The distinctive yellow Duck Tour amphibious vehicle in Windsor.

All Aboard the Windsor Duck Tour – 29 June 2014

There’s a new beast lurking in the waters around historic Windsor. Big and bright yellow, it’s not exactly difficult to spot – everywhere it goes, it attracts the attention of the people it passes. And not just when it’s on the Thames, but when it’s on the land too; it can both swim and crawl.

Temporary signs and fencing prevented cars from driving down the flooded lower road.

Cookham Floods (with pictures) – 11 January 2014

Whatever age you are, there’s nothing more curious than a speed-limit signpost, only its top still dry. The white painted road-markings, which dive down beneath the water-line, are the subject of many a photograph. For me, though, it’s the impossible image of all of this water, somehow made possible by a complex combination of currents and clouds.
