The River Teme in Ludlow in full spate, with melt water rushing down from the Welsh hills. The little snow covered tree from Mondays shot can just be seen between the two trunks in the centre of the picture. The river has burst its banks and flooded the lower path.

A dangerous spectacle seen close to the machine and shoot him! The torrential water always afraid because her speech is always unpredictable. Thanks for the information in the introduction. It is interesting to read before seeing the picture! You take on the problem easily! There is a heavy, hazy atmosphere that must be filled with small particles suspended in water! Greetings, Adela

Ok - with this one I can see the colour!
Somehow it doesn't look as cold as it probably was at the time.
And I thought for you I would pen a rhymne
But found with this I'm a bit of a Philistine
Especially when it's close to bedtime.
So I'm just going to have to say I really like the photo :)

@dobbino: Poetry in motion Rob, The rhyme you wrote 's a proper job :) Thanks

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Grouser,
This is pure adventure. In these water masses is nothing left standing in His place. It is inconceivable how much can be the power of water. They gave the scene reflects very much alive, as well as color. I hope that the disaster was not too bad. Wonderful evening for you and thank you for your comment.
Dear greetings Christel
