Still raining

Yesterday two friends of mine came round for a cuppa and chat while David was out with his train buddies. We went down to the beach to capture a few photos, but unfortunately the rain only stopped for a short time and we had to come home again.

The black swans seem to be enjoying the rain as they chomp on the seagrass.

We have had over 300 mm rain in the last couple of days.

I think we need to start building the ark now. Gone from one extreme to another.

We are off to Newcastle today with friends to the theatre. I expect the area around Salt Ash will be flooded as we drive through because it is very low lying land there.
Great scene..............love the black swans!

Although it has its drawbacks in terms of flooding and over watering, it's fantastic to have so much to get rid of those bush fires and clear the air again. Nice image. Black swans are always special. Remind me of Chartwell. Churchill always had them in the lake there.

It never rains but it pours as they say! What a contrast to all your dry weather....I expect there is much re growth where the fires where. Those black swans really pop out!

Great capture

This is quite a contrast with the drought and heatwave that you were suffering not too long ago. I hope the rain doesn't bring too many problems with it.

Sounds like you're living through the old saying, "When it rains, it pours!" I guess it's hard to adjust to so much water after it being so dry for so long. Pretty swans!

Amazing how there can be so much contrast in the weather in a few short days. I think we'd welcome a bit of rain... but not too much considering it's still summer - want the best of both worlds. ;-)

Love the black swans. They are not very common here in the U.S., but I was lucky enough to find some and photograph them a couple of years ago. Many of my American friends got all excited and wanted to know where they could find these rare finds. I should have told them just to head down under!

Such a lot of rain, I hope it’s falling where it’s most needed

A lovely scene and composition.

So seldom that we see swans on the lake and never black ones. fav.
You've problems with rain and we with the bitter cold. 27 degrees Celsius and down to 31 1/2 with the windchill factor.
