Gorgeous spring green foliage contrasting well with the grey/blue of the water, and a well balanced composition. Theolfa
Barnard Castle and the upper Tees valley presents a dramatic landscape with many falls and rapids and I shall be back soon with the camera. I am glad you liked the photo, Theolfa.
Extreme Left of shot is where the watermill was that I mentioned Keith. Taking the road past this point would lead you, eventually, to Cotherstone, then Left over the Moors to North Gill farm, I fear now derelict, but what a happy place it was to be in the days I lived there for a two-week stay each year.
Cheers, my friend
The close up shot of the sluice gears, the bricked-exit of the mill race and the base of the chimney are all that remain of the mill. There was a plaque on the chimney base telling how the mill used to be the largest employer in Barny (this would be before the pharma company arrived).
