Rising Creek (One Word Photo Challenge-Flood)

Rising Creek

Rising Creek

I live near Mudlick Creek and when it rains a lot the water grows muddy and the creek rises. During a heavy rain, the creek will overflow its banks and flood the road nearby, forcing me to take an alternate route. In due time, the water will subside, returning to the comfort of its creek bed.

I am posting this photo for JNW’s One Word Photo Challenge-Flood. Years ago, I actually experienced a big, devastating flood in my town and don’t care to experience another.

I thought the photo might be effective in black and white, but I miss the muddy brown of the water. Without the detail, I think the photo may seem bland. What do you think?

  1. Both are quite nice, but I do prefer the detail of the color below the water. I’m sorry you had to experience the devastation of a flood. I hope all turned out alright in the end and that you never experience another.
