Catrigg Force Yorkshire Dales
The weather was pretty wet in the Yorkshire Dales over the weekend and the streams and rivers were in spate. Have they been anything else lately? The walk up to Catrigg Force from the village of Stainforth was fairly steep and muddy in places, but it was certainly worth the effort. As waterfalls go it is fairly small, but set as it is in a narrow wooded gorge it has a secluded feel to it and in spate conditions is still pretty impressive. I used a long exposure to create a sense of movement in the water and to help prevent the upper section of the image from burning out I used a graduated ND8 filter. I also produced a short video sequence using the 5D to give you an idea of what the location is like.
