Scalebar Force, Settle, Yorkshire Dales by 

Scaleber Force is convenienly situated by the road side (Settle to Airton) so nobody needs walk more than a few yards to view the waterfall. As with many waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales its a surrounded by a small copse. The drop on the waterfall is around 20 feet. The best option to include the waterfall with a decert walk is from Malham Tarn to Settle via Langscar Gate then Stockdale Lane rather than the usual route past Attermire Scar.

    Stunning capture. Would love to know how you do this. I have a Nikon D80 so what settings do you use and how.

  • All the settings are in the description above Noelene. Waterfalls are best shot on a brightish but overcast day or in shade. Sunny days can be very difficult causing highlight burn outs. I also use a circular polariser to reduce reflections off the water. Use aperture priority at f-16 to f-22 focusing approximately 1/3 into the frame. And don’t forget a tripod! If for some reason you cant get slow enough shutter speeds I use a ND filter of about 2-3 stops. Hope this helps
