Photographer's Note

This is my favourite view of the Lower Aysgarth Falls. The actual falls stayed further in the distance. As mentioned before, when the water level is low, the river is quite narrow, leaving a lot of extraordinary rock formations dry. The shapes and colours are stunning. This really is a place of an outstanding natural beauty. Because in this photo the actual waterfall can be only spot with difficulty, I bet many people seeing this view would start with the question: what is it? Hence to anticipate your question I preceded this photo with a view of the waterfall. Aysgarth Falls stretch for almost a mile along the River Ure. According to Wikipedia, the name Aysgarth originates from Old Norse and means “the open space in the oak trees”.

The Falls were used as a scenery for the Robin Hood movie starring Kevin Costner. I have showed you previously another famous spot used in that movie (Sycamore Gap along the Hadrian Wall), so this is the second one already.
