Melville Drive Flooding

I took all these photos at about 3.45pm on the afternoon of 29 August 2012, after driving along Melville Drive and finding it flooded following a heavy downpour.

In the ten minutes that it took me to park the car and return to Melville Drive with my camera, the water had already begun to subside.  However, I did manage to take a few photos of the scene.
