High Force

 A little bit out of season, this picture was taken in May last year.

 

High Force in upper Teesdale is often cited as being England’s highest waterfall, although it certainly isn’t the highest, it is one of the largest.

It’s no Niagara Falls, but it is still one of the best features of Teesdale.

Edge of Snoqualmie Falls

This is another panorama from my last visit to Snoqualmie Falls back in October. You can see the previously posted image here. One of the more dramatic views of this 285 ft waterfall at the river’s edge from just downstream will be inaccessible until 2013 as the hiking trail and river access are closed due to a construction project in progress at the falls. The image is composed of 6 vertical frames of 3 bracketed exposures stitched together using Photoshop CS5.

The Ribblehead Viaduct

Located in North Yorshire, close to the border with Cumbria, the Ribblehead Viaduct is the longest vaiduct on the Settle to Carlisle railway line.

This picture was taken a couple of years ago while waiting for Torando to pass over the bridge.
