Photographer's Note

High Force is one of the largest waterfalls in England, located on the upper reaches of the river Tees it can be seen from either the south bank of the river, as here, or from the north bank as is more usual. To reach this particular vantage point an envigorating walk must be taken along the river taking about an hour to reach. It is however well worth the effort as the route is along the Penine Way through some wonderful scenery and you also pass the less famous Low Force at Bowlees.

This photograph was taken after a period of considerable rainfall and the river is very high. Most photographs you see of High Force will only have water flowing over the left hand cataract (as we look here). To see water in such abundance over the fall is uncommon since the construction of Cow Green reservoir in the High Tees valley (completed 1971)

Not much post production trickery here, I've darkened the sky slightly and tweaked the colour up a touch but otherwise pretty much as the shutter went beep.
