This week I'm posting a couple of panoramic photos of the Flooded Thames at Wallingford.

  1. The first view shows friendly sunny spells ... Than I saw the water and think: That's Not good ...
    Have a great weekend.

  10. Thank you for returning to Sunlit Sunday this week, Bill. Based on the location of the trees and shrubs, the flooding of the Thames looks very extensive (the bridge's shadow shows beautifully); I hope the water doesn't take long to recede and that any damage to property isn't too severe.

    If you could put an actual link into the post I'd appreciate it; it makes it easier for people to pop over and see who else is participating. Thanks for your trouble and enjoy your week.

  19. Beautiful pictures! The powers of the water is awesome - I really hope the flood hasn't done to much damage. Here in Norway we have finely got our cold weather, so now I hope for lots of snow and a lot of ice on the fjord!

    1. Hes down river then and it won't really affect him, they would rather people like us upstream get flooded than let London catch it.

  25. Awesome photos, but sorry the residents have experienced this type flooding. Really liked first photo with the image showing the shadow of the bridge on the water! Hoping for sunny days for these folks. Smiles..Susan

    1. Though we had the storms it was not so bad round here, few trees falling over and lots of rain & flooding but most people are ok

  27. Yes, it's flooded, but heck, it IS the Thames, so it's always beautiful.

  28. Rushing water is never a good sign. It can take so much with it when rushing. For years I was an emergency worker with the Canadian Red Cross in Prince Edward Island and was on deployment to a number of flood zones. We just visited Storm Sandy in Staton Island after a year has passed from that flood zone and see 5 more houses have been torn down. The effects a flood leaves on a persons well being and their true possesions is heart breaking.

    1. I have to agree, the Thames is flooding and also eroding the banks away along with flooding out houses causing no end of damage. Lucky it is limited to flooding in this area

  29. Sorry about the flooding. The first photo is beautiful, even though it shows a natural disaster.

    1. I think only the buildings on the left were affected from what I have seen but thank you for the comment and visit.

  30. Your photos are amazing but the fact is that it was a desaster for the whole area, as I saw on TV. I was there last Christmas and the weather was so mild...
    Nice to find you!
