    A spectacular waterfall where two rivers converge at the meeting point of three counties, or shires (Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire).

    Three Shires Head, a cracking view after a very sweaty (and could have been shorter) walk. The weather was better than expected though. As always swwms to be the case, Sod's Law was determined to strike again - for this shot I had ordered;



    Haida 52mm Slim ND3 filter for just £26.99 - at that price I was dubious over quality but needn't have worried.

    Remote shutter

    Tripod baseplate (in the bottom of sold 7D :picard:)



    The Haida had arrived but the other two did not, but guess what was awaiting me when I returned home this evening from the postman? Grrr, return trip being planned in Autumn. Here is one more showing the wide view.

    Both of them are. What impressed me with the slim 52mm is I can mount the Cokin P series and add more ND (and hideous colour cast) and it doesn't cause vignetting even at 9mm.

    All I want is sun for 1/800th second, do you think I can get it?

    I like 'em!
    Shame you didn't also have a ladder with you to get a more contextual picture of the two streams coming down, like a higher view of Number2.
    Number1 is the best for me, nice.

    The camera was balanced at floor level on a rock, had I got the baseplate and remote in time it would have been taken from around 1.5m higher.
