Here's another little waterfall in the Lake District.

I hope you like it!

The Lake District, also known as The Lakes or Lakeland, is a rural area in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes and its mountains (or fells), and its associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the Lake Poets.

The central and most-visited part of the area is contained in the Lake District National Park—one of fourteen National parks in the United Kingdom. It lies entirely within Cumbria, and is one of England's few mountainous regions. All the land in England higher than three thousand feet above sea level lies within the National Park. The Lake District also contains Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England.

Hi Joe. This is a very nice compostion . Fine detail and rich colours. The way you have cropped this is just right for this type of picture. I am not the biggest fan of blurred water. well done TFS.

Hola Joe,
Preciosa composición de esta bonita cascada, excelente luz y color tan natural, el agua en su punto idóneo de exposición, gracias por compartirla, saludos
José Ramón

Another beautiful long exposure Joe.
The composition is perfect
Those mossy banks look like exactly the kind of place I'd find native orchids here.
(If it was here,those little rounded leaves a little up on the right would be them)
A really wonderful capture of a beautiful place.
Theres a little waterfall like this just a few minutes drive from here,and this inspires me to go out and photograph it.
I might try tomorrow if the weathers ok.

Great composition, I like the diagonal of the river. I think it's not possible to do a better picture.

Hi Joe

Hi Joe,
that's just wonderful, I love the silky effect so much. I never made such a shot and so I have to say: congratulations, you did a perfect job here.
Thanks and greetings

This is rather nice Joe... I wonder if running the burn tool at something like 5% on shadows over the moss would gives these areas just a touch more contrast?

Rivers, lakes and such are all protected here...even lands which flow over becuase of nearby riparian streams...also called wetlands..we have a wetlands protection act...hard to build in such areas and just as well...Very nice landscape Joey..

Beautifully captured waterfall Joe. Composition is wonderful... one of those places you would like to frequent often. TFS


Hi Joey,
very romantic, this creek and the lush green around. A place to take your picknick and get out the camera. As the experienced and sophisticated photographer you are, you waited for a sunspot on the scene to lighten it up! Excellent work, again, Joey. And thanks for the explanations on National parks and Cumbria.

Best regards

Hello Joe
I like your little cascade, and the fresh green from the margins. TFS

Hi Joe

A very nice reminder of summer, mate!
Gorgeous greens here and i really like your composition here as well - with the shape of the waterfall...which to me looks like a mirrored AC-DC sign :))
Very nice use of the long shutter speed here and great DOF to ensure a wonderful overall sharpness.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Joe
Another waterfal and again perfect composition. I also like saturated colors and great blured water effect.
Very good job

Hi Joe, an other fantastic view of a lovely waterfall, great exposure and splendid effect on water, wonderful light and colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Joe,
Another beautiful picture representing your new 'softer line';o) Seriously, this is really an impressive landscape. Have to try the technique myself with my unique style 400DO + extender=) as I don't often carry anything shorter with me. Excellent work!

A superb scene shot with a relatively long time posing Joe. Great details on the banks too. Colours also wonderful.

Hello Joe

Another beautiful capture of this small cascade.
I really like the fluidity of the water and how it flows into the pool at the bottom.
Excellent sharp focus and detail.The 5 sec exposure worked well here.
Lovely natural colours.

Hello Joe,
What a beautiful composition! Excellent DOF and I love the different mosses and plants surrounding the waterfall and the colours are beautiful. I'm not too keen on 'milky' water but I know that's against the mainstream!:-)
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
