The Weekend in Black and White


Last Tuesday night we had heavy rain.
This morning Dungloe river was still running hard through town.

Visit the Home Page this weekend for many more black and white photos from around the world.

For an instant I had an image in my mind of people have to row from house to house. A little waterwheel would look amazing in there.

You didn't actually SAY "flood", so I hope it didn't, but this looks like it's not the usual path for the river. Hope things have calmed down by now!

Dragonstar said...

Dimple, believe it or not this is the usual path for the river. The buildings on either side are on stone supports. I took the photo from the road bridge.

Godness! Hope you are dry indoors :)
I like the picture a lot - much energy in it :)

Birgitta said...

Much energy here! Great shot!

Time to build a water-wheel!

It looks to be a very strange location for the buildings or the river - which came first, I wonder! A good mystery shot from your position on the bridge!

superb

I guess it is hard to stop a river once it has determined its path!

that´s too much water in the wrong place. Hope it stops.

Raging water flowing through the city--hope no one suffered from its fury. It does make for a very good picture though. Mickie :)

amazing power and movement captured in this photo!

Greyscale Territory said...

A powerful rush of water begging for a camera shot! Great photo!

Genie said...

This reminds of what it looks like out here in the country when the rains come and the creeks are too full. Nice capture...I can really feel that water rushing between the buildings.

Woody said...

Yikes! Interesting how the water is coming out from under the building, but it looks like it was designed for that.

Dave said...

Full of life image, well done.

anemonen said...

Wow fast running water! I call it springriver.

awarewriter said...

Your image is alive with the energy of the water. Great stuff!

As I have time, I'll add to the tutorials. I published another on April 6.

Goodness, are you all OK? Any damage to property?

David said...

We are having the worst drought in 40 years here in Texas. I've not see that much water in months perhaps longer. I hope all will be well...it looks very treacherous. Take care.
