Christmas Floods

"Christmas Floods"

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.
