A waterfall in Deepdale

November 6, 2015

Some might call me a bit old fashioned. When I want to take photos I use one of those rather quaint things called a camera. Now I’m not so old fashioned that I use a film camera. In fact I was the first person I knew who turned to digital photography. What I mean is, I don’t use a phone or, heaven forbid, try to waft a tablet in front of my face to take a photo. I like a camera with a viewfinder I can hold to my eye. Of course, from time to time I make use of the live screen on the back of the camera and at times I could wish for one with a swivel screen. But I grew up in the age of the box camera and found the eye level viewfinder such a boon and I have no long term wish to go back.

One ‘hazard’ of my choice is that if I take a portrait format photo I have to rotate it on my computer and that’s what I had to do with this photo of a waterfall in Deepdale, not far from Dent where we were staying.

That’s the right way round.

This waterfall is on Gastack Beck and is close beside the road from Dent to Ingleton. This is not a hugely visited area but is as lovely as elsewhere in the Yorkshire Dales.

Let’s see a different view of the same fall.
