El río Mississippi inunda el sur de Estados Unidos y las agencias envían impresionantes imágenes de las tierras y campos cubiertos de agua. Os recomiendo las completas ediciones de In Focus y de The Big Picture sobre esta última riada. Saltan a la vista los muros que se levantaron al rededor de las casas creando una pequeña isla entre el agua del rio más caudaloso de los USA. No es la priemra vez que os muestro en La Mesa de Luz fotos de inundaciones como la vivida en Filipinas en septiembre de 2009. Pero hoy os presento una serie de imágenes aéreas que muestran la dramática inundación desde otro punto de vista muy pictórico. Fotos aéreas que muestran lo que podría ser un cuadro abstracto pintado por la naturaleza utilizando los campos de Mississippi como lienzo. Espero que las disfrutéis.
