Out and about on the first clear day after two weeks of steady rain (we've had beautiful rains this season).

Conn Dam spillway.

We've gotten some very good rain this season (including about 10+ inches over the last week or so) enough that the spillway at Conn Dam is running strong. The overflow hits a concrete barrier at the foot of the spillway and creates a kind of boiling mushroom of water. It used to be an almost yearly occurrence when I was a kid back in the 60's-70's, but the last time it occurred was back in 2005. Conn Dam creates Lake Hennessy, which sits in the hills on the eastern side of the Napa Valley just east of Rutherford.

This gives you an idea of how the spillway sits in relation to everything else:

I tried to get a shot from directly in front, where there were no trees, but the only vantage point kept getting swamped with a very heavy mist. I didn't want to get my camera soaked, soooo.... (not sure how good the weather sealing is on this camera body and lens).

This link goes to a video of the spillway that someone posted to fb a couple of days ago. Worth a look (37 seconds).
