The Thames has been flooding for a few days. Not to the extent it flooded in 2002 when many of our local roads were closed, but it’s been climbing the tow-paths & the speed that it has been racing has been disturbing the ducks.
The persistent rain this week has meant that I haven’t been able to get any good photographs, but yesterday afternoon just as the sun was getting lower in the sky, the conditions were perfect so I went down to the weir to see how high the water was.
I was really happy with my photos, so I have spent today working out how to watermark them with free photo-editing software. I chose GIMP as it came highly recommended on CNET, and I read a few different tutorials and blundered my way through! I am very happy with my very first attempt at ‘owning’ my photographs! Please don’t ask how I did it, none of the other people’s versions of GIMP seemed the same as mine, so as usual, I ended up making it up as I went along!!
Without further ado, here are my pictures!
These photos don’t really fit the instructions in this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections however I did focus on the reflections of the sky, trees, boats and ducks when centring the images, so they are a loose fit
