Waterfalls

Waterfalls - a photographic journey

Waterfalls are the result of a simple combination of liquid and gravity but that hardly describes their awe-inspiring beauty.

If the journey of a river can be taken as a metaphor for the journey of a life, then waterfalls represent its most dramatic and intense episodes. For the photographer, stalking the countryside in order to capture images, waterfalls stand out as areas of energetic drama in contrast to the otherwise tranquil landscape that surrounds them.

It is easy to see how the worlds largest waterfalls have become international tourist attractions but even the smallest ones make us aware of the true power of the natural world and the forces of nature that affect us all.

I hope you enjoy these images of waterfalls, which were all taken at various locations in the British Isles.
