The Scour

An infra-red look at the scour in the earth resulting from the collapse of the Taum Sauk Reservoir on Profit Mountain.  The IR treatment really pronounces the newly constructed reservoir as the dark monolith to  waste that it is.  The clouds were caught just perfectly as the light is approximating the same path that the 1.3 billion gallons of water took on it’s way down the Mountain.  In the foreground are young cottonwood and sycamore that have started since the flood in 2005.
