Bath Weir, by Mat

Bath is arguably the most beautiful city in England, and central to it is the river Avon, and this stunning weir.

 

Ever since I got my 10 stop ND filter, I've been dying to do a long-exposure image of the weir, and today I drove 200 miles each way to do so!

 

I'm really pleased with the result. Here I've combined two 30 second exposures into a small panorama, to capture the whole of the weir. I love the way the long exposure emphasises the movement in the water.

 

I spent ages sitting up on the wall with my tripod, disturbed every now and then by tourists asking me to take photos of them with their camera phones!

 

This is the iconic view towards Pulteney Bridge
