Winter in England is usually wet. Summer is often very wet too. Normally we do not have to travel far to come across liquid in the form of water. We spend quite a lot of time keeping it out of our houses & shoes! This week we have been feeling the tail of Hurricane Sandy, so we have been experiencing high winds and lots of torrential rain, weather we are more used to mid June.
Today we took Wilson out for a walk on Chobham Common. Since the common is a grassland heath with sandy soil we thought it would not be too muddy, but we hadn’t remembered how much rain we had experienced recently.
Most of the footpaths were more liquid than solid, reminding me of this week’s Travel theme, so I had a go at capturing the dampness of the walk. The weather was constantly changing as we walked, from bright sunshine to heavy rain, so I managed to capture some rainbows & interesting contrasts in colours due to the changing light.
Some more photos from our lovely walk.
