Behind The Lens

Location
This is quite a tricky waterfall to find it would be quite easy to drive past it without realizing, In the Yorkshire Dales if you head out of Settle on High Hill Lane heading towards Malham for approximately a mile Located roughly 1 mile from the outskirts of Settle heading along High Hill Lane toward Malham. Make sure you keep right at the fork in the road and look out for a small coppice of trees on the left hand side of the road which mark the falls, they appear shortly before a steep dip in the road. It's easily accessed by car, though there's minimal parking, which is limited to parking on the roadside verge where you can but once out the car you can hear the tumbling waterfall. A style leads you over a drystone wall and onto a short (but very steep!) descent down rocky steps to the base of the waterfall. Getting near the falls requires a short scramble up the weir like cascades from the end of the footpath.
Time
it was about a three hour journey to get to these falls so I decided to break the journey up by stopping at Harden first to photograph Goit Stock Falls on the way so i arrived at scaleber falls by about two o'clock in the afternoon
Lighting
it was quite a dull day so ideal for shooting waterfalls
Equipment
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, tripod, cable release, two stop nd filter and Circular polariser
Inspiration
I had seen many photographs of this spectacular waterfall and just wanted to add it to my portfolio
Editing
I always import to lightroom to make minor adjustments to highlights, shadows, blacks and whites then go to the tone curv section and drag the curve to a slight "s" shape before going to lense corrections where I just click the boxes for enable profile correction and remove chromatic abberation then I export to PS to clone out any dust bunnies then I usually adjust levels and sharpen using high pass and thats it
In my camera bag
Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 7D, EF17-40mm f/4L USM, EF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM Lens, 0.3, 0.6 x2, 0.9 x2 hard graduated Lee filters, 0.6 ND filter, Big Stopper, Little Stopper, Circular polariser, landscape circular polariser, manual white balance card, misc cleaning products
Feedback
I had never been to this location before so I googled Scaleber falls to find any directions then checked google maps in satelite view to check for parking so I knew exactly where I was going on the day
