  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    I think you are going to struggle to find any local!! Lincs is pretty flat!
    I think you will find some in Country Parks/Estates/Gardens though.\With a bit of creative positioning/cropping you can make them look natural enough!

    I'll have to pass for the moment i think :LOL: yes it's very flat, plenty of Drains and Dykes that lay stagnant here, it's difficult enough trying to get one at the exact same angle as a setting sun for effect.

    About 56 miles away to Lumsdale near Matlock is probably the nearest ones i've been to, other than that i visit the Yorkshire Dales a few times a year for most of my waterfall photos.

    You can view the location an google maps here. Just turn on photos and you will see some shots of the waterfalls.

    It's a nice little walk along the river and there are a few old mills to photograph too.

    A waterfall worth going to is Higest Waterfall in Wales i went there a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed it, make sure you take some insect repellent as the wife got some real bad bites.

    Not that far really from East Midlands if you go up through Stoke.

    I am sorry for stealing the thread. Is there any natural waterfall in (or close to) Bristol?

    Here's a handy trick. Go on flickr.com, find the world map, zoom to the region you want then search for a tag, ie. Waterfall.

    Bare in mind there's no guarentee that photos will be placed on the map anywhere near accurately, but it'll give you something to work from.
    Looks like you have a bit of a drive...
