Betws_y_Coed North Wales.A bit disappointed in that I was unable to get a better shot of the falls, due to the fact that everywhere was fenced off. You just had no choice but to take your shot at the viewing platform.

What a wonderful location, and image. I almost prefer it without the sky, and wonder what it would look like zoomed in tighter.

Beautiful looking waterfall. The days of free access is over, I think. Many of the falls in my area (Hamilton ON) have been fenced off providing no access. Too many selfie collectors ruining it for everyone.

Lovely image despite your struggles. Thankfully you had a workable sky as I like the touch of blue amongst the clouds. The rapids coming right at you lead nicely to the falls.
I feel your pain. We have some great falls in our area but the viewing areas have been allowed to overgrow obscuring a photogenic downward composition.

Yes, I found it disappointing there too, Peter - but you got a lovely shot here with the autumn colours.

Great image. I agree with Peter. Looks really great without the sky.
