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!

Did you get to ride with all the high ranking officials today? Nice Picture!
