Tewkesbury Abbey
The area immediately in front of the camera should not be under water, and would normally be only a small brook to the right, but the recent rain has caused this. Levels have receded a bit but still quite bad, an inspired decision to build the Abbey where it is as it never seems to flood.

Perhaps the decision to build the Abbey in that location was not so much inspired but perhaps based on previous experiences of flooding? I can't imagine that the present flooding in recent years is a relatively new problem. (Didn't a chap called Noah built an ark a few years ago? ) The flood has provided a fabulous reflection for the trees and the Abbey itself and you have used it to great advantage and all helped by that gorgeous sky.

This I like a lot, full of things to look at and detail plus the fantastic reflections, well spotted and taken.
Although I would have been tempted to save the image for next months challenge which is reflections

It's an ill flood that does no one any good, I think the saying goes
So you have benefitted here Jeffrey with the resulting 'pond' acting as a mirror fro the gorgeous scene beyond with the Abbey nicely picked out the better for us to see.
Well done that man for braving the deluge to capture this smashing shot, luv it.
Just one minor niggle. the sky is perhaps a tad overdone, but just a tad

Gorgeous Jeff. Love the reflections and the odd spot of colour.. but something I just realised which I never even thought of before is that the reflections are longer than the original? How strange.. Great image though, well done!
