One place that had been on my list for a while is Aysgarth Falls. Yesterday, I finally made it there, and enjoyed every minute of it.
I will not now bore you with the dry facts about this beautiful (and anything but dry) place; I'll leave that for when I am back home in Germany with full access to the photos I have been taking with my camera.
In the meantime, you'll get to see only those pictures my sister or other people have taken with their mobile phones and sent to me.
This is me (well, you never...!) in front of the river Ure at Aysgarth Falls. My Aunt J took this picture.
My sister took this video with her mobile phone on my request. I think there is something hypnotic about the slow motion of the water. (The first few seconds are real time motion and real sound.)
