Weir flow


A dull sky allowed me to slow the shutter speed down enough to give a soft blur on the water flowing over Hirst Weir.  I love all the greys in this image too. Compared to a photo I took in 2009 (see here), you can see what a lot of damage has been caused to the weir in recent times by the floods.

  1. Nice shot, jennyfreckles, and quite a contrast to the 2009 photograph. Did you use a tripod on this occasion?

    1. No tripod but only because there's a handy fence post. You can't really hand-hold a shot like this.

  5. I see what you mean Jenny, the river looks a lot fuller this year compared to back then..There's no possibility of floods this year is there? Love the dreamy effect on the water, you are pretty clever with that lens of yours!
