Complicated Dam photos

The Pit River in northeastern California spills over the Pit 4 Dam.

What is it about water flowing over dams? We have a long complicated relationship with dams, especially along the Pit River. Really complicated. Complicated like an evening soap opera plot. Complicated like a classic love/hate triangle. Complicated like the fine print on a form at the doctor's office. Complicated in ways we still don't really understand. Suffice it to say, we find ourselves attracted to dams flowing water when we are out making photos. Recently, the Pit 4 Dam was spilling water as we were out looking at the proverbial "stuff".  We had to stop and make some pictures. Color pictures. Abstract pictures. Monotone pictures. Simple pictures. Complicated pictures. Way tooooo many pictures. There was much groaning at the computer monitor when we saw how many pictures. So we winnowed them down to a smaller number. Hope you enjoy them, we do, but the reasons are complicated.
