Project 52 #1 – Waterfall in the Sun

Waterfall in the sun

As my first #project52 entry, I thought I’d choose one my favourite subjects - waterfalls.

Today, Cheryl and I drove up to the Dark Peak for a walk. Initially, we drove over to Castleton, planning to walk up Cave Dale and over to Mam Tor. However, the strong winds suggested otherwise. Therefore, after a quick stroll, we returned to the car and drove over to Fairholmes.

Parked at the visitor’s centre, we walked up Ladybower west bank up to Howden Dam. The reservoir was absolutely full - lots of water pouring over the dams. Just before Howden dam, we found a few small waterfalls, this being the most photogenic. After following a natural course down the hill, it is channelled through a small tunnel behind this wall into the dam.

I was quite happy with the photo’s taken today - the light varied from flat when the sun disappeared behind the clouds, through to brilliant directional light. A great walk all in all.
