I spent a very pleasant day out over the week in the Brecon national park area of Wales. Our particular interest for the day was to be waterfalls (that and trying not to tumble down near vertical rock faces with a ton of camera gear).

Anyway, this is the first of the better images I got during ther day. This particular fall is about 35ft high and the rock 'step' is entirely natural.

Shot on a Nikon D70s, 18-70mm kit lens at 18mm, F22, 1/6 second, raw format. Post processing consisted of minor colour temperature change, lightening of the shadow at the bottom of the frame (I was under a tree to avoid the spray!) and a bit of a contrast curve with USM.

I know Brecon and the Beacons very well, having lived just down the road for a few years. This is an astounding shot. I hope to get back to the old stomping ground soon with my camera. The landscape really is breathtaking.

Have you done the "fan dance". The climb up Mount Penyfan is quite a treck, but certainly worth it for the views.

One of my favourite places is Hay-on-Wye. Used to canoe the Wye a lot.

You have done a really good job here. When I read F22 I thought there was going to be alot of diffraction, but it doesn't appear to badly. Well done.
