Locations in Essex

Hi. I live in Essex and am looking for locations for taking landscape photographs and particularly those with either fast flowing water or a weir / water fall.

Any recommended websites for finding locations would be be appreciated.

Re: Locations in Essex

The lack of any substantial hills (highest point is under 500 feet!) makes it challenging for water to pick up any speed - unless it's tipping down with rain! But I guess there must be somewhere......

Re: Locations in Essex

Hi Russell , my father in law lives in Essex, he mentioned a search of flickr would yield results and locations. I had a look and some of the more memorable are: The River Colne weir by Colchester's Castle Park, also there is a small weir in the Chelmer Valley nature reserve to the north of Chelmsford town centre and finally a little closer to me Dobbs Wier in between Harlow and Herts.

Hope this helps.

Mims

Re: Locations in Essex

Thanks Barry, went to Beeleigh Waters today an took loads of pics (posted one in monochrome). The one thing I should have invested in was a set of ND filters so I could use a really slow shutter speed and freeze the water. Very happy with the results and put into practice some theory about exposures. Mims, I will try your locations soon, regards
