"In Spate"

By RonnieAG
After yesterday's rains I visited Pollok Country park and noticed the sun was finding breaks in the overcast: the White Cart Water is quite evidenced by the flow over the weir.
The stump of an old beech tree collapsed last winter and lies on the far bank beyond the weir.

My thanks to all for their support of On Fire and with special thanks to Andy {andylea}, Dougie {Scottishlandscapes}, Pam {mashwood10} and John {lifesnapper} for their User Awards which are treasured.

oh what a lush green to complement the swollen river and the dramatic sky. I like the inclusion of the water level gauge.
Which is a complete list of what we lack now at 38ºC. I dread to see my flowers every day, can only dream of waters like yours.

Composition superb on this Ronnie, the swirling water makes excellent foreground interest and enough detail also in the sky, top shot.

The sky looks very ominous, Ronnie, is it about to add to the rush of water going over the weir? Well composed and captured. Carol

As usual a very well composed image Ronnie and with that very overcast sky will always provide a memory of what 2012 has thrown at us!

Another well-thought out composition, Ronnie. The bulk of the trees on the right balances the building on the left with the river flowing diagonally left to right between them. The white water contrast so well with the grey sky, and the water level indicator gives an excellent point of foreground interest.

In amongst all that rushing water a lone little pink flower is surviving
against the wall beautifully composed and lovely image Ronnie
This is so atmospheric that I can almost hear the rush of the water and feel that dark sky overhead. Fabulous Ronnie.GrinGrin

The river is quite high here as it's nears it's journey to the clyde. Lovely sparkles and a fine feeling of the sun through the grey black clouds.

Great capture of the water in full flow, Ronnie, and judging by that ominous sky, looks like more water on it's way! Wink

The house to the left has often been featured at our C.C.with the weir.
Looks good in full spate. Think there were a lot of fallen branches about when we visited the park in April.
Interesting to see the guage and a good sky.
18 Aug 2012 11:25AM
The guage is the key element for me, Ronnie. Power of nature v mankind etc. find image.

A beautiful well captured scene Ronnie, lots of colour, tones and movement. Really like the composition, the river leading in and out of the picture gives a feelling of depth.
Nice one.

I hope they do not remove the fallen tree Ronnie.
It could develop into a landmark for PCP as ''Old Stumpy'' !!
Good shot.

Looks a bit scary..not sure if there is more rain or not when I see the dark sky... you saw sun lightGrin
Tha colour and composition are beautiful..
19 Aug 2012 6:04PM
I like your composition here. The elements combine to create drama - the moody sky, the full river and the suggestion that the water level is about to increase further.
