Paper Mill Flow

By martinl  
Saturday morning saw me having a wander down the Rivelin Valley in Sheffield search of more autumny!! stuff.

This is Paper Mill Dam (or more accurately the weir from Paper Mill Dam). This was formerly one of the more industrialised areas of Sheffield, although you'd not think so now.

The Valley possesses 21 artificially created ponds, testament to the twenty mills which were once present on the river. Though most of the mills and forges no longer exist, the ponds which used to feed them do, thanks to the support of the Rivelin Valley Conservation Group (RVCG) and Yorkshire Water. (wikipedia)

A good bit of water movement and autumn(y) colours in the light too Wink
Excellent use of light and all. Almost looks too perfect to be real!
I know this place - I've looked at at many times and never got anything I liked. Something like this would have been nice!

Don't think it will eclipse Padley in the popularity stakes though!

Just somewhere different that I've not really had a go at before, but quite pleased with this one.
