Cotter Force, North Yorkshire, UK

Like Hardraw Force, this waterfall is close to Hawes in North Yorkshire but it is much less well known, and no entry fee is needed! It is reached by an obscure but prepared footpath from near to a lay-by (SD849915). From the lay-by head back across the bridge over the stream where there is a partially obscured footpath sign indicating the route.

At this waterfall, there was an even larger problem with the contrast between the sunlight parts of this scene and the much darker shady areas. As with the Hardraw Force image, my approach was to combine two photos taken with different exposures in PhotoShop. In this case, there was a 3 stop difference in these two photos!
