Flooding in Aberdeenshire
Updated: Oct 23, 2021
The beginning of 2016 saw a rapid change in the weather. It rained and rained non stop for 10 days in most parts of the UK. The result was that river levels rose to levels not previously seen. I managed to record some images of the floods during this period and turned the bad weather into a documentary project.
One of the the first photographs I took, which is below, was taken on the Don Bridge in Kemnay. It was used by Original 106, which is a local radio station, in Aberdeen
Another one of my photos was used by Northsound 1. It was taken at the Shakin' Briggie, which is between Inverurie and Kemnay.
You can see the story here
Other photographs I took, mostly in Inverurie, Kemnay and Kintore
It took several days for the floods to recede, but when they did, it became apparent just how much destruction there was. Some of it I managed to capture.
The next images were taken at the Shakin' Briggie
At the same point where I took photographs of the river in spate at the Shakin' Briggie, I took some other images after the water levels were down a little bit.
Other parts of the River Don, you can see how much debris has been washed down the river and just how high the water levels were
