That was some flood. Not sure where this is, but midwest perhaps. I'm trying to remember all the places it rained and rained. Have a great WW. :)

Amazing. Nature is a powerful force. Doesn't always take long for a landscape to be transformed.

Bernie said...

Amazing photos. We had some floods here in early June in Australia. It is amazing what force water really has...

Our WW is up as well if you want to stop by...

I'm usually never at a loss of words... but all I can say is UNREAL. UNREAL.

I hope everyone in your family and your friends were not hurt in the flood.

Really great photos.

Wow.

Yes, I painted them and am, in fact, having a contest to give away one custom painting--I paint from digital photos.

That's incredible! It doesn't even look like the same place. Isn't truly remarkable how the vegetation and everything is able to come back after such devastation?

Rene Perez said...

Wow.. really makes you think. Everything just covered in water.

Wow, that is amazing. It is hard to imagine how the water can take over such a vast area, but there it is. It's like a sea rising out of nowhere. Thank you for sharing.

Whoa! That is amazing! I thought it must be a lake that just was raised due to the floods, but that is a LOT of flooding!
