Lumb Falls by wandereringsoul Lumb Falls by wandereringsoul
In the area of Yorkshire known as Calderdale near the town of Hebdon Bridge lies the valley of Crimsworth Dean along which flows Crimswoth Beck ( beck meaning stream ). The area has been declared as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The bed and banks of Crimsworth Dean Beck provide exposures of a series of rock-layers of the Namurian Series formed during the Carboniferous Period of geological history about 320 million years ago. The rocks consist mainly of shale's and sandstones formed by the accumulation of sediment on a vast delta, built by a major river which flowed southwards from uplands in Scotland.
A walk along the beck from Hardcastle Crags brings you to an interesting water fall known as Lump Falls

I can envision a young King Arthur being knighted here or perhaps retrieving Excalibur, either way it seems a setting bursting with magic and imagination, beautifully captured but undisturbed

Thanks for the comment. It is one of those places tucked away and needs walking some distance to get to.
As for King Arthur there are many places to be said where he was born, or where he died or where he is buried or where  he encounted the lady of the lake.

It is a great place for photographers having been here myself and you have captured it beautifully.There does seem to be a magenta cast though.Was this a very long exposure?
