Day #1793

Day #1793 Title: Face Down November (Inclement Weather Edition)
Location: Heybridge Basin
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 10-22mm EF-S f/3.5-4.5 USM
Notes: This wasn’t the location I originally had in mind for this month’s Face Down Tuesday. Initially I was going to shoot it at Paper Mill Lock which is about 5 miles from home, but I tried driving there today only to find the road closed due to severe flooding. No chance of getting anywhere near. So I journeyed further down the canal – all 13 miles – to the outlet at Heybridge Basin where it empties into the Blackwater Estuary via a tidal lock. Hardly a soul about today – and not surprising – due to the persistent drizzle. I was lucky to get this in the bag and drive home again before the deluge started in earnest once more.
