The downtown Dallas skyline and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge rise over the Trinity River, which was close to 40 feet, the level defined as "major" flood stage, on Sunday evening. The last time the Trinity River rose to 40 feet was June 28, 2007, when it crested at 40.25 feet.

The Trinity River is showing us all how dangerously beautiful it can be since the Texas rains have flooded the it past the 40-foot major flood stage for the first time since 2007. 

How North Texans really feel about the weather

Dallas photographers flocked to the waters to capture the picturesque reflections of downtown in the water and then share them on social media. Robert Wilonsky collected a number of videos produced over the weekend about the Trinity and we have now begun a collection of some of the best photos shared on social media. 

As much as we love these photos, please remember to stay safe!

Leading us off, this shot from Jeremy McKane, a Dallas-based fine art photographer, who said he's been waiting for the flood stage to hit above 40 so he could make Dallas look like it had a river the size of the Thames:
