[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Went to Lydford Gorge today and saw the waterfalls down in the gorge. White Lady waterfall is one of them, and one of the main attractions alongside the Devil's Cauldron. It's a gorgeous area, right near the village of Lydford, which is between Tavistock and Okehamton in Devon.

There are a couple of walks at Lydford Gorge, and quite steep, slippery and narrow at times but well worth it as you follow the River Lyd.

Hi Nyssa. Welcome to TN. This is a marvellous view of the very tall waterfall. Having the green backdrop makes the water stand out very well. Good presentation. Murray.

Hello Nyssa,
I agree that the border works well with this image. On a landscape photo I find they can often act as a sort of window frame giving the illusion that the scene goes on beyond the frame. (if that makes any sense) Nice job getting the whole falls in one shot. The exposure and sharpness look good and I like the bit of reflection in the foreground pool.
