Jealous as hell!

I took a similar photograph of the same waterfall about 3 years ago and I tried to get that ghostly effect with the water... yours is much better!

A lovely shot.

Hi Phil, Get off the bus at the Alex pub. [pub will be on your right coming from Wigan]. Directly opposite the pub you see a school walk threw the gates, school on your left. Keep on walking you will come to some trees then the waterfall. Sorry for delay been busy for a while
