PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 29th September 2012 is ‘Dodgy’

Flooded ford

It is very dodgy to drive through a flooded ford. This particular ford swept away a car several months after I I took this picture. Luckily the driver was rescued clinging to a tree. Her car has not been found. You can see from the height markers that the water can get very high and it is usually very quick

Don’t be dodgy, please leave a comment

About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook

    1. Depends on how much rain and how long it rained for. The ford can be under water for an hour up to several days. The local council monitor the fords and close the roads when the water gets a bit higher. That doesn’t stop idiots thinking they are invincible and driving around the closed barriers and crossing the fords, to their peril.

  1. I grew up near a creek that at times would fill up after a thunderstorm like that…although you didn’t have to cross it as there were bridges. One rare time the creek went over the top of that, though.

  2. Scary! I had similar experiences driving in Arizona – looks arid and safe but when I rain came through the dry river beds frothed with water in no time!

    Have a super weekend!
