Aira Force II by SkankinMike Aira Force II by SkankinMike
A return to an older shot.

Aira Force - Lake District, Cumbria

In old Norse "eyrara", meaning "gravel-bank stream or river", while the word force, from fors, is used in many parts of northern England as a synonym for "waterfall".

Wordsworth wrote:

Wild stream of Aira, hold thy course,
Nor fear memorial lays,
Where clouds that spread in solemn shade,
Are edged with golden rays!
Dear art thou to the light of heaven,
Though minister of sorrow;
Sweet is thy voice at pensive even.
And thou, in lovers' hearts forgiven,
Shalt take thy place with Yarrow.
