Pure Gold by DrewHopper Pure Gold by DrewHopper
This is by far my favourite place to shoot, nestled away from the world. I'm seriously starting to think that I am the only person to have shot these falls. It makes it special to me, I mean after all it's a magical place.

Anyway this was taken on sunset, you get such beautiful light through the valley. It's quite amazing how rocky the landscape is, most of it is just farm land, but it's these hidden gems which show off the raw beauty of the landscape. I will be visiting again soon.

I prefered the last shot of this place, this stream with le waterfall looks pretty nice but without the other waterfall and the trees it loses a part of its beauty..<3

Superb lighting. I am very biased towards warm tones, it just makes this scene look like a secret place in heaven.

The light in the reflections is amazing! Was this shot the same day as Chamber of Secrets or did you get permission to go back?

Yeah same day as 'Chamber of Secrets' I am building up the strength to go back, after getting chased by mad cows and then reading a 'trespassers will be shot' sign, gotta amp myself up for it :)
