Drowning trees

In a dramatic (and temporary) departure from my Hillwood Estate gallery, this was the Potomac River on Saturday at Great Falls Park, about a 20-minute drive from DC. We had had heavy rainfall for the last six days, and the river had reached flood stage, cresting on Sunday.

Since we drove out there just to see the state of the river as a lot of people did because the park was packed -- Ill be posting a few more pictures of it.

The force of nature has been so well captured with the expectation of the damage that can follow with the amount of rain you had and the ensuing raging floodwaters...V

I can almost feel the mist and hear the power of the rushing water. Great capture, Helen. V
