Thornton Force

By jeanie    
Back to the pictures I took when coming home from the North West Meet last weekend and this is at Thornton Force waterfall, at Ingleton. We were lucky to catch the falls in full flow and in this particular image I wanted to capture all the cascades in front of the main fall.

There were some people clambering to go to the back of the waterfall itself but I declined Smile

You can see Bex stood in the top left area of the image. I have included her for scale, to show the size of the falls. I think she liked these falls too - her first visit.

Youve captured some lovely tones in the water Jeanie, with good watermovement. Good composition, had to really look to see Bex, and youre right leaving her in the frame really does give a sense of the scale of these falls.

Lovely shot and from a different angle to the norm. I know these falls well and have stood behind the falls, they look like lace curtains when viewed from behind!

Glad you mentioned, Bex there. I thought it was pixie and you'd been to Dingly DellWink
The sense of scale helps put the shot in context.
Nice one.

A nice shot Jeannie and a like the way the middle of the image is in sharpest focus. I think I would have preferred to see either all of the main drop (which is Thornton Force) or none of it. I have HDR images of this set of falls including Beezely.

Yes a different perspective - wanted something more original although I have lots of others, and the usual views were taken too Smile

Good grief, it's only when you see the figure that you realize just how magnificent these falls are. I love the fact that you've managed to contain so much dramatic motion in the frame without it appearing too busy.
