Flooded Beauty

05/01/2014
Christmas and New Year rainfall has been exceptional even by the standards of recent years. An early morning sky check revealed textured cloud and a clear south-eastern horizon, giving the prospect of an exceptional sunrise. I decided that a reflection of the sky might do it justice and headed for the Kennett valley where West Overton church provides a focal point on the horizon. As expected, the River Kennett had overflowed into its flood plain. Wading through the flood waters I found a foreground of frosted grass. All I then had to do was wait until the sky reached its maximum colour.
