This is one of two shots (I'll put the other up tomorrow) of the waterfalls around Ingelton that I mentioned the other day, and I'm quite pleased with the way this turned out. And other than that I don't really have too much to say about this shot.

One thing I could mention though: I've had a lot of conversations over recent months about film versus digital cameras, particularly with people who are new to photography, or thinking of getting back into it after a time away, and one of the things I always tell them is that I think it's much easier to learn photography with a digital camera than a film based one. Or, maybe, it's not easier, but it's much quicker in that a digital preview of a shot is a great learning tool. Previously I might have trudged off into the countryside, shot a few rolls of film, waited for them to come back from the lab, only to realise that a shutter speed of 1/30 was too fast (or two seconds was too slow) for photographing waterfalls and getting the effect I was after. I could then trudge off again and take some more, ... and so on. Being able to digitally preview a shot seconds after it's taken is wonderfully instructive.
