Fallen – The old slate mines in mid-Wales are a real draw when it comes to photography, especially where there has been a collapse and nature is allowed to take over. This image is from one of my favourite spots at Bryn Eglwys quarry, Eryri (Snowdonia), Mid-Wales. Taken with a Nikon 80mm – 400mm lens producing a three-frame pano of the base of the falls. Normally the waterfall would be too powerful to go into the collapsed chamber for a long exposure image, and the lens front would soon be covered by the spray making any image look soft. But with this year's winter drought, it’s been possible to get close with a 400mm lens!

Nikon D850 - 80.0-400.0 mm f/4.5-5.6 - ƒ/16.0 - 400.0 mm - 3 Sec - 64 ISO
