Many readers who visit my blog regularly will know that just over a couple of weeks ago we had quite a bit of flooding in the area. The Ohio River crested six feet above flood stage in some areas. This is one of the images I took during that week. Thankfully I wasn't affected in any way.
I was standing in a grocery store parking lot above this tree full of red berries looking down over the embankment and zoomed in on the tree. Its trunk is probably about four feet under water. It had been planted on a sloped bank by the street.
I really like the late afternoon sunlight glistening on the water and reflecting the blue sky of that afternoon as well as the two shades of water. The clearer water is over where the actual street is buried underneath. The brick wall in the background separates the street from a local college stadium.
The river has been back to normal, we've had snow as recent as last Thursday night and we're hoping for temperatures in the mid seventies today. I so hope that weatherman is right!
