Photographer's Note

The last few days has seen some major flooding on the Isle of Wight, and this gave me an idea!
Why not combine the floods with a sunrise?
So i thought of a few places that i knew would be flooded and the next morning i drove to the village in Adgestone (near Sandown).
I knew it would be a nightmare to try and walk to the spot that i wanted to go to because it was quite a distance, so i took my bike with me on my bike rack which made things a lot easier!
I had to ride through knee deep water for almost 5 minutes before i reached dry land, and then i had to climb over a gate and then into another area of flooded land and i had to wade through the water until i came to this field where i found a beautiful old tree reflecting in the flood water.
I then had to wait almost an hour before the light was good enough to take any photos!
What made it worse was that there was frost on the patches of grass so the water i was stood in must have been close to 0'c!

I used an ND8 Graduated filter
