Just another sodden day...

By NDODS    
This rather quirky image was captured during a rather wet and windy spring day, whilst visiting Maidstone. I captured this feral pigeon looking as miserable as I felt, walking along the riverside, just underneath the Tunbridge Road Bridge which crosses over the River Medway in the centre of Maidstone. My support worker wasn't to pleased to be out in the rain, let alone keeping a very close eye on me, just in case I decided to take the plunge. However I hope you all like.

Thank you to all of those people who so kindly viewed and commented on my Silly Sunday Snap Shot, so very interesting and certainly worthwhile comments.

Hope you all have a great day, if the weather stays nice I shall be popping out with my support worker after visiting my GP at 11am.

Regards Nathan

A very interesting picture! Drops of rain on the glass ... How I miss the rain ... During this summer we saw a small rain only twice ...

amazing image realy like what you have done here very artistic
Do you know we get more rain than you do in England.
We also love every drop of it. As it makes or breaks the season.
But you have captured some very nice drops here. With good composition
and colour. Well done Nathan. WesternRed.

Excellent spot, Nathan. I may have just cropped in a bit, taking a quarter off the right and bottom which removes distractions and leaves the pigeon in the bottom right with lots of lovely negative space. Just a thought. Hope your day goes well.

Wonderful image, a great capture Nathan, the raindrops on the glass and colours almost make the pigeon superflous, nice processing as well.
Nice one.
