Thornton Force

I last visited Thornton Force several years ago, whilst the river was running at low summer levels.
Today, the volume of water thundering over the falls was impressive...
...but meant I was unable to get the shots I would have liked. Moving downstream a little provided a different shot, the smaller cascades better suited to long exposures.
The falls lie hidden in the folds of the dales beneath Ingleborough...
...snow melt adding to the run off after a night of heavy rain.
An impressive spot, best visited late in the day if solitude is what you are seeking.
