Heavy and consistent rain heading towards Bank Holiday Monday (of course) has produced a swollen River Ure and the Falls can be heard half a mile away from our house.
The same rain has created some marvellous photo opportunities around our numerous waterfalls.
Torrential water flows compared to my first shoots have combined with familiarity in working with this kind of subject to produce some very pleasing results. My first example (above) is at West Burton, with Cauldron Falls living up to their name with a deafening power of water we have never seen there in all the years we have visited this lovely place.
Being just half a mile away, Aysgarth Falls are an almost daily Freddie walk from our house. But this view of the Lower Falls almost covering its usually accessible rocky edges is especially rewarding.
Normally the best view of The Falls is upstream, facing the oncoming flow, but a glance downstream reveals this dramatic alternative view of crashing water.
The Upper Falls also provide a great spectacle.
