In full flood
Another shot of the weir by Saltaire's New Mill. You can fully appreciate the amount of rain we've had when you see how fierce the flow of water over the weir is (and how a hydro-electric plant here might make sense, to harness all that power). I found watching the water was utterly mesmerising, like watching waves on the sea - and the noise was deafening. Isn't nature amazing? Though we so often wish for the exact opposite of what is happening with the weather.... and different parts of the world seem to have swapped their weather patterns just lately.
For a comparison with the more usual view at this spot, see this:
