Cauldron Snout Waterfall


Well I am always impressed with High Force. A little further up the River Tees and just below the dam at Cow Green Reservoir is this mighty gem of waterfall Cauldron Snout. A cascade that cuts through Whin Sill Rock that belies Teesdale’s watery landscapes. Cascading for 180m with a drop of 60m. The spray was troublesome; the perils of long exposure photography and water are always photographers Nemesis. This was a 30 second exposure with a Lee Big Stopper.

The path was rather intrepid, a rock descent from the Moor from the dam keeping the fall to the right of us. My Dad, managed quite well. Had the patience of a saint,  patron of travel….his name sake. The photograph was edited in lightroom to remove any chromatic aberrations and the standard lens correction. I messed around in Lightroom and did not get the desired effect until I popped over in Colour EFex Pro 2 used the detail enhancer which has given it HDR look without looking too harsh.

Thanks for calling by today.
