High Force

By scottf75
This is the first picture I've uploaded since I started thinking about the shot I'm taking.

It's taken at a place called High Force which is in Middleton in Teesdale and I understand it to be the highest waterfall in England.

I've used this shot because it is the best of a bad bunch, it was taken yesterday (11.02.06) and wasn't the best of days so the sky was very overcast with cloud and, as such looks blown (correct terminology??).

I was determined to get some shots so I could upload and hopefully start to learn how to improve so any comments would be appreciated.

Thanks for looking.

I think it would benefit from a mono conversion in ps - JP

High Force is a waterfall on the River Tees near Middleton-in-Teesdale, County Durham, England. Although often described as the highest waterfall in England, at 20 metres (70 feet) it is not - Cautley Spout in Cumbria's Howgill Fells is almost 180 metres (600 feet high), and Hardraw Force in North Yorkshire has an unbroken drop of 30 metres (100 feet).

nice enough foreground and the waterfall has come out well. if you want to retain any detail in the sky, you'll need to use some grad filters or a tripod and take 2 shots (one fast for the sky and one normal for the rest) and blend later in photoshop.

Hardraw Force is little more than a trickle most of the year round :-( Been there a few times. it is pretty high though, and you can get to the top and look over the edge. not got any shots though.

cautley sprout looks more like a series of little falls than one big one
