On Thursday February 2nd 2012 I went to the Chickamauga Dam in Chattanooga Tennessee. I was hoping that the water was still flowing through the spillways. I made a spillway picture there earlier this winter. The day I made that picture most of the spillways were open. On this day they were all open. What a powerful display!
With these pictures I was trying to capture the power of the water and the peaceful grace of the Seagulls flying just above all the turmoil. I also liked the way the morning sun looked and the patterns of light and shadow on the dam.
Chickamauga Dam Spillways and Three Seagulls
This next one was taken only a moment later. I cropped this one a little more and you can really see just how rough the water is below the spillways. I couldn’t decide which photo to share here so I ended up posting both of them.

It’s easier to see the Seagulls if you click on the images and view the full size versions.
