Deadly

This is the Saco a repeated subject this spring as the rains have made it fill up and run fast. This past weekend a woman died on it when she was canoeing and two rangers crashed into something and one is still in critical condition when they went to search for it. In starms they always say it is the water that does the most damage and takes the most lives. Makes for a beautiful sight but it can be deadly. That happened north of here up in Fryeburg Before you get to the dams etc.
Simply stunning Joan - an instant Fav. One for the Fair perhaps?

Really a pretty amazing shot - love it in b&w - perfect choice. Hard to believe it still running that hard, though I drove down by our dam today and it was still (after 3 weeks) running with all gates open. The clouds are great with the power of the water. Fav

The speed/power of the rushing water is very evident in this fab image. Love the processing too..

Brilliant capture with so much energy. I am not surprised people lost their life. Perfect in Black and White.

Had to view this on black - really excellent. A sad story to go with the image though :(

Lots of menace and high contrasts in this. Great capture.

You have captured the power of the water beautifully. Sad to hear that there have been some serious accidents and a loss of life.
