Patty - a sad reminder of the frailty of life, and the power of the natural world...
(Rangers have to deal with these situations far too often!)
Great capture of that awesome power! I especially like the mood and strength of the second shot.

Thanks, Rodney, mole and Roy.

Is that how you ended up in Dallas, Roy? Because of Katrina? I do genealogy and this will be one of those missing links for many families in the future trying to figure out where someone went to when they lost their home.

Great images Patty. I also am especially taken by the second image. I spent Sunday through Tuesday in Maine and the tragic story of the girl at Acadia National Park was the lead story for all the news broadcasts. I've been to Acadia several times and the view of the waves crashing on to the rocks at Thunder Hole is truly spectacular. I can understand why the people were so close to the water's edge -- the huge waves must have been spectacular. But unfortunately, viewing this awesome scene had a terribly sad ending.

Thanks, mtnman. As you'll notice, me the chicken, was standing behind the 3 or 4 foot wall of rocks on the right to take pictures. But, there were some people standing up on that rock I was using as a buffer between me and the water.
