Great shot!

And here it comes. There is a lot of energy in that water. Somehow, I feel this can't be good. It's a very good photo though.

Still hoping that you guys don't get flooded too badly!

Very nice Coleen, I didn't make it for the opening, I was counting on you for pictures.

The ed of the crane is so brilliant. Wonderful depth to this composition. Rising steadily I suppose.

It has been fascinating to follow this series.

quite a dramatic sight, all that rushing water must have been noisy too.
Thanks for posting these, I was interested in seeing what the opening of the Spillway would be like.

Almost looks like a NASA launch site across the river there. Looks like record levels above you in Memphis, hope all goes well!
