A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by a photographer, Jenifer Bunnett, based in Surrey who had found me on the internet and suggested we might go out on photo safaris together. We met up for a coffee and a chat and found we hit it off. Jen is a super photographer whose interests are similar to mine. On Tuesday we had our first adventure together. I have already posted my shots of fungi from the woods around Friday Street in the Surrey Hills. However, our main quarry was this waterfall, something Jenifer had read about but hadn’t yet found. It seemed to be something of a secret, mentioned mysteriously on the internet but without directions. It turned out, to my surprise, that I had been there, several years ago, on a family hike. Surrey isn’t known for its waterfalls, but this one is pretty and tranquil – we had it to ourselves. Although most of the trees around it are laurel, and so evergreen, we did notice a few birches so a return visit in a couple of weeks is very much on the cards.
If you are interested, do visit Jen’s website and/or her Facebook page.
Lovely shot. The streaks on the water’s surface are an interesting effect.
Thanks. Yes, they were bubbles from the falls circulating (plus a leaf or two) – the long exposure turned them into streaks. I’m hoping there might be more fallen leaves in the pond next time.
Beautiful and tranquil indeed. Sounds like the perfect adventure with a payoff at the end.
What an unusual shot, getting a reflection of a waterfall. It’s a gorgeous scene.
Great sense of movement as well as a real sense of calm here. Lovely photo!
Great you’ve found a way to make photography less lonesome! And a secret waterfall – hope it stays that way! It’s not like the ones I’ve seen over here, that’s for sure – where are the floating ramen containers and disposable chopsticks?!
Lovely capture! 🙂
fantastic shot…..where abouts in surrey is this?? it really is stunning!!
It is near the village of Friday Street. I am sorry I don’t have co-ordinates for it.
