REFLECTIONS WEEKEND: Floodwaters still

We've had so much rain recently....nearly all spring was rainy and the first few days of summer, well, ditto.... All this makes for flooding. Above you see the reflection of a houseboat/cafe. The two cement structures in the foreground are the backs of benches, which of course are too wet to sit on.... If I were to stand in the water, the tops of the bench would reach my waist, and I'm about 5'7" (170 cm.) The whole lower sidewalk between the benches and the usually short bridge to the houseboat has been flooded.

This post is for James'Reflections Weekend.

I see that we're "neighbors" over at James' place, Bibi.
This looks like some rather serious flooding. Here's hoping for some dry weather soon!

Great reflections, but a very sad situation! Hate to hear of so much flooding and I do hope things dry up quickly. Stay safe and dry!

That's so abstract. The hedge looks like Arabic script.

Extraordinary drama in these reflections! Love the angled perspective! The curved "wall?" looks like a broken infinity symbol!

Gaelyn said...

Wow, that's a lot of water. I didn't recognize the benches for what they are.

Wet feet but a great photo. You could send some rain over here - they're talking of a drought in UK!

Great photo!
I've moved to this part of Belgrade in 1976 and always felt anxiously when water rises this high.
However, my dogs loved to jump into the water :)

Very creative and effective composition. I like it. Pull the plug and let the bathtub drain.

Joanna said...

Very artful photo. I just discovered your blog and will be back. I hope that things dry out soon.

It's a real shame about the flood but the reflection is amazing.

I hope the flood waters go down soon!

A theme about reflections, colors and shapes! So well done.

Daryl said...

That is a lot of water ... I suspect it will take a while before it recedes and things dry out

The way you took this one adds a lot to the picture!
