Picture of the Week: Texas Flood

In case you haven’t read the news, Texas has had a bit of rain lately. And I mean “bit of rain” in the sense that the Burj Khalifa is “kind of tall”.

The Trinity River floodplain runs south of downtown Dallas and typically is nothing more than a greenbelt with parks, walkways, and a small trickle of water. Right now it’s currently at 40 feet! This has kept photographers like me busy, because it’s not every day you can get a skyline shot of downtown with water in it!  So that’s the Picture of the Week this week, downtown Dallas framed with water.

For the photographers: This was shot from a tripod at 1/15 second exposure, f8, ISO 100.  I added a graduated filter to the bottom in Lightroom to darken the water and added just a tinge of blue to the sky using another graduated filter.

  1. I would love a before and after of this. The shot is beautiful though the flood is horrible for all the people. 🙁
