Nightscape photography - Shooting a waterfall

I had an idea about photographing a waterfall at night and found that Waterfall Swallet, near Eyam in Derbyshire was the closest "big proper" waterfall to me.

It was a bit tricky (as these things tend to be!) but I got a few shots that I'm happy with.

Here's a couple of the shots I got after running around in the cold and mud firing my flash and doing some light painting:

The sky was so beautiful, there were so many stars - not seen so many since Ben Nevis. I had to make a bit more use of that!

And a couple of bonus long exposure shots I took on the way home of the Longshaw Wooden Pole and Carl Wark at night - both of which I've not seen many, if any, of online:
