Weir at Water cum Jolly -1

These three images were taken at a favourite place of mine – Water cum Jolly, near Bakewell in the Peak District. The weir was built to hold back the river to create a constant flow of water that drove the waterwheel of the nearby ‘factory’ during the time of the Industrial Revolution in England.

The images try to convey the force of the river and the shapes created by the interplay between the river and the weir, contrasting the energy and fluidity of the water against the solid stone buttress trying to support the weir and hold back the river.
