Spring Floods

life_in_maine_spring_floodsFrom Tuesday to Wednesday last week, a huge storm passed through Maine. With the snow melt and the saturated ground, water has few places to go. Hallowell, a small town on the Kennebec River, was one of the places effected. For three consecutive evenings from the river cresting on Wednesday, I photographed the receding water. During the summer, the wharf at the edge of the river is eight to ten feet above the water. Click on the image for a larger view.
