photoblog image Sour Milk Ghyll

Sour Milk Ghyll

A lovely, warm walk along Easedale Beck up from Grasmere

takes us between Ecton and Brinhow Crags.  Half way up the

short climb is Sour Milk Ghyll - so named for the milky appearance

of the water. Not sure why they've decided it's sour...

The waterfall flows into a little pool of cool, clear water,

before continuing down the steepish hill to Grasmere.

Playing around with shutter speeds- I'm not entirely pleased

with this photo... the water is a little too silky, and a bit blown out.

But I've decided it's the best of the bunch, so there you go!

 

The Lake District

Northern England

 

 

I will be without my computer for a while...

I apologize that I won't be able to look in on

ShutterChance until it comes back from the

shop.  It's got one more chance...

Seems like a lovely thing to give you a breather at the halfway point, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Exactly what I thought! I stepped off the trail and wondered around looking for watery stone shots! smile
Wonderfully shot with this slow shutter speed Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much, Richard! I was hoping it would work out alright!

Well you've certainly made it look attractively milky here Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I'm so glad you think so, Chris! Thank you!
Wonderfully captured waterfall, conveying movement Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Chad! I'm so glad you like it... it's hard to know how to capture water sometimes. As a desert dweller, I don't have a lot of experience! smile

That is so beautiful, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Pauline! You would love this walk, I think!
I love the little falls on the left side. Really nice shot with perfect composition.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh thank you so much, Mary! I wasn't sure about it - you know after you stare at an image long enough you stop being objective.
i like what you have done here, Elizabeth and it is a terrific image.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks so much, Ayush! I'm glad you approve!
I'm enjoying this tour round the Lake District with such a knowledgeable American guide.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I enjoy looking up where I've been and what I've seen! So if Frank doesn't know, Google usually does!
Ah, good memories, Elizabeth, so nice to share these places with you, instead of just sweating my way up there alone...smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: You've given me so many wonderful memories, My Love!
Everything's better together! smile
I didn't know shutterchance was at the shop.......
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I didn't do very well with my grammar... smile
I quite like it - much better than gthe usual "frozen water" shots one sees. And - switch to the Mac and you'll never look back!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh thank you, Tom! I'm so pleased you approve!
Frank has a Mac... but I just can't imagine having the time to re-learn everything... I know and understand Windows... and really like how it all works. Just gotta keep the hardware going! smile

It's a fine view of the gyhll. Did you go on to Sergeant Man? The walk gets much steeper once you've left the tarn.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Frank mentioned that... the steepness beyond... but we didn't go that far that day, we hadn't planned to go as far as we did and didn't have much water or food with us. We had just made this stop on the way home to Blackpool.
