scenery autumn leaves flowing rivers WOW , however after an hour of walking up some pretty awkward muddy hills and paths I arrived at the falls to find the viewpoint was impossible . Had to slide down the side of a very steep hill using a tree as a stopper with my feet and diggin my tripod in the ground to stop me going over the edge but finally found a good position from the top. This shot ... then made the mistake of a ttempting to get to the bottom and found myself clinging to the branches of trees in the side of a very steep cliff before i knew it ! decided the only way was the hard way so just slid down and got completely covered in mud , then walked through a knee high river and clambered the rest of the way , the photos from the bottom werent worth it either Sad but the rest were Smile , hope you like !

Like the view point in this one so I'm sure it was worth all the effort

The way to the bottom is to follow the path down to the wooden bridge, then hike up the bank / through the stream, although there may have been less water when I did it. There's also a car park just 5min from this viewpoint!

As for the photo, I like the autumnal colours and flowing water. It's got me thinking about going back there myself.
