How the heatwave changed the mud texture

You know I love the mud in the Avon, especially the silt banks that block the second entrance lock to the Floating Harbour at the Cumberland Basin.  I love the way the light catches on the ridges and textures – but something about the summer heat and maybe the lower river levels seem to have changed the consistency of the mud.  It looks more porridge-y, and like the meanders have flattened down.

I like it just as much, though.  A flickr album of photos from walking home on 19th July, with patches of seaweed on the oddly flattened mud:

I love these textures!  The mud and the seaweed, and the texture of the water at the very end of the Harbour…  Love these long walks home.
