Earlier in the week I popped up the Motorway (a couple of hours) to the Yorkshire Dales. As the weather was nice we decided to do the Waterfalls Walk at Ingleton. We like the walk and often extend it by walking further up Whernside to explore the scar.
Although I took plenty of shots from beyond the waterfalls walk, I wanted to share an image of one of the falls. I think it’s called Hollybush Spout and is quite difficult to capture because of the trees, which when covered with leaves send the contrast range of the scene sky high. Also, most of this part of the trail is on narrow path where you can’t stop for long. I certainly couldn’t set up a tripod on this occasion because of the number of people around.
What I like about this particular image is the rock face. The winter sun was quite low throughout the day and it’s had a nice warming effect on both the rock and the tree branches.
This image was captured handheld using the Fuji X-T2 and Fuji 18-135mm lens. This lens is fast becoming a firm favourite of mine. Providing you can hold it rock steady it will produce excellent image quality. No, it’s not on a par with the Fuji 50-140 f/2.8 but it’s much smaller. It’s a great walkabout or travel lens.
Hope you have a great weekend and enjoy some photography.

There’s another big ‘falls’ (I think it is xxx force) not too far from Ingleton.
Passed it walking once, never forget it. On granite, many ‘pockets’ worn by rain / fall.
They do make a fantastic sight when passing lots of water…..
There’s actually a lot of falls in the area. There’s lots on this trail but also within a 20 mile radius. Some of them are quite large and fit the description you mention.
Thanks, Robin, a beautiful image!
Great stuff, Robin!
I’m pleased to see that after your soul-searching about what to do with the blog, you’ve managed to get out and spend time on the important part of photography. Please carry on, be assured we all appreciate your work.
Thanks. I will continue.
Really good photo of the snout. What impressed me most was the exposure of a tenth of a second without the tripod, that was something else, but your photos are something else.
Thanks. Is this where I admit to leaning on the fence?
