Waterlogged

I liked the comment from Ruth's dad. The wettest drought we've ever had!

Infrared black and white so its gone a bit surreal. But I quite liked the effect.
Superb! +Fav

love ti! it does look a bit surreal but it adds so much to the drama! love it!
posted June 11th, 2012  
beautiful reflections and sky - and yes, I'm in what's still drought area and the streams and ponds are winter full - really doesn't look very drought like to me, and it's damn cold
posted June 11th, 2012  
Why oh why did they declare a drought - we all knew this would happen! Fantastic shot!
posted June 11th, 2012  
Wonderful composition with this dead tree, the reflection, and this dramatic sky! Pictures like this make me want a wide angle lens! :-)
posted June 11th, 2012  
Nice craggy tree. :)

@shadowdancer treat yourself. They're only cheap ;-)
posted June 11th, 2012  
All kinds of good stuff going on here! ELT and cloud reflections and broken down fence... And I like the tuft of grass in the foreground.

@fueast : Just got my new tele lens, so this one will have to wait. But I hope one day... :-)
posted June 11th, 2012  
Ooooh, I like it, too! A fav! Great tree with an excellent reflection. I love me some lone tree!

@shadowdancer Mine was meant to be for Christmas but then a few hard weeks at work persuaded me I deserved one sooner :-0 Your new tele lens was worth the money though!
posted June 11th, 2012  
@amandalomonaco Have you checked out the elt tag? Have you shot one you can tag?
posted June 11th, 2012  
@fueast : Yes, I like my new tele lens. BTW, it was also meant for Christmas, and for my birthday, which is is Novemver. But I'm glad I got it already. :-)

@brontosaurus It didn't work so well in colour actually. The blue sky made it look too cheerful!

Dramatic shot.

Wonderful effect...love it....my mum was this evening watering the window boxes and hanging baskets in between showers.....they never seem to catch the rain...must be annoying! Fav!
posted June 11th, 2012  
Super capture! The reflections are so clear and that bare tree adds to the sense of mystery of that surreal effect. Fav for me.
posted June 11th, 2012  
Great elt shot and wonderful processing. Fav.
posted June 11th, 2012  
That scraggly tree is amazing! Great processing too. Saw a video on the news today...apparently Wales is being swept away. Hope you have your boat ready, just in case!

@fueast must have a built in bar...for those long floats
posted June 11th, 2012  
@shutterbugger ha ha laughed out loud. Actually the fridge is full of miniatures but I really don't know why. In case of emergency?
posted June 11th, 2012  
@fueast for emergency use and small so you have to pace yourself. Floating and drinking may not mix! It's 35C here today...I'm melting! Thank god for ac!
posted June 11th, 2012  
@shutterbugger Brilliant I've just put a cardie and the heating on!

@fueast my cousin is coming from Manchester on Friday for a week. I'm guessing she's going to think Canada has gone tropical.
posted June 11th, 2012  
@shutterbugger She won't be able to cope. It'll all be too bright and cheerful.
posted June 11th, 2012  
Wonderful reflection in the water and great overall composition
posted June 11th, 2012  
@fueast LOL! Apparently she's a ginger (I've never met her). Going to burn to a crisp.
