These photos were taken almost a year apart. the photo below was taken on New Years Eve and shows the flood level of the Thames to be quite high.
Have a great day
This blog is to showcase some of the photo's I've taken, the pictures can be from my archive of many years or taken recently. They are from where I live and the various places I have been. I hope Enjoy my work and come back to visit again
It is so interesting to see the river a year apart. You are getting so much rain there. Sure hope there's a dry spell in the future so everything can recede to more average levels.ReplyDelete
No doubt there will be but we have had more rain since so more photos to comeDelete
Wow - not much difference in the water level.ReplyDelete
Might not look it but in the regon of half a meter differenceDelete
It looks like this area isn't a stranger to flooding. Nice look back! Hope you are enjoying the New Year so far. :)ReplyDelete
No it's not and has been a lot highter than thisDelete
Really interesting photos Bill. Despite our beautiful sunny Summer, the ground is still saturated and I don't think this is the end of high water levels and flooding.ReplyDelete
No your right there,I'll check tomorrow to see where the level is but most of the fields are flooddedDelete
I guess the turn of the year is favorable to storms and floods...
You seem to have had much of all that lately in England even if the levels show more water for last year.
In Brittany -France, they also have their feet deep in deep overflows from heavy rains.
Happy New Year!
Does not matter the time of year, if we have heavy rain it floods. Too many houses and not enough dranageDelete
Mercy that is a lot of water whichever way you look at it. Good shots Bill! YAM xx
Oh yes your right there. If you look up the pillar in the first photo you can see a flood line from back in the 1800'sDelete
Happy New Year Bill, with all your love one's !!ReplyDelete
Warm greetings from Holland, Anna ;-))
Thank you Anna I wish you the same.Delete
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you, Bill.ReplyDelete
Wow, there is a lot of water and no snow.
Best regards, Synnöve
Oh yes some of that would really make it interesting.Delete
It looks like it's an annual event!ReplyDelete
I'm afraid it can be more frequent than that when it comes to flooding.Delete
How strange that they both look so similar!ReplyDelete
Yes it is especially as it was within days of the time of yearDelete
These thing seem to be happening more and more often!ReplyDelete
Afraid so and there is nothing that can be done other than hope your not affected.Delete
