A gem of a waterfall hidden on the fellside above Askrigg. I've visited this place a few times before and have never succeeded in doing the place justice. This was a very awkward shoot due to the volume of water and the amount of spray; I intended to set up my equipment closer to the plunge pool but had to shoot from a distance to avoid getting mist on the lens. The only problem was the overhang of trees in front of the waterfall on the other side of the beck, so being the dedicated photographer I am (wink wink) I rolled up my trouser legs, took off my boots & socks, and waded across the river to do a bit of pruning. In hindsight I think this viewpoint works better in showcasing the waterfall in its surroundings.
