Cauldron Falls


Recent heavy rain has made the waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales rather spectacular. This pretty spot is Cauldron Falls in West Burton. It was sketched by J M Turner in 1816, when he was taking a grand tour of Yorkshire, and from the sketch (part of the Turner Bequest held in The Tate) it seems that little has changed since then. West Burton itself is an attractive Dales village, clustered around a large village green with a market cross.

  1. Every cloud has a silver lining - even rain clouds! The longer exposure has worked really well here.

  4. Nice shot; looks like you've had the tripod out again for a slow shutter speed shot, worked well.

  5. A beautiful capture - I can almost feel the moist air on my cheeks and smell the moss and lichen covered rocks!

  6. That's beautiful...and it was fun to see that sketch, too! We're having rain today...going to turn into some bad storms later today, though. We're snug inside!
