I stopped by the Columbia Bottom Conservation Area for this evening's shot. Nothing dramatic about this one, instead a subtle painting of cloud and sky.

I'd packed up and was heading back to the car when the drama arrived. A fire engine, an ambulance and two rescue boats on trailers came whizzing through the park, lights flashing, before congregating by the boat ramp just adjacent to where I'd photographed the sunset.I'd not seen the St. Louis Fire Dept. water rescue craft before – it was quite exciting. I never did find out exactly what they were there for, but it sounded like there was a river boat out of gas and in difficulties.
