One from the River Etive from last week.



That pic brings back memories.
I have a few taken from almost the same spot, of us kayaking down the Etive.
That's called the Triple Falls, and the put-in in not far above.

There's a much more serious drop a little further on,which I was very happy not to mess up!

Some of the rocks were green and wet further down so I had to skip taking the shots. As you probably know some of them are tiny overhangs not even big enough for a tripod.

I don't fancy kayaking down it :o

Looking back through this, I remember Ruth's spot by Richmond, when Dad was stationed at Catterick, and we went swimming there in the heatwave of '76. I remember having little fish nibbling at my feet.

This might be the best photo I've ever taken. Partly because I visualised it before I took it...

The falls are a little distant in this shot, but it includes the landscape for context.
Click for bigness.

These are the Nevada Falls and the Vernal Falls on the Merced river in Yosemite, California.
The scale is hard to judge, but the upper falls ( the Nevada Fall ) is about 600', or about 180m. The lower fall ( the Vernal Fall ) is about half that.

The lump to the left of the Nevada Fall is called Liberty Cap, and the massive granite feature with the beak to the left is Half Dome, an arduous hike.
The picture is taken from the Panorama Trail, which leads from Glacier Point, past the top of the Illilouette Falls ( out-of-sight to the right of the picture ) round to the top of the Nevada falls.

Sorry, I got my photos mixed up.
The following photos are not the Nevada Fall, they are the Yosemite Fall, which is on a different river in Yosemite...

It's really hard to convey the scale.

That's the problem with Nevada. Conveying the scale.  The Grand Canyon looks like a ploughed field in photos.

The waterfall through the trees does an excellent job though.

Depending on where you are that is either an "Oh sh*t, the Glacier is going to go" or "Wow the waterfall is freezing"

From today's bike ride and walk:


Glas allt waterfall, Lochnagar. by Ron Lowe, on Flickr

This is the same waterfall and nearby in full spate yesterday.
I was running on the path, and the tributaries were so high that the path crossings were impassible, and I had to back-track upstream to find a safe crossing point.


Glas allt by Ron Lowe, on Flickr

Chickened out of this crossing here, there's a fair drop off to the left.
