Though not as fast flowing, or anywhere near as high as it's well known near neighbour High Force, nevertheless, Summerhill Falls loses nothing in it's splendour, especially as it's own erosion over the years has produced "Gibson's Cave" - the grotto or shelf behind the actual waterfall itself that you can walk into, and thus stand behind the falling water

Nice shot and description Richie. I have been once behind a bigger waterfall and I remember that it was as if the water had taken the air away, one had to take deep breaths.

If practice makes perfect and nobody is perfect, then why practice?

I really love the way the light is reflected off the wet rocks. A beautiful scene. Old Gibson is a lucky guy.

Looks like a good place to take a cold shower Count B. Wonderful work with your Nikon I presume. I will check the specs and learn something.

---you can walk into, and thus stand behind the falling water--

Would give me the idea of taking a shower without becoming that wet, lol.

Love the deep tones in this one Richie, as they give this image a somewhat mysterious touch. Very fine post again!

Regards, cornelius.
