Weirs, waterfalls and overflows

I've spent a huge amount of time, right back to my childhood around water, mostly fishing. I still find myself gravitating to water now with the camera.
So just sticking a few in one place (some you may have seen already elsewhere), which i will add to as I go along.

Please feel free to add your own, if its worthy of a communal thread...

Middle Black Clough

I'll be revisiting this location soon as conditions prevented me reaching the main 10m falls, plus there are the adjacent Near and Far Black Cloughs to do too.
I did capture these 2 sections lower down though. The big falls can be seen in the background of this first shot



and a little further down stream ..

A great idea for a thread Chris, with some nice images. The shot of the Ladybower Plughole shows the awe inspiring engineering and is more than a little scary.

Thanks Ron, the "plugholes" are amazing to see, the amount of water going down them is mind boggling! That one was a difficult shot to capture too, to get that viewpoint I was on a ledge, up a wet steep bank, clinging onto a tree!

this is a more traditional angle

Lovely weir shot Alf, and yes that's definitely a waterfall
Between the sea and the lakes sounds just about a perfect location to me, I am a tad envious, although I do love it here in Yorkshire (my heart lies in Cornwall though)

I like the striped effect you’ve captured there... I think there’s an interesting minimalist crop to be had there too

Feel free to do the crop I am not artistic and would like to see what is possible.
