Testing, Testing, One.......Two.....April 1, 2008

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers did a testing of the equipment and manpower used to open the locks of the Spillway this morning. Through the opening made as they lifted out the pine needles you can see the manufacturing plant located across the River.
The swollen River rushed into the Spillway with a magnificent sound as if to say to the bystanders "here I am". It is siphoning off at 250 cfs--enough power to run a few generating plants and save us some money.

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Indeed a very nice shot! A great portrayal of opening the bays, and love the plant in the background, good scene selection. CC v
