River Suir burst its banks

I apologize for the silence.

To keep the blog looking updated, I add some more November pictures of a spectacular flood of the River Suir.

On the following day the rain ceased and the flooded area slightly shrank and was disconnected from the river. It will eventually dry up in summer.

The river remains swollen and the walking trail flooded.

Heron doesn’t mind.

Thank you for your kind support.

Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thank you, Andrea. Yes, everything is all right, no damage done. The rainfall stopped just in time, and we had a dry week afterwards. Will see what December will bring 🙂

  1. Great photos, but I wish people would stop writing ” the river burst it’s banks”. It overflows it’s banks to be accurate! No need for words, your pictures say it all.

    1. Thank you, Resa. Yes, the flooding happens after every serious rainfall. This time half of the park was flooded; sometimes the water reaches the road. No damage this time, only fun 🙂

    1. Thank you, Francis. Reflections were amazing since the trees were standing in the water, and the light was just right. I was in awe. However, when the rain started again I preferred to leave, just in case 🙂 The ground was soaked with water.

  2. Beautiful photos, Inese. I live in flood country and ours, I’m afraid, aren’t so pretty. I hope no one was hurt by the waters and that they’ve receded without too much damage. Your camera and artist’s eye were clearly spared. ❤

    1. Thank you so much, Diana. This flood was quite tame 🙂 It is only November though. I had no idea the whole park was flooded. I didn’t see any cars in the car park, which was strange. Soon I knew why 🙂 I am so sorry that your floods are not pretty… Hope no houses are damaged this winter.
      Hope all is well. I haven’t been to your blog long time… ❤
