Today we were given ‘water ‘ to photograph, and also to take the shot from a vertical angle, and then to turn it around so that it is horizontal.

Well, water was rather a fitting subject for today seeing as it was lashing with rain for most of the day! I didn’t want to photograph the rain though preferring to capture some actual water.

Some of my visits this morning were to an elderly care home and I usually park my car just outside, by a little bridge that goes over this stream. Today I had a new colleague with me and the weather was absolutely filthy. The wind nearly blew us over and the driving rain pounded us as we walked the short distance to the home.

However when we had finished, the rain had stopped so I managed to get these photos. My colleague, however,  was disappointed with me as she thought that for the ‘water’ theme, it would be far better if she drove my car into the huge puddles that were everywhere and I took the photo as I got drenched by the splash! She is going to fit into our team pretty well by the sounds of it, having such a cruel sense of humour!

By the way, as far as orientation goes, I actually thought that in this case the horizontal angle works better, despite the stream running downwards!
