Sylvias Loc: North Yorkshire England
 
We ventured out to visit Wensleydale which is an area in the Yorkshire Dales National Park renowned for its famous cheese. Below are views of the surrounding area on an overcast day.

Cauldron Falls is set in woodland and gets its name from the churning plunge pool. Very dodgy underfoot with Bob acting as Sherpa and Bob the prop! The painter William Turner sketched here in the summer of 1816. Nearby was a working mill powered by a beck as it tumbled over the limestone rocks of the waterfall. It last functioned in the early twentieth century having been converted to generate the small village of West Burton in 1913. It wasn’t very efficient and autumn leaves often jammed the turbine. The National Grid arrived in 1948 and the mill fell silent. Today it is been turned into a residential property.

Canon 650D, 18-55 & Tamron 18-400mm lens.

A beautiful place, sylvia and the pics are magnificent as always. Love the amazing waterfall and the curious Llama, and what a pretty face she has!

Love them all Sylvie, and may I ask you your opinion, Now I have almost the same camera as you 600d with the kit lenses plus a 70x300, I love the 18x55, but get frustrated changing lenses, now, what do you think of the Tamron 18x400, as I feel that it would cover my needs, I come from Liverpool, but now live in New Zealand, been in NZ for around 22yrs, plus 28yrs in Aus, Regards Colin,

Once more, very nice and well photographed, Sylvia! I do have to tell you something and I am being very honest here; those photos of the waterfalls are probably some of the best that I have seen here, on UHH. The composition, lighting and the clarity are second to none.
