Hi

Joined in the last few days. Live in Bristol & have a fair few shots of the river Avon.

Here are the first (of many, I expect), Tom.

#1 & #2 River Avon, flooded by combination of snow melt water, rain and, not helped by, a high tide downstream. The trees are usually near the river bank. I'll get a few in daylight after the water has subsided for comparison.
Pictures taken without a tripod and guess focussing as one of the only light sources apart from the moon, was my head torch. I couldn't go for a small aperture & set on infinity, as I had also neglected to take the remote release; so was limited to the 30 secs max, rather than bulb.

#3 - further downstream, after the 1st dusting of snow in Bristol in 2009.

#4 The river Avon meandering through Bristol, taken from a hot air balloon, also shows some of the Floating Harbour, which is fed by the river.
