Flooding in HDR

Even though there is still another month to go till the end of winter we've already had the 3rd wettest winter ever in Port Elizabeth.  Last week we had two days of rain again and this following the flooding we had three weeks ago means that there is a lots of water around.  I drove out to have a look at the Seaview Road just outside the city which is over 1,5 meters under water.  Took this picture to the side of the road with the clouds reflecting in the water and then played around with a bit of HDR to give it that extra effect.

  3. Yes, that is pretty until you understand that the sign is not supposed to be *in* the water! We have not had much of a summer where I live, but the rest of the country is ready to hand summer off to you.

  4. What an intersting photograph! Golly - the last time I was in PE, mother-in-law was complaining about water restrictions, and her usually beautiful garden was looking a little thirsty! Hope the dams have all filled up :)

  5. Not sure I like the HDR effect. The reflection in the water is great. Looks a bit wet there! Diane
