    Hi Rob

    This is an intriguing shot, I can't quite make out what the shooting conditions were. Some sort of cave perhaps ? Interesting effect of lighting on the water which has a stringy look to it. What settings did you use ?

    Cheers Dave

    With some cropping at the bottom it looks more like snow white hair than water.

    Here is the EXIF http://www.flickr.com/photos/carregw...n/photostream/

    and here is the location (you can zoom out) http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=50.63972807833467~-4.112197157975386&lvl=13&dir=0&sty=s&cid=524D7547C 805D849!131&eo=0&where1=Chagford%2C%20Devon&form=L MLTCC

    The location is Lydford Gorge in Devon, and it's great for photography. It's a Victorian waterfall tourist spot, which has some rather spectacular falls on a circuit walk. For this shot (a narrow gorge with the water forced through) I wanted a long exposure to freeze the water. But I didn't have a tripod with me, so I had to hand-hold it at 0.6sec. I placed the camera on a railing that overlooked the water (with my neck strap on) and just held it firmly while it exposed. I was deliberately going for a surreal look. Maybe I was thinking of Sherlock Holmes and his death at the Reichenbach Falls.
