A park drowned in the River Thames

I took this picture this afternoon, of a nearby park, the most important one in this town, right at its heart. The recent bad weather and constant made the Thames River overflow. This area of England is prompt to flooding when it rains a lot. I had not seen the park in a while and wanted to see it. A lot of it has either been invaded by the river, or been covered with gigantic ponds created by the rain, ponds that look more like little lakes. The flood created a lot of suffering obviously, to everyone living near the river. Nevertheless, I cannot help but find that the park half drowned has a terrifying beauty.
