Let the Water flow …

I’ve become fascinated with the effects if capturing the effects of water as seen by the camera.

Below are two shots of the same screen taken with different settings, with very different results:

Water Frozen

Stoggles in the Stream

Just downstream of Keepers Cottage there is a line of three old coppiced Tree stumps, known locally at Stoggles, that are now in the middle of the Stream

It seems unlikely these grew in the stream, hence perhaps the course of the stream has changed over the years, widened, and worn away round the back of the Stoggles

The upstream Stoggle forms an arch, and is thought locally to have perhaps been an old bridge foundation?
