Autumnal Swaledale Falls

Edit Original 2 Web

Living so close to the Yorkshire Dales there are plenty of opportunities to get out with a camera and hike, especially since moving to a mirrorless system which has enabled me to reduce the wieght and size of my kit. By taking a few prime lenses and a very light and compact tripod I can walk all day.

Swaledale is at the far end of the Dales from where we live and an area less well known to me. However, Fran and I have scouted the rivers in the area years ago when we were keen kayakers, so I had a rough idea of where many of the waterfalls are located, but it was great to find some of the less well known waterfalls during this weekends trip.

I am currently putting together a mini guide to photographing waterfalls in Swaledale which will cover lens focal lengths that we used at the various falls we visited, together with the shutter speeds and the filters we used and time permitting some of the processing tips of the RAW files I edited.

I will also upload a selection of finished images of the waterfalls in the area.
