In addition to the photos above, which were voted on by the members of Picture Picks, the photographer picking the theme selects a Best of Theme. Eagle Finegan's Tropical Storm Something was picked by Andy Laighleis for best of theme as well as being tied for third place.
Laighleis wrote, "Although the photo shows what some would consider the worst effect of water which is destruction, it does show the impact of moving water. What we tend to forget is that the land in the central part of the US would not be as fertile if it weren’t for the occasional flooding in the along the major rivers in that part of the country."
