When I set out with my camera I usually have in mind what I’m trying to capture. The resulting images are not necessarily the same as I had in mind, although often they are fairly close to what I originally wanted to capture.

Sometimes however, something about the location I’m in takes me away from that original idea. The above photo is a perfect example of that.

I’d captured the sunset images that I wanted, although I felt like there might be other, non landscape images I could take. I spied this section of the ground, that shows flood waters in an area that doesn’t often see water. I was fascinated by the cracks in the ground so took a photo.

Some minor cropping and playing around with the original colours gave me this abstract photo. It’s my take on the flooded river.
