A Raging River

LA River at Fletcher

My husband Tom took this picture at the height of the storm on Wed (1/20).  I find it alive and exciting; also a damn good photo, made seamlessly from four different photos. For those of you unfamiliar with the LA River, the current is usually a meek mouse of a tributary, not this raging lion. The islands that sometimes serve as campgrounds for LA's homeless are completely under water, and the ducks and herons have flown to safety (but where I wonder?). You can find more of Tom's photos at his flickr account:


  1. GREAT photo, Tom! It's so nice to see our river actually flowing and in such a dramatic way!

  2. amazing image. And thanks for the link to Tom's photos.

  3. This is a masterful photo... and belongs in a museum collection. Tom, this is awesome!
