Pouring Down Again!

By MrsS    
Hi All! Happy Thursday Smile

Decided to give you a break from Howick, so here's on from our trip out on Sunday afternoon.

When we went up this way two years ago, MrTheLens told us about this super waterfall, and guess what? When we went into Berwick's tourist office, there was a huge poster of it. So we set off to find it way back then.

To say the least, Dave's directions were brief, consisting of "Go doon the road and it's just there, bit of a scramble doon, mind" - all done with his wonderful North Eastern accent - and try as we might, although we could hear the water, we could NOT find the way down to it, finally giving up the ghost and heading back to the car, surrounded by a swarm of flies with HUGE teeth (I'm a tad phobic about things buzzing around my head!).

So anyway, armed with better directions this time "I tell yer it's just doon there, man!" we decided to try again, and once again failed on our first attempt.

Fortunately, Paul had spotted a track off to the left, just after we entered the track, and with a "nothing ventured - nothing gained" attitude, we took it. After a short wander, in a mostly downwards directions, there it was - the now infamous Routin Lynn.

Hope you like, there was just about enough light to make it interesting, and it was worth the trip (I think). At least there were no flies around this time! Smile

Thanks for calling in, going to cook dinner and then settle down to watch Liverpool on tele - fingers crossed! Smile

LARGE might just be a bit more rushing-waterly bigger Wink

Thanks Fraser, Annie, Carol & Oli Smile

The only problem once we did find it, Carol, was that it's quite an enclosed space and the spray was everywhere! Smile

Beautiful image. I love the colour and detail in the wet rock contrasting with the softness of the water.

A very rushing-waterly lovely shot! As I've similarly commented on your other half's latest upload, the softness of the water against the hardness of the rocks is excellent! I have to admit that I find the greenery on the left a tad distracting though...

Thanks MrH, Peter, Cathy, Brian, MrF & Jeannie Smile

We had enough trouble finding it, never mind geo-tagging it, MrH Wink

Just goes to show, Cathy, I deliberately kept the greenery in to add a touch of contrasting colour. Good job we're not all the same, tho', isn't it? Smile

You & me both, Missus! Smile
