Cardiff barrage sluice gates
Take on the weekend of the 8th Feb 2014, luckily we don't have any flooding in Cardiff due to the flood prevention work done in the 1980 on the river Taff, this photo is showing the sluice gates at full flow expelling the water from the rivers Taff and Ely, the tide was coming in so there was lots of turbulence as the two flows meet.

And you've caught the turbulence perfectly Steve, wouldn't want to fall in there
I like the overall tone to this shot ( good choice of filter) it really does set the scene, moody and powerful.
Like it loads, well done that Man.

A smashing action shot Steve and the bigger image size really does it justice. Unfortunately though it also makes the slight tilt more obvious, all those vertical poles show that a fraction under one degree acw rotation is needed to get it all in back in kilter (sorry, it's just one of my little foibles ). Nonetheless it is a powerful shot and one can almost hear the roar of the water. Well done sir!

I like the turbulence you've captured; it really gives a feel for the different currents. Keith is spot on about the very slight tilt to this. Glad the flood defences are holding up. I sometimes wonder if they merely push the problem elsewhere, though (but that's fine if that is the least problematic).

A smashing shot Steve. I can almost feel that I am standing there watching the roaring of the water at full flow, a bit scary I think. Well taken
