This is another shot of the waterfall at Welcombe Mouth taken rather earlier in the day from the previous upload.
Welcombe Mouth lies on the Atlantic Coast on the Devon side of the North Devon/Cornwall border midway between Bideford and Bude. The parish of Welcombe comprises a scattered group of hamlets incorporating approximately 100 households. The village sits astride a deep valley which leads a meandering stream to the cliff edge at Welcombe Mouth where it ends in a picturesque waterfall. St Nectan's Church looks over the northern flank of the valley while The Old Smithy Inn lies on the southern side. Some of the people who live in Welcombe commute to neighbouring towns and villages to work on a daily basis, others run businesses from home including the pub, pottery, tourist accommodation, builders and farmers.
Welcombe is part of the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

i always enjoy your nature scenes! Who wouldnt!?.
You have captured 3 or 4 little tiny waterfalls that put a smile on my face.
The best part of the photo though, is how the subject extends itself outward. Creates lots of depth like that.

The lateral viewpoint on the waterfall is unusual and works well here using the lead-lines offered by the rocky crops. I like the colours and details to be observed in the rocks, which contrast nicely with the adjacent greenery. Some slight over exposure in the area of the sky, but it is nothing to write home about and certainly doesn't spoil our overall enjoyment of the image.

This is quite a remarkable scenery, rather unusual, and the small waterfalls look so neat and well arranged. It's a well composed photo with fairly discreet but lovely colours, espcially the yellow and gren tones in the corner.

Nice landscape and great result with your photo, I like the depth effect given by these lines, good effect too with water good time for the exposure.

Unusual setting for a waterfall, almost as it is the wrong side around. But the scenery is of corse beautiful. The exposure just long enough to give the water some silkiness and the disappearing rocks in the background form the perfect ending for the course of the water.
have a great weekend

I remember this place in B&W. In colour it doesn't disappoint wither. Wonderful slow shutter has revealed the misted cascades and the rocky coastline has been captured beautifully. What a wonderful, wild and unspoilt place. Thanks for sharing.
