Ball Field Under Water
29-JUN-2011 copyright Elizabeth Bickel

Ball Field Under Water

The perspective does not begin to show the scope of the flooding. Real life, large expanses seem strangely seem small in a photograph.
The Missouri River is in the center of the frame. At the top third is massive, field flooding stemming from a breeched levee. Just 3 days ago, the lower part of the image (the baseball field) looked like this http://www.pbase.com/britestar/image/135425366.
Now that it is here, the flooding has happened very fast. From the gallery http://www.pbase.com/britestar/2011_flood_of_the_century
