Where the Brue and the Parrot meet the Severn

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 19 December 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

As the title says this is where the two smaller rivers meet the river Severn estuary. There is something about the way the light hits the mud around that area when the tide is out that I love to capture. This is a colour pic that I've not played with at all, just as I saw it.

FUJIFILM FinePix S2750HD 1/550 second F/9.0 ISO 64 18 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
