Flooding of Chester Meadows has been captured in spectacular 360 images.

Neil Cooper, from Handbridge, took the photos on a walk with his fiancée Kimberley Haggis and their dog, Benson, on December 29.

A professional photographer, Neil shared the work on his site virtualchester.com.

The meadows have worked as a flood plain for the River Dee in Chester after the sheer volume of rainfall throughout December and most recently by Storm Frank.

Neil said: "I specialise in panoramic photographic, but I really enjoy doing things like this outside work.

"I like watching people's reactions when they see the 360's for the first time because I think I've got used to it.

"Each panorama is five or six stills which are then stitched together, it's autonomous now so just did it in front of the TV watching a film."

Neil, director of C Inside Media, took the photos by holding a monopod with his camera attached above his head and shooting through a fish-eye lens.

A wet-looking Neil, Kimberley and Benson, a five-year-old Bernese Mountain Dog, can be spotted splashing through the water.

He said: "It was our usual half-hour walk which ended up taking an hour because I kept stopping to take pictures.

"Benson enjoyed himself, we used him as a depth check because by the end of it we were almost up to the top of our wellies."

Water levels on the meadows have been dropping, the latest forecasts suggest the next bout of heavy rain is possible over the coming weekend (January 2-3).
