Photographer's Note

We have had a lot, a lot, of rain in the last 24 hours, and I am just hoping the water-levels hold up 'til the weekend for a little bit of waterfall spotting.

In the meanwhile, I looked back for the last time I ventured out in such circumstance, and find it was over two years ago to here, Hardraw Force.

Hardraw was, and is still, a popular attraction as far back as Victorian times, when the gorge that the fall has cut for itself was a popular destination for parties, music recitals, picnics and suchlike. Indeed, even earlier it had been painted by John Turner, and written about by William Wordsworth, so you can feel in very august company if you should visit yourself. There was a time when you could walk behind the fall, but more erosion of the lip has made this a trickier, if not more foolhardy, exercise.

This day as you can see was very overcast, but we can't always pick and choose, can we ?!

Some of you might recognise the expert's stance of the photographer providing the obligatory splash of red; for those who don't look here !,

Unfortunately, the water falls on private property, and you need to pay, modestly, to visit. More fortunately, the entrance is through the portals of one of the area's finest pubs, so if you don't get wet on the outside while visiting, you can be sure to get wet on the inside before you leave..
