Weir-Stock Ghyll-Ambleside

By PaulLiley  
Another taken at the same time as yesterdays upload of the swirling water. Thanks to you all who pointed out the figures in the top of the frame. I totally agree about cropping them off. I did this in a similar shot of the swirling water taken at the same time but I inadvertantly uploaded the wrong one. Cheers to all you eagle eyed watchers. Your support and comments are always appreciated.
I didn't have my ND filter or tripod with me to achieve a slower shutter speed and blur the water even more (this was the intention) so I used ISO100 and the smallest aperture I could and hand held it. Not perfect by any means. Be prepared is the answer but my defence I did have both grandchildren with me which was more satisfying than lugging filters and tripods!!

It is lovely Paul - the water colour is lovely - it all looks so natural - who needs a tripod if you can take shots like this without one. The waterfall is beautiful.

Excellent handheld work and kept two little kids under control as well at the same timeGrin Very well done!
I do like the water as what it looed like rather than the 'milky' one. The texture and light look very good, an excellent handheld taken image, enjoy it more than a tripod one... Wink
BTW, thank you very much for your comments on my photo, I'm very glad to hear your ideas and thoughts about my photos, you are more than welcome.
