Middle Black Clough Waterfall in the Peak District is an amazing location for long exposure photography. And with interesting streams leading up to the falls, there are plenty of photo opportunities that could easily keep you busy for a day. The main falls themselves are in a small area, so you’ll need a wide-angle lens to fit everything in. Something like a 16-35mm on full-frame and 10-20mm on APS-C cameras is perfect.
The GoPro Hero 4 Silver has a number of great features that make it attractive to photographers, film makers and anyone who would like a small and tough camera capable of being attached to almost anything.
