Flooding at Stratford-Upon-Avon, UK
Nov 25, 2012

Hi all,

I have recently been to Stratford-upon-avon UK to take some shoots of the flooded and the experience has been fascinating. Firstly, the river took over part of the city and to take the photos I wanted, you had to step into the water (freezing) using long boots. All careful was possibly taken and I manage to survive! But after two ours walking there it was starting not be funny any more, specially because i wasn't feeling two finger on my feet!

But It was worth it and went and in the afternoon I headed to a very old windmill near by.

The session was organized by Russ Barnes, very famous landscape photographer in UK.

Thanks all.

Looks quite bad, was it just overflowing into the banks or also onto the side streets?

Making the best of a bad situation

Sometimes situations arise that are challenging or downright unfortunate for those involved but present fantastic photographic opportunities. Clearly, this was the case in your circumstances. Your photographs are beautiful--nice, clean simple compositions enhanced be reflections in the floodwaters or the presence of water where it's not typically expected.

Well done--thanks for posting.
