Today marked another warm winter day, with a high of 60F! I’m beginning to wonder if my calendar isn’t off by 3 months.
I’ve passed this creek many times over the past 6 years, and up until recently, there was a stone dam across it creating a nice little water fall. But I think Tropical Storm Irene caused it to bust open, but I still wanted to try to see if I could capture something interesting there. So today on my way to my night class, I parked near there, and fought through the briers to take some photos. I brought my tripod, as the sun had already set and I didn’t think that any hand-held shots would come out. While hopping over the minor branches, I landed in once spot that was so soft my shoe sunk 6″, to below the water line. So needless to say, I had a wet shoe/sock. But thankfully I’m wearing my Smartwool socks, so my foot never got cold, and it actually dried off before class (with a little help from my car heater)!
The photos below were tweaked a little bit in Lightroom to fix white balance and color, but not a whole lot. But enough talk, here is what you came for:
