Goit Stock Waterfall In Winter

Another day and another lockdown walk, this time back to and old favourite Goit Stock Wood and Falls. The path and road up as far as the Holiday Home Park were very slippy in places but I managed to navigate them fairly easily. From there onwards, the tree cover had kept most of the ice at bay even though there were still a fair amount of icicles on the rocks in the beck.

Surprisingly it was very quiet, I only came across two people on my walk in and then two taking photos up at the falls. There was just about the right amount of water flowing over the falls to facilitate good slow shutter speed photos, but the layout of the falls makes it hard to get a good composition. Over the years a tree has grown at exactly the place you would want to place your tripod. If you move further to the left then a large rock blocks out part of the view and the beck is to the right, so the only alternative would be to don some wellies and wade out in to the beck itself. 

That wasn't an option as I was only wearing a pair of low quality walking boots but I still think I managed to make the most of the options given to me. All in all it had been a very enjoyable visit and I had come away with some decent shots.
