    Just some shots from around my village - by no means the worst place hit, but the aftermath is pretty bad - houses pumped etc and a caravan site totally wiped out.

    That looks bad, all right! Whoa. I so feel for you all!
    We have a little pump staying on the lower part of our verandah at all times this summer and have needed it several times by now to keep our cellar from getting flooded (with success, but that is also because we have built a little "wall" in front of the first step down of the outside staircase), but nothing has ever been this bad for us.

    My favourite (if scenes like this can be "favourite" - but photographywise, you know) photo is 6. He looks like he is working so hard!

    That one followed by 2! Whoa.

    :( How very sad, nature can be very cruel. Nice job on the photos, they have a great emotion to them.

    Well done! The first 2 shots really convey the havoc that the high waters created.

    A quick add to the photos: The scene of many of the houses in the area, with many of their ground floors underwater, there was no other option but to remove all the damaged furniture.

    nice series, 1,2 and 7 are my favorites. I thought no 7 was a selective coloring job at first look. Really sharp images and the contrast and balace in 1 and 2 are perfect. Very sad pictures though.
