John... that is a feast for the eyes...lovely.
Beautiful John, great camera work...well done.
What a beautiful shot..
Whelley Waterfalls - a hidden gem!
Can't dispute that this is an excellent photo John, however I am still not sure whether or not I like this 'milky' effect in photos. Jury still out on this!
The water dosent look real, it looks like somebody upstream as pored a bucket of whitewash in it.
Something so beautiful in our own back yard. Wonderful shot John.
Nice one one John, Can't make out whether it's the falls near to the path, or the falls higher up near the sough. H.
Anybody any photos of the Fairy Glen in Wigan Plantations, I am sure a lot of people would like to see.
Reply to Harry C, Its the fall higher up near the slough. Thanks to all for your comments
There is at least one photograph of the Fairy Glen on this site.
Barry look on 4/3/2010 for Fairy Glen. H.
To Harry C,
Thanks Harry, You know your way around well, Barry.
Just like to know how clean is this water, would it be drinkable or is it polluted with farmers pesticides, one time on a hot summers day when choking for a drink i came across a stream like this but was advised not to drink the water,
This water is the outfall from a series of sedimentation ponds. These were constructed some years ago to allow the iron oxide in the minewater from the Great Haigh Sough to precipitate out and stop the pollution of the Douglas. The sough water drains into a specially constructed sump from where it is pumped back uphill to the ponds. Amazing to think that Sir Richard Bradshaigh contructed the first section to Park Pit between 1653 - 1670.
