Not quite water everywhere, but whats left of it.. I went for another ride today mainly for the purpose of taking some pictures of the flooded countryside but of course, timing is everything and my timing is rubbish.
I knew after my ride the other day that that was the time to have taken the pictures. My more regular readers will have heard of my reluctance to stop for any reason when I am out for a ride and many times I have thought after a ride “That would have made a good picture for my readers..” So today, just for you I stopped to take some pictures.. they will not have quite effect they would have on Monday but maybe give you some idea.
It was a good day for a ride, the temperature rocketed up into double figures.. 10c (50f) The sun was shining and there were very strong winds.. about 20+mph, which was good going out, not so good coming back.
Carlton Causeway, towards the bridge, see the road on the right.. on the left is normally a green field
Felmersham Bridge, just downstream from Carlton. The water here is around 4ft higher than normal. You would see a lot more of the bridge arches normally’ (Sorry for ‘Blown Out’ sky in the picture, It was too bright for iPhone to deal with)
This is just a view from the ‘cockpit’ on the way back Carlton village can just be seen in the distance at the bottom of the hill. You can’t see the headwind in this picture.. but its there.. however you can see the SUNSHINE !!
