Making waves

Not the sea but the roaring, tumbling waters of the River Aire rushing over the weir in Saltaire's Roberts Park. There is plenty of water in the river at present. It is keeping within the water course but the currents are tremendous and the weirs are exciting. I watched two mallards plunging right into the fray and couldn't tell whether they were doing it for fun and enjoying it or whether they'd made a mistake! The power of the water must be quite strong even for a duck. 

Such foaming waters made me want to take photos and I spent a happy few minutes watching the patterns the waves made.
