Low Water Event 2001

October 27th, 2016

For years I've had a selection of about 20 pictures available for viewing on the internet from the Lake Tillery flood gate testing of 2001. Now I've uploaded almost all the pictures I took of this extreme event to Google Photos. At this time I'm not bothering to edit all the new uploads. Be prepared for exposure issues and horizon tilting.

The flood gate testing was an extreme low water event for Lake Tillery in the fall of 2001. It allowed us to see the old ferry landing exposed and the remains of the ferry itself. Both of which are normally under water. I have a picture of my father standing at the ferry his grandfather owned and his father grew up operating.

Taken with my first digital camera, a 2 megapixel Kodak DC3400 Zoom.
