Elvaston Castle 4/10

Just to highlight our “mixed bag” Summer the only things enjoying the rain as we walked through the woodland towards the house with my Camera Club friends were these ducks on the lake.  This was about 20 minutes after the opening shot of this series on Monday, oh how quickly things change.

Very different from Monday Brian but equally stunning.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sally, I said things turned a bit for the worse didn't I.
Only mad englishmen walk about in the rain.
Brian Walbey: Or better still stand under a tree and take pictures.

Water in this state always reminds me of seeing the surface of toffee when it is being pulled. When I say pulled Brian, I don't me taken home after a few drinks for a bit of you know what.
Brian Walbey: I get the gist Chad, I think we might be a tad too senior for your second suggestion.
I think these are Canada Geese Brian. I like the rain bouncing off the water. Probably more than you enjoyed it bouncing off you.
Brian Walbey: Yes they are Canada Geese and I was standing under a tree when I took this.
You'll have the birdwatchers after you here, Brian! "Ducks"? These are Canada Geese smile
Brian Walbey: Yes a very fine flock of Canada Geese as well Tom.
I like how the rain give the water extra sparkle and texture here Brian.
Brian Walbey: It was the rain splashes that set me on taking the shot and the Geese came along at the right time.
yes, yes. Brian, Branta canadensis, Canada Geese, Barnacla Canadiense, lots of birdwatchers at SC!!
Very nice image too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan, we get a lot of Canada Geese round where I live.
I love your capture of the raindrops in the water.
Brian Walbey: Thanks mary, it was the raindrops that set me off taking the photo.
Gosh. You've captured that rain brilliantly Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, it was the raindrops that set me off taking the photo.
A great shot Brian, the rain on the surface really adds to this scene! smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, it was the raindrops that set me off taking the photo in the first place.
This has come out well in spite of the weather, in fact it has added interest .
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
Wonderful Brian. These canada geese don't seem minding the rain!
Brian Walbey: Geese are built for the wet Richard' we're not!

You have been spotted Brian - watch out!
Brian Walbey: Oh dear!
You've caught the rain on the water very well, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It looked too good to miss while I stood under a tree with my colleagues.

They look well organised smile
Brian Walbey: They do indeed John, and they weren't worried about the rain.
