  4. These photos are just amazing!

    I like the ‘Red House Creek’ photo too. Seems like something from the calendars or nature photography books.

  5. Morning Sun catches my eye! All the photos are terrific. Reminds me of how much I have to look forward to when the cold winds finally stop blowing and the sun melts away our snow.

    Isn’t it funny how we are drawn to creeks? I wonder why??? It may be because water is the symbol of lifes blood, running, moving along remiding us that we are alive.

    I love the rock cairn. I have wanted one in my garden for some time. I just haven’t found the right rocks to make one.

  11. I loved them all, but the morning sun on McIntosh takes my breath away. Bridal Veil Falls is such a common name. We have two of them in our county.

  16. That was a crayfish?! I thought those critters were bigger than that, and I thought they were browner or redder. No? I remember having to dissect a crayfish in my high school biology class many years ago. I think that was the only time I ever saw a crayfish.

    Love the rock tower. But isn’t the water cold. Frozen fingers!

  18. What a beautiful place~! All your photos would look beautiful framed! And I could see the “sneer” in the crayfishes face as he gave a little bite!

    Beautiful shots! That first picture is amazing.

  20. Beautiful, beautiful series. Each image captured an element of nature’s beauty perfectly. The smooth flow of water over the falls. Beautiful. The light through the trees. Beautiful. The moss on the rocks. Beautiful. The brookie – beautiful. Excellent job.

  27. I really like the photo with the sunbeams shining through and the Red House creek photo. I guess that effect has to do with changing the speed on your camera.-I don’t know much about photography.
