One of the many things that turned up when they drained Capitol Lake recently.

See the world in a different light over at The Monochrome Weekend.

  2. AB Says:

    Great composition.

  3. Lynette Says:

    Gosh, it looks a lot like a whitewall tire, doesn't it? Nasty thing for someone to do, though, throw it into the lake. Nasty.

  4. Draining is full of not so nice surprises.

  5. Hilda Says:

    Sigh. Always…

    But wow, they weren't kidding about draining the lake, were they? I find it absolutely amazing. I can't even imagine how it was done.

  6. Lois Says:

    Fabulous shot, especially in black and white. There is no telling what else they will find! When our lake drained the last time, there was a community clean up organized and all kinds of stuff was picked up.

  7. Yolanda Says:

    Love this shot! There's a bit of reflection, mud, and the unlikely existence of the tire. Nice capture of the not-so-nice litter. Like that it is in b/w too!

  8. brian stout: I'm guessing it'd be pretty chewy too. :-)

    Lois: That's a wonderful idea. I don't know if they performed any cleanup this time or not. I know their main objective was to back fill it with saltwater to kill those nasty mud snails.

    Thanks to everyone!

    Ciel said it perfectly!

    And yes, I'll show pix from around Coffenbury Lake - when it stops raining and the mud dries up a bit. Unless I can find some in the archives.

  10. Rob Says:

    Amazing the things we find thrown out below the surface.

  11. what a muddy mess & what an idiot to throw that in a lake!

  12. btw, why did they drain Capitol Lake? I scrolled down a ways to see if I could find a story about it, but didn't see one.

    Very pretty.
