Calm and Peaceful Water

I do hope you're not all fed-up with my River Ayr walk pictures. Because I'm posting another one. 
I took a few different views of this shot and I couldn't pick which one I liked - so I asked Emma and she said this one.

I think it shows what a lovely day we had that day. 
However, I think it was the calm before the storm because we have had 2 solid days of rain (heavy), hailstorms and wind. In fact we had flooding in town - which made the news on the telly. The fire brigade and police had to close streets as it was so deep in places.  It is amazing though because today all the water is gone. You would never know there had been a problem.
Isn't is strange that some places are suffering lack of rainfall and here we are waterlogged.

Lovely photograph, Ellie! The lighting is exquisite. We have been dealing with heavy rains and extreme winds here in the midwest of the United States. Flooding problems too. Can't wait for sunshine tomorrow. Thanks for brightening my day with your beautiful image!

I wish you you share your rain with some of the ones that need it. We have had quite a bit the past day or so so we are catching up. We were dry for a month, but that is not near as bad as some.

Oh, I do like that view...
Karen said…
Oh, yes, this one is excellent. I love the branch overhang with subtle reflections and shadows in the water.
Jill said…
Such a pretty picture, Elle! So peaceful and cheery all at once.

I'm glad the water has receded!
Love the peak of the water under the autumn leaves.
Ellie - I never get tired of your pictures. I am such a dunce that I cannot post any photos yet.

Incidentally, how do you pronounce the Ayr (air ?) River?

Beautiful photo!
blessings to you - Marsha

This is lovely! Really pretty light. We are in the no rain category.
our weather has gone all wonky, too... it was almost 90 last Sunday, but this week has been in the lower 40s at night & suppose to dip down to the mid 30s tonight... strange weather

happy week =)
Keep posting them, Ellie - I enjoy seeing them! :)

That looks like a good thinking place, very beautiful.

hello, here I am...

Nice chice, really!
A beautifull photo.

Shame...the rainstorm.
And you are right: here in Portugal we have sun and wind, but no rain at all: autunm...and no rain! They say that tomorrow is oing to rain a lot...and that we are going to have some snow in Serra Da Estrela, a few KM the place I live. Well...I do't Know...Today is hot...I don't think rain will come soon...

See you...

Big Hug
