Living here in Madison Indiana on the banks of the Ohio River you kinda get used to seeing the river rise every spring, it’s like a tradition, and like any other tradition you have to participate in you get to make your way to the river walk and watch the Big O spill out onto Vaughn drive and leave a wonderful variety of debris and garbage all along the length of the river front.
I walked down tonight with my wife and son to take part in said tradition and found out exactly what I thought I would find…. lots of debris and garbage !!
I guess it is kinda cool to see and it doesn’t get this high every year but when I walk along the banks all I think about is “who is going to clean this mess up” ? Is this a sign I am getting old ?
Ok all kidding aside this is a hell of a lot of water flowing thru here, nothing like the Japanese Tsunami but still really impressive to witness, my son got quite a few shots of it and of course I was too lazy to carry my camera with me so I guess you will have to just take my word for it.
I did go down the other day and got some shots with the trees that are usually way up on the bank but were partially submerged and made for a rather interesting comp. The river was covered in fog and it made for a great b&w conversion.
Maybe tomorrow I will actually carry my camera down there and get some pics to share with you or I can just rely on my son to do the heavy lifting a let him take care of his old man 😉
Well anyway I hope you have a great weekend and for best viewing you can click on the image for the bigger size !!
