Severe flooding has swept the South East of England with impeccable timing. It all started on the eve of Christmas Eve (Monday 23rd December), leaving commuters in a bind with train delays and cancellations, homes without power and waterlogged roads and buildings. It’s a real shame that people have had their Christmas’ put in such a pickle, although I suppose bad things never comes at a good time. Anyway, on Christmas Day, I ventured out with the folks to check out the extent of what was going on in my lovely little Godalming and surrounding area of Farncombe and Guildford. A lack of wellies and being with the parents meant I couldn’t get in the thick of it, so no shots of submerged cars. Although I assure you, there were. Either way, I hope I captured the eeriness of the whole thing, the stillness of the water, the reflections and the cloud formations all multiplied by it being a quiet old Christmas Wednesday made for some real moodiness. Now I’ll shut it and let you enjoy the photos.
