Rain, rain, rain

By Kaxxie
I said I should be building an ark! These images were taken earlier this week when we had a very brief spell of sunshine. I love trees and reflections so this is one of my favourite walking spots, Rivermead Island. However, my walk has been halved now as The Thames has begun to take over. We have had a lot of rain since I took this and more forecast for next week. We last had floods here around 8yrs ago. The whole of Rivermead Island was under water then and many houses were flooded. Thankfully we are a long way off that at the moment.

Iíve been experimenting on Snapseed with mono. I like them but not sure which are more effective the colour or the mono. Iím going to try to upload the colour & mono versions. At the moment Iím doing everything on my iPad so I hope the images donít look horrendous on a computer sized screen!

Thank you for the votes and comments on yesterdayís image ĎLife an the Rialtoí and Alan for your award. The more I look at the image the more it looks like the lady is floating. I was much lower down on the steps looking up at them. The way her costume billows out and my angle hides her feet. Now Iíve seen it that way I canít unsee it!

Keep safe out there everyone.

A well composed and taken image that is well suited to mono presentation, Karen.
Lovely tones and textures.

Never mind that, what about my garlic? It was coming on so well but garlic hates poorly drained soil and the bulbs rot. if it recovers I'll let you have some around late June.

An excellent set of images, Karen - thank you for displaying them.

I must confess that Mother Nature have given us eyes to see colour and your pictures have convinced me that she was very wise to do such.

Lovely set Karen. For me mono works very well.
( I wonder if they would have been any better with another camera; maybe like the NIKON you
Take care

Looks like you have had a LOT of rain, Karen. The color images are more descriptive....and I think your mono renderings are stronger photos. I like them a lot.
