Vicksburg Flood 2011

I am constantly drawn toward the Mississippi River. The massive cloud bank that drifted over the city around dusk was an awesome experience. It closed in the river and felt like it was just going to come right down and settle on top of my head. The third photo in this blog is of the cloud as it passed on by, leaving me with a glorious sunset over the might Mississippi. You kind of had to be there to experience it, I guess. And, by the way, for those who think you have to have a big expensive camera to shoot good photos, well, I have to tell you that the camera doesn't matter. These photos were taken with a Canon Powershot S95, small enough to fit into my shirt pocket. To take pictures of pretty things, the main thing to do is go stand in front of pretty things!
