Haha the streets are mine!

I went to town tonight to see how the flooding was and I thought it might be interesting to get some night shots, maybe reflections on the river etc. When I got there I found that there was a lot more river than usual and I couldn't get to a lot of the places I wanted to. The swans in the swan sanctuary were very happy though swanning about all important since their domain had increased in size. Hope you all like this picture.
Will catch up looking at people's work very soon but work is crazy at the moment and I have been out past my bedtime so I need sleep now!
Slightly surreal. I take it the river isn't usually on this side of the fence :)

@iqscotland Thank you, yes that is correct. All of my photographic intentions were foiled by the murky waters of the Severn. I had planned to go along the path and get shots of the cathedral reflected in the river.

Yep - this is amazing David. It has a real soft quality and is lonely but expresses love to me at the same time. B&W is perfect. Just gorgeous.

Amazing shot David. Someone earlier said the water looks frozen. I fully agree, to me it looks like the stage set of a 50's ice show.
