Photographer's Note

This is my recent attempt to photograph a waterfall with a longer exposition time to capture the flow of the water.

Last weekend we took a family trip to Teesdale, a place where the Tees River has its origins. High Force is the most popular and indeed the most impressive waterfall in this area. Sadly due to the pandemic, the access to it is limited. There is just a circular one-way hike allowed to a distant viewpoint but one cannot walk around the waterfall as before. This area has a lot of other beautiful spots. The second most popular is the Low Force which I will show you later. Quite recently I have heard about this place, the Summerhill Force (waterfall in this photo), it is a walking distance from the other two. Behind this lovely waterfall there is a tiny cave, which has a name (Gibson’s Cave) and a story to it. Supposedly an outlaw was hiding there from authorities. You can read more about it here:

Ironically, I have a very good colleague at work with that family name (Gibson).
The trail to this spot is very short and it starts from Bowlees Visitor Centre Car Park.

This is my first photo on TrekEarth taken with my new camera, Canon EOS 90D. Unfortunately I am still struggling with it. One of the problems which I have is that I got used to shoot photos directly to JPG format, using the in-camera processing. This has worked well for me. But the new generation camera has again changed settings in this respect (part of it is called “Picture Style”) and ironically, so far the photos from my new camera are much worse in quality from those taken with my old Canon EOS 550D. I will keep you updated.
