Driving through the Water's Edge


A couple of weeks ago I was on my way back from Stockport on the bus. As we approached Pole Bank the bus slowed down. A thunderstorm had caused flash flooding where a small stream is carried under the road by a culvert which appeared to have blocked temporarily.

I was on the front seat and still had my camera round my neck (hidden under my overcoat) and I was able to get a couple of quick shots of the scene as we went through.

The other photograph can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

A contribution to the November CDPB theme The Water's Edge.

  2. Gerald, Brianna: Can guess what it must be like.... Chennai was hit by a cyclone yesterday... was tempted to go out and take a picture of a ship that broke anchor and landed on the beach, but wiser counsel prevailed and stayed at home. Here's a picture from the newspaper... http://www.thehindu.com/news/states/tamil-nadu/cyclone-nilam-hits-tamil-nadu-coast-with-strong-winds/article4050114.ece

  3. Fun if you like splashes but not if you're a driver or a pedestrian.
