The Beautiful, Ugly Flood

For a month at least, Lake Champlain in Vermont has been flooding, wrecking camps, damaging homes and roads, and just causing misery and annoyance.

The water isn't receding fast, so this will go on for awhile.

I took the photo in this post two days ago at Burlington, Vermont's flooded Perkins Pier. It's sad that the park there is under water and wrecked, but I do like the photo. The oddly bright colors, the reflections and the misty background are strangly pretty, even though nobody is happy the flood is continuing.
