Water World

The Mississippi is dropping very slowly. This was shot yesterday from Eads Bridge at mid-river. Bank to bank, the water is probably at least a mile, maybe 2 km wide. There was still barge traffic until a few days ago. None now. The current is wicked.

Nice quietly dramatic shot. I would love to see all of your arch pictures together in one place.

Thanks for the link to your Flickr album of Arch photos. That's a book-worthy body of work you have there.

Gabriola is a small (8x2 miles) island off the east coast of Vancouver Island opposite the city of Nanaimo.

Cheers!

Superb photography. Simply a wonderful worms eye view, and the monchrome medium the perfect choice.

Water like sky, sky like water. That's the beauty of this shot. Don't call it the Mighty Mississip' for nothin'.

Amazing photo. & it even has the arch in it as added bonus. Glad the river is at least dropping.
