Tay River Flood

Added on by thomas brauer.

It's been raining.  It's been raining a lot.  Enough to make me walk the neighbourhood listening for anyone doing extensive carpentry in their back yard - perhaps a boat measured in cubits?  The images here (there are probably too many) were taken with my son as we walked a walkway across the Tay River when it was nearly at its peak of flood.  It was a mighty sight.  So much water racing, carrying trees, caring nothing for anything in its path. 

The images above show the river in flood in the context of the buildings of the town.

These images show the river taking over the allotments on an island in the Tay.  These are just upstream from a lovely little golf course.

Some slightly more artistic expressions...
