Calm in the storm

Amidst the choppy environment, there are some who know how to find peace.

PS: Taken today in Swansea with heavy winds and rain lashing through the coast.

Here we go again 

After  #StormDoris it’s #StormEwan now 🙄. 

It has been raining since yesterday night but at least the winds haven’t been bad so far (touch wood)  and my wheelie bins haven’t made any attempts at their escape (touch wood again).  

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Water

Last time I was here in London, the weather was mixed. Even though it was said to be the onset of Summer I did not feel like it. But I got to experience the proper English Summer (or the heat wave) this time. When I was wondering if it would even rain someday, there it was, one evening. But not like this in the photograph. It was just a drizzle. I took the photograph of the window pane with my phone, but since I wished for a proper rain to curb the heat, I added the rain effect using Pixlr 😉 water3.jpg

I always love looking at the sea, the lake, any water bodies. It is very calming. While we were at the Tower Bridge and looking at the passing boats and the waves of the Thames, I took these two shots of a boat carrying the cargo. Thought it would make a good GIF. So used GIF Creator and here is the effect. water.gif

Why don’t we drive in the rain

Another favorite of mine. I loved the fact that even the footpath was part of the artwork here.
