This film of still images by Chris Carruth depicts scenes from the first day of the 2013 flood in Boulder, Colorado. The audio is from the sounds of Boulder Creek, at the base of Boulder Canyon, still flowing much higher and faster than normal nearly a week after the flooding.
Carruth, a graduate of the CU ATLAS Institute (2013) is an avid photographer with a passion for covering environmental issues.
Carruth lives and works in Boulder, and spent most of the floods on a friend’s couch, waiting for the water in his basement to subside.
