Nelly Ayre Foss by Phillip Dove

Nelly Ayre Foss is near Goathland, North Yorkshire. (near Whitby) “Heartbeat Country”. The river was quite full on this day and Autumn colours brought an added bonus as they complement the colours in the waterfall which are, I believe, a result of the river passing over ironstone rock.

I returned to photography a few years ago after a long break. My ambition was to make images of some of my favourite places. Discovering the work of photographers has also encouraged me to explore new horizons.
If some of my images give pleasure to others, then that makes it even more worthwhile.

    Nice job Phillip! Do you happen to remember about how long this exposure was?

  • Hi JR,
    Thanks for your interest. This was in fact a blend of 3 images at f16 with speeds of 1 sec to 1/6 second to give the max detail in both shadows and highlights. The top half of the image was ‘multiplied’ several times in cs3 to bring some colour back to the sky. I have alwats struggled with this type of image because of the vast range of tones but I think that at last I am getting there.
    Kind Regards,

  • Cheers Kathy,
    Having this featured is a real bonus to me as I have often admired other images of waterfalls and not managed to get it right myself. Now I feel that I am getting there at last.
