Another fine example of camerawork/photographer combination from the lens of yours truly .
"The Latent Image that exists before development is a truly mystical and exciting entity and some subsequent individual photographs can make the spine tingle."

Thank you indeed for your encouraging comments Gray.

The two Glaze Brook photos were challenging to make, but the light in wooed me. They involved being perched on very narrow ledges I scrambled down to on the very steep & loose 20ft high west bank. Should have used my abseiling gear if I were more sensible about it! Hope to get the climbing gear out soon for a couple of other tricky vantage points I have in mind on other nearby moorland rivers.

Just beautiful, the control over the composition, exposure and shutter speed is exemplary and all the elements gel together to make a lovely image.

Really well found, great composition and combination of so many textures, particularly in the water... Both lateral and vertical... Really nice...

Thank you very much for your encouraging comments Bill I had visited the neighbouring woodlands a week earlier and had wondered what this brook might look like after a period of heavy rains. The evening I made this, the weather had just started to clear after many hours of rain and the warm sunlight had great appeal as it dappled through the trees. It was an atmosphere that had exceed my previous hopes. A precarious stance from which to make my photo felt worth the efforts and risk. It is a lovely stream.

There are other bits to explore a bit downstream, but access is very tricky - might be worth an abseil to see what I can find
