  1. Wow thank you, you have done a tremendous amount of work on this blogg. I have added to my favourites bars, need to learn how to shoot waterfalls have no excuse now that I do know where to go. Thanks again and thank you for sharing.

    1. Thanks Gail, sorry for the late reply, If you want to join us and "learn" ;-) See Facebook "Yorkshire Photography and Meetup Group "

  2. A wonderful resource you've put together Andy. I love to shoot waterfalls also and your guides are becoming the go to list for prospective shoots.

    I've put a blog post up on my own site as I'm sure many of my fellow photographers would find your site very useful.

    Many Thanks
    Gary Turner,

  3. Thanks very much Gary, I'm glad you appreciate them, and I will continue to add to as I get "there" LOL> If you have any comments on individual post please feel free :-)
