In the lovely village of Flixton where I live we are surrounded by the Manchester Ship Canal on one side & the River Mersey on the other, yesterday the Mersey broke it's banks & flooded vast areas .

This is usually a field & not a lake.

Whilst taking these pictures 2 policemen stopped to ask what I was doing, I looked at the camera in my hand then looked at them.

I sarcastically replied "I'm doing research into stupid questions"

They took my camera off me, looked at what pictures I had taken then returned my camera to me.

2nd time in a week that I've come across idiots in blue.

Thanks.
I was going to take a picture of the policemen but one of them turned round & said "don't even think about it"

But I did anyway when they weren't looking but it turned out pretty crap :)

Lovely picture. Dreadful subject. I feel for all who live on flood plains.

It's not very often we get floods around here, it all very exciting (well until our homes are damaged)

If I didn't read the story, I'll think you took this pic by the lake.
Don't understand why the policemen should have questioned?

btw, it's a gorgeous shot, Stu. :))
