Comments: I had only seen Scale Force once many years ago so on this lovely warm and sunny afternoon we headed to Buttermere to take a look at one of the loveliest waterfalls in lakeland.
This is High Stile. The photo was taken on the way towards Buttermere.
A beautiful scene down by the lakeshore at Buttermere. Fleetwith Pike and Haystacks on the other side of the lake.
Towering Grasmoor beyond a very blue Crummock Water.
The two waterfalls that make up Scale Force. The smaller one in the foreground is about 20ft, and the one at the back is about 120ft.
The 120ft drop deep in a seemingly tropical ravine. A short scamble up to get a photo like this!
