Thank you for your interest in my pictures. I live in Burlington, Iowa, USA, on the Mississippi River in the southeastern part of Iowa, a community of about 30,000 people in the middle of the United States. With the state of Illinois just across the river, it is a mostly agricultural economy, with lots of smaller businesses and industry, a large regional medical center and a community college. The area is blessed with lots of people involved in and interested in the Arts. Settled in the 1830's mainly by German and Irish immigrants, it is the namesake of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad. I am happy to share views especially of my hometown with the Panoramio Community, just as I enjoy seeing the people, places and things that are important to my new friends from around the world. Hopefully this can lead to better understanding and communication with peoples around the world we share. Some of my photos also are included in a blog set up for a writing group I belong to, The Society of Great River Poets, http://greatriverpoets.blogspot.com/

Bardzo ładnie pokazany zachód słońca. LIKE. Pozdrawiam, Krystyna:)

If you look at street level view on Google Maps, you can see how this view would normally look. The river goes where it wants to.

Two blocks of street closed off. Main line of BNSF railroad goes through here.

Most of the water on outside of barrier is actually from pumps in basements of buildings further to the right. New barriers much faster than sandbags.

Protective barriers keep water out of building, but it's an island.

MÜKEMMEL FOTOĞRAF,TEBRİKLER.

Gotcha'....there Rod'.........She was just an unknown passing young student.....trying desperately to avoid my lens and leering, ugly mug......hence - hurriedly stepping out, before the lift is fully down..../.....Keep good and all the best from... Dave.

Thanks.....'Rod'....good to hear from you..........I hope that all is mighty fine.../...Dave..UK.

When Michael Palin did his series, Around the World in 80 Days, he came through Burlington on Amtrak, but basically only showed crossing the Mississippi River on the bridge since replaced.

From my understanding, for years all trains blew their whistles when they passed by on the mainline railroad tracks situated nearby.
