Top of Richmond Falls
This was taken somewhat later than the previous version as I made the return journey down from the castle. I couldn't be bothered to get the 5D out of the bag after the earlier fiasco so I took this with the little Ixus.

The first thing that struck me about this was the mix of colour. The quality from the Ixus is very good, although the 5D I think may have retained a little more detail, due to the high contrast of the subject.

That little Ixus has certainly done a fine job here Keith. Nice pov to catch the peaty water as it spills over the falls, lovely texture in the rocks and again a nice lush green backdrop, well done sir.

George has said it all. well done.

Can only echo George's very apt comments Keith, except to add there's some lovely cascades in the background, the ones I mentioned in your previous shot, a period of heavy rain would transform this scene, and I reckon a return visit would pay dividends, so get the waterproofs ready

I sometimes lug all my photographic stuff muttering under my breath about the weight of it all (I travel with the equivalent of a woman's handbag - everything you need plus loads of junk you don't
) when all it needs is a simple compact camera. This is case in point. Barrie's comment is fair but the IXUS has performed well. Why is there Yorkshire tea flowing down the valley though?
