January Photo a Day 2013: Water

Day 11. Water: Perhaps it’s the beach, a river, water in a glass, the bath {keep it PG!} or even the rain.

Friday found us heading out on a road trip…We woke to a beautiful clear cool morning.  We packed the truck, loaded the dogs and headed out…Our day was filled with visions of water in many forms…we saw clouds, mist, rain, swollen rivers, fog and downpours!

Leaving Houston, Texas we crossed over the ship channel bridge and the San Jacinto River.

About half way through the State of Louisiana we crossed the Atchafalaya River Basin. We were starting to catch up with the weather front that had dumped more than 9″ of rain in the area.

Once arriving in Baton Rouge, Louisiana we headed East on I-12…We caught the front.

On any given day this would be a creek bed with a trickle of water…One creek overflowed and met up with the next creek for miles and miles.  The water was swift and menacing.

We had a break in the rain on Saturday but on Sunday it was back with a vengeance as we headed back West…

Water, water every where!

What do the prompts mean?

There are no rules when playing along with photo a day, you can be creative as you like! Interpret the prompt as you please. For those that need a little help, some more suggested details about each prompt are below.

12. Surprise: I love when I stumble across coins when I’m walking. It’s a lovely surprise. That would be a lucky photo for me. Can you think of a way to capture surprise?
13. Circle: Look as you go about today for things shaped in circles. Is it the tyres on a bus? A big sign? Or something else?
14. Something yellow: Find something yellow in your travels today and take a photo.

This was the first daylily to bloom in our garden. 

Daylily!!!

This was quite possibly the last time we had rain.

What a wonderful combination!
