Wet reflections

First things first ... I've been a bit busy tending to cleaning up of our recent massive snowstorm, so I have not had time to visit and comment on your blogs.  I hope to resume shortly. 

I took this 25-January-10 after we had received 2 inches of rain in 4 hours.  I work in Horsham, PA (the complex I work in can be seen in the background of the photo).  Horsham has a lot of low places that flood easily.  This picture is shot on Davis Grove Road facing Babylon Road.  If you look at the google map link, this stream crosses the road at the number '908'. 

I though this would be good for Weekend Reflections #21

If you headed the opposite way on Davis Grove, there's an old stone bridge that crosses a creek and you can see it's way over the bank.  If you look very carefully a little to the right of center, you can see a swing hanging from a tree.  If you can't find it, look at the right-most tree.  There are two more trees to the left of it that are similar distances from me.  It's to the left of the third tree.

Lots of water, no doubt! And, the perfect opportunity to find fabulous reflections on the street and puddles! Nice captures...

Hi Wayne. That sure is a lot of water. Water is great for reflections though. You would get pretty wet if you sat on that swing. Nice shots!

Thankfully our power is on again after about 24hrs. I live in an apartment so I can't have a generator. :( Thanks for your concern and I hope you get your place cleaned up soon.

It looks very wet alright... very similar to what I saw when our snow began to melt....

Or "how a bad situation leads you to make great and interesting pictures!"

I think the title says it all. Well spotted.

Great one!

Rebecca said...

Yep, I know exactly where you are talking about. A very floody mess when it rains.

The flooding does look bad, but there is a lot of water for your reflections.

Wow, looks like Texas when we get alot of rain. It's either feast or famine around here, and these low lying areas take the brunt of it. But it does make for great photo ops! Hope you are digging your self out. I think I'd rather have the rain! Kathy

I kinda wonder what these two sections currently look like with all the snow we've had of late.

Your second shot has my vote. I'm thinking it would make a very good conversion to B&W too.

I like the light in the reflection in the first shot :)

These are great shots, although flooding is never very nice to deal with.

Reflections on pavement always intrigue me. These are lovely and the story that went with them made my visit here even more enjoyable. Stay safe and dry!

Great photos but way too much water for this time of year.
