Collage of a few more of the shots I took that evening.  Hubby believes the circles were made from a school of fish breathing near the surface of the river.  What do you think?

Long Forgotten

Treloar, Missouri 
March 2012

A long forgotten sign, grown into a branch of a half dead tree, 
beside the Missouri river in Treloar marks the location of the
 boat dock belonging to the local Boat Club.  The attached yard stick
helps keep track of rising flood waters.
