The Weir



Photo copyright of Maggie May.


This is Pulteney Weir in Bath, Somerset. It is a place I often go to and I never get tired of this lovely Roman city with it's beautiful buildings, waterways and natural hot water springs.
In this picture I was standing on a bridge looking down. On the left is a very unusual bridge that I will be posting about very soon.

Watery Wednesday is hosted by 2sweetnsaxy. For magnificent photos from all over the world, why not look her up?

Clicking my heels and closing my eyes . . . am I there yet? What a wonderful spot - looks very relaxing.

Sandi McBride said...

Ah yes, the beautiful Bath...I could easily have pulled up stakes in Bucks and moved to Bath! Bliss!

How funny - we are currently working on a large project at Weirs Beach Village in NH ! Same name yet so far apart! And this picture looks so refreshing - summer has finally arrived here - hot and very humid. I wish I could jump right into that water! Ahh...

Rose said...

Your photos just get better and better, Maggie May--this one is lovely. My only acquaintence with Bath is the Wife of Bath in the Canterbury Tales:)

Before I enlarged it I thought the water was flowing the other way.
This is lovely enlarged! I love the curve of the falls.

Thanks for your visit. :)

Maggie, your photography is just magnificent.

Jeni said...

Loved the photo you have here although I have to confess since this was the first time I have ever heard the word "Weir" that I had to do a Wikipedia search to find out what it is!
Yeah, so much for culture and knowledge, huh?

Bonnie Bonsai said...

Wow! That is so beautiful!

You did a great job in capturing it. I bet its not one you want to walk around in though. I would be that water is fast.

That's a lovely picture of the weir, especially as it excludes all the tourists!

Suburbia said...

PS. That sounds silly now I've re read it! Like the tourists are usually floating about in the water! Must be the school hols getting to me!

Regina said...

Wow. Beautiful capture!

Brian Miller said...

Bath is one of those places on my list that I haven't visited yet. Love the picture.

Tricia said...

It's always fun to see the world out there in others photos - This is a lovely shot!

Have a wonderful WW!

I'd love to be dabbling my feet in that!

San said...

Maggie, on this hot day here, it refreshes me to gaze at those beautiful waters.

Thank you for that.

Nice to see an old friend from a different perspective. It is unusual to see the weir from that angle.

Bim said...

A very interesting looking weir - I love Bath, but I don't think I've discovered a fraction of what there is to see.

Kirigalpoththa said...

That's an interesting spot. I would like it there too, I think.
