Photographer's Note

Another shot from my Saturday jaunt to Healy Dell in Rochdale, Lancashire (only a couple more to go, I promise!). The steely eyed amongst you may spot that this is taken from the patch of rocks visible in the top right of my last two posts, much closer to the falls and showing less of the river.

With this one I wanted to use the rocks running down into the water for foreground interest and to provide a 'static' part of the image to contrast with the movement of the waterfall in the top third of the shot. I also liked how varied they were, from worn down pebbles to broken chunks of slate and bricks.

Used a circular polarizer set to about half strength to allow some visibility through the water in the middle of the shot, whilst maintaining some of the light reflections at the bottom of the falls.

Like my last two posts, this one also suffers froma little focus softening on the couple of rocks in the immediate foreground, something which I'll pay much more attention to the next time I head out for shots like this.

Once more, please let me know what you think as I do really appreciate any and all feedback.
