The rising water of the Mississippi River, on left, is seeping through the locks of the Spillway on right.
This Spillway protects the City of New Orleans from flooding--it is 25 miles upriver from New Orleans, so there is no danger to New Orleans.

Excellent light and composition. How scary to live below sea level!
