I almost hate to say the word "flooded" as there is way too much flooding up here in the midwest.
I wish the best to anybody dealing with Mother Nature's fury!

This flower was on the edge of the water. The background was actually water which now looks like sky.

Flood filter applied - Digital Darkroom
