The rising waters

During a flood in York

This is another shot taken on slide film using the Bronica ETRS. It was taken during one of York's many small floods that affected areas down by the river. I'm not sure about the date but i think it could be around October 2000, when North Yorkshire received a massive amount of water over the space of a couple of weeks.

Certain local towns like Malton and Norton, had some of the worse flooding the town had ever experienced with millions of pounds worth of damage caused to businesses and housing by rising river levels. Soon afterwards, a large scale flood defence system was built costing millions of pounds.
