You've been giving us terrific coverage of the flooding in that area---thanks, Dave. Are many people displaced because of it? The damages must be in the millions of pounds by now!

Blue skies, beautiful reflections and calm onlookers....
And still the flooding continues and the river height of 8.1 meters isn`t making the situation any better!

Great shot, Dave! Is the flooding from the spring/king tides, or from storm rains, or both?

Blue skies, calm reflections,
good thing this came with information otherwise I would think this was in the wrong category.
Why are you so prone to these floods?

Nice to see some sunny skies, at least!
Crazy weather you've been having for a long time!

Terrific image Dave, was the town OK? We had a tame high tide so no reports of anything dramatic.

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
