Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall

I couple of weeks ago I visited Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall in Powys in Wales. It was a great morning out and I really enjoyed the new challenge of photographing a waterfall.

At 240 ft (74 metres) tall, it's the highest waterfall in Wales & England. Here are some photos I took whilst at the waterfall. Although it is the highest waterfall in Wales and England I decided to focus just on the pools at the base of the waterfall as they gave me something to focus on, on such tall waterfall.

A portrait photo of the Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall. In this photo I cropped it, boosted the contrast, adjusted the hue and saturation to bring out the greens and yellows and sharpened it a little to bring out the detail on the rocks.

Another portrait photo of the Pistyll Rhaeadr Watrerfall. Again I cropped it increased the contrast a bit, adjusted the hue and saturation to bring out the greens + yellows and sharpened it to bring out the detail on the rocks.

So what do you think? Have you ever visited Pistyll Rhaeadr waterfall?

Just happened across your post and wanted to compliment you on your picture of Pistyll Rhaeadr.

I visted the falls earlier this year, what a great location. Shame my picture turned out nothing like yours.

Well done.
