Boonville Bottoms

Boonville Bottoms

Looking across the muddy Missouri River from the town of Boonville.
The river bottoms are flat and fairly featureless, but provide some interesting subject matter in terms of the bands of color, and the sense of space. There aren't many "long views" in Missouri, the kind that are so plentiful out west, so I enjoy looking out over the bottomlands.
