The River Gelt in Cumbria is a little sandstone lined treasure trove of a location. Deep channels, waterfalls, ravines, woodland, it's stunning....here's a couple from Saturday evening....

Yes
No1 does not go easy on my eyes because the very large log is too dominant.
No2 has very appealing sweeping lines (esp. within the rock formation). I enjoy studying that shot.

Love the second shot cracking couple of images!
No 2 works for me.
Thank you folks :)

Thank you Doug. I somewhat agree about the tree, and had it not been a full blown tree, the way across the water and the sandstone more slippy than ice, I'd have had a shot at moving it for my photos. :)

A place I remember as a child as my parents had a caravan in a farmers field near Talkin village. I will have to return now:) with my camera, second for me without the bottom third, to give a square crop.

For me I prefer 1 with the big log.

The problem with 2 is the river seems more to the right and it’s all a bit unbalanced
Cheers mate :)

Thank you. Interesting idea on the crop, I like it! Well worth a visit, especially just now with such low water levels :)
