Distance from Brimstone - 8 miles
Tips to get the shot - Tips to get the shot - A friend can definitely help with this one taking the photo from over your shoulder as it can be difficult to get your legs in the shot on your own unless you have one of the latest smartphones with an ultra wide camera.

the epic cave shot
Location - Cathedral Caves
Grid Reference - NY 314 028 / Google Map Directions
Distance from Brimstone - 4 miles
Tips to get the shot - Ask your model to leave the main cave and up the small, easy scramble that leads above the cave.

Grid Reference - NY 289 051 / Google Map Directions
Distance from Brimstone - 3 miles
Tips to get the shot - Capturing this at the start or end of the day will ensure best results with this photo, although as long as the sky is looking moody enough - you’ve got your shot. Wide and low is the way to go with this shot, ensuring your model breaks the horizon in order to fill the frame.
the waterfall shot
Location - Whorneyside Force
Grid Reference - NY 261 054 / Google Map Directions
Distance from Brimstone - 5 miles
Tips to get the shot - Even though the waterfall itself is wholly impressive, distance is the key with a shot like this in order to get the grandiose perspective that will get you all the double taps you could wish for. Stand around 100 yards away, up on the opposite bank facing straight on to the waterfall while your friend strikes different poses until you get the desired shot.
the quarry shot
Location - Hodge Close Quarry
Grid Reference - NY 317 017 / Google Map Directions
Distance from Brimstone - 6 miles
Tips to get the shot - This one takes some coordinating as both the photographer and model access the quarry at different points. The model must follow the path North towards the buildings keeping an eye out for a sign that states ‘Steep unfenced rockfaces, deep water’ this path leads down a rough but walkable path to the crane wreckage seen at the bottom of the photo, please take care not to go in the water or climb any uneven surfaces. The photographer should enter at the southern tip of the quarry, this has some slightly exposed areas and loose rock underfoot which are easily negotiated however caution is required.
PLEASE NOTE: This can be a dangerous location. Use only designated paths and follow all safety notices.
