A Wet Walk

A Wet Walk
With all the wet weather we've been having it's been difficult to get out for a walk. However, we did have a couple of fine days recently and I did manage to get out for a couple of hours but walking was very difficult - slipping and sliding would be more accurate and eventually I had to turn back because the path was flooded.

Well done to you for trying and capturing a lovely scene. I have given up for now....but, the Severn is breaking the banks again now and the Environment agency men were out looking at it today....from the safety of a big bridge ;)

The situation seems to get more serious every day, Dave. I heard a report on radio today that the average rainful for Jan & Feb in SE is 140 mm and so far this year we've had over 400 with more unsettled weather ahead. I'm afraid that walk will have to do for you for a little while.

You managed some blue sky...I have almost forgotten what that looks like!

At least you have a bit of blue sky on this lovely shot and what a pity to have such wonderful paths near the water and not being able to use it because of the mud.

Very much the same situation where we are. We're on high ground too but just along our road there are house in a slight dip where sandbags are out. A late friend of Tom's who was a solicitor lived in one of those houses. It used to get flooded sometimes even then and she fought with council to get extra drainage put in which they eventually did but it appears that they haven't kept them cleared out.

o0o indeed after todays continuous rain Dave I dread to think
what this will be looking like now ... its terrible to see the flooding,
but makes for great photographic opportunities ... the poor wildlife
I do feel for them ... where do worms go when its like this ? ;-))) oOo

have a lovely weekend whatever you do ...;-)

wading, waddling, walking in water
squelshing and squashing all under
the wellies and socks that are soaking wet
and when you get home oh what a mess ;-)

toes pink and tingly its true
a bowl of hot water and a soak for you ;-)
don't drop the camera whatever you do
as there's bound to be a cow called moo ;-)

You made a beautiful image regardless. It's just the same here, only without the sun. Can't remember when I last saw it. Must be a couple of weeks at least.

I have never seen as much mud as this year ..living on a boat on the (muddy) towpath can be a bit trying in this weather!!

Great path shot..lovely sky and sunlight!

he wondered just what was in the sack ;-)
there were carrots and sugar lumps galore
