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, click on any of them to see them full size
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 🙂
