Love those exquisite red crosses!
That's a lot of water moving all at once. :shock:
Was there a water wheel on the building in the third pic? Wondering if it went where the circular cutout is in the bottom right corner of the building.
The force of water never ceases to amaze me. I am guessing that this is a river and not a town being flooded. Maybe explore a lower angle with a long lens.
That's better, I can now see some terrific shots.
The first one is amazing, so powerful!
So what's the story behind these pics?
These photos were taken after 5 or 6 days of rain. The first 4 were taken in Newmarket NH. which is an old mill town. The river is funneled between the stone factory buildings and can not overflow. There was an incredible amount of power flowing in the river. It was making the ground shake. The covered walkway between the factories looked like it was going to be washed away, but it held strong.
The 5th photo is of Rochester, NH. Not nearly as much water here.
The 6th photo is the hydro dam in Dover, NH. It was making a considerable amount of power on this day.
Wow, these remind me of the Elbe floods in my country in August 2002, when indeed whole bridges and houses were washed away by the masses of water at the time.
I find these quite frightening and it seems like I even HEAR the rushing water while looking at them...
