We left my home town of Rochester to visit the grimily named town of Gravesend, but although grimily named, some parts are actually quite beautiful, and the town is steeped in history. A we left Rochester the sunning was out, it was glorious, however as we were nearing Gravesend the clouds were beginning to form over the Thames Estuary. "Don't worry" my support walker said, it will soon blow over. When we finally arrived the sky was grim, and their was a very slight drizzle. However we both decided that the promenade area was the most convenient place to park the car, get me into my chair, attach my bag full of gear and head off to capture one or two images. After approximately five minutes I managed to capture a few photographs of the old Kent barges which can usually be found moored up along the banks of the estuary. A few other shots of the piers were captured, just before the heavens opened. Mt Support worker quickly got me into the car whilst he frantically managed to get my chair and camera bag into the boot of his 'Chelsea Tractor'. Just as we were pulling away to head of home, I managed to capture a multiple burst of images through the open car window of the scene you see before you. Once home and dry, I downloaded all twenty or so images, and set about to convert the last five to HDR. I opted to give the said images the HDR effect just to bring out the colour and detail hidden under the watery deluge.
