Nice shot Jean, not a Tor I have been up. When in that area I tend to gravitate to the Twin Falls.

It's worth the short walk up from the reservoir. It's one of those tors that is spread about into a few rock stacks. It was my first visit there, but hopefully not my last Smile ......Must admit that I've never been to the twin falls. I've heard that it's not that easy to get to.

The falls are easy to get to really, you just drop down from the track that leads to Bench Tor, an off shoot track leads down to the river but you have to cross the river to get the best composition. I'm headed down there again on Tuesday but I'll be wearing wellies so I can shoot from in the river for that composition so I might not feel like hiking up to the Tor with all my Medium Format kit. I'll see.

Thanks for the info, Paul. .....Not sure if I'd be keen to cross the river. Though, to be honest, I doubt I'd come up with a composition any better/different to all the shots I've seen of these falls. At least with you being prepared to stand in the river should produce something different! Just hope you don't end up getting wet. So take care!! .... I look forward to seeing the results. Incidentally, what medium format kit are you using?

It's more a brook than a river. Wink I have the Fujifilm GFX 50S for digital and Bronica SQ-Ai for film.

Great camera the Bronny. My good friend (sadly now deceased) used one, whilst I used the Mamiya 645. We both used mostly medium format for our wedding photography, backed up with 35mm which was also used for B&W shots. It's a lot cheaper these days with digital cameras. It was quite expensive back then having to use a Pro Lab for processing the films and the printing. Though I did my own developing and printing of the black and white films. Many happy hours were spent in my home darkroom. Those were the days! .....It's a lot easier these days processing in Lightroom. 😊
