Pinkie Pie at the Lucky Peak Dam Rooster Tail by Framwinkle Pinkie Pie at the Lucky Peak Dam Rooster Tail by Framwinkle
This is a picture I took of the Rooster Tail at Lucky Peak Dam, just a bit east of Boise, Idaho, with Pinkie Pie in the foreground. The Rooster Tail was designed to dissipate the energy of the water coming out of the dam to help prevent erosion, and used to be a near daily occurrence until the power plant was installed. Now they only do it a couple days a year for show if it's a high water year, which it is this year. It's quite impressive in person, with the water shooting over 100 feet into the air.

If you're interested, I have a video on YouTube from a few different vantage points. youtu.be/exIOtYSgEnI

This is one of the pictures I'm submitting to this year's Ponies Around the World event on Equestria Daily.

Thank you! The lighting was a bit tricky, because it was partly cloudy, and I had to wait for a time when both Pinkie and the Rooster Tail were in sun so you'd see more of the detail in the water. Making it more complicated were all the other people trying to get the same shot, so I had to wait for them to get out of the way, too.
