The Bluff, as it is called by the locals, is one of
my favorite places to photograph.
Just 10 days ago,
I made a quick trip over to find some peace and reflection time,
so easily found on this spot.
Don't let the photo deceive you....
I am standing 200 feet above the river.
There is a sharp drop-down.
Less than a week later, Harvey hit the coast of Texas,
dumping some 52 inches of rain near here.
Today the road was finally opened
so I might come back and photograph the changes.
Monday, the river crested at 54 feet, leaving a path of destruction behind.
You can see one of the bridges in the far distance,
on the upper right hand side.
Today, that bridge is still shut down.
Here is a link to show some aerial views.
This is what swift moving water can do.
I photographed for awhile....
but it made me so sick,
I had to stop and return home.
My home, which is about 20 miles away on higher ground,
had 4 straight days of rain, day and night, along with very strong winds...
Nothing to complain about...
Thankful is what I am today.
