Muddy Creek

Posted by

This is literally called "Muddy Creek," and so it was. The water was very high.

FORGOT TO MENTION - The workshop today is Photoshop CS4 for "Photographers." Glad that we won't be dealing with the non-applicable stuff.

Wow. That is just gorgeous. The uniform colors, the lines of light and reflection, and the canopy above.

I imagine the photographer as a fisherman who has changed the cane through the machine ... put in cold water and transparent looking for the best view! He succeeded with complete success! A perspective that excites my imagination! Why not be a smooth and shiny golden road? Walk in it. middle of a beautiful grove. Towards a perfect valley to rest! A valley that is not perfect but that is sensed. A picture perfect friend Jack! Many kisses!

Mud gives that super tone to the water, then. Splendor of the palette, glittering one*

Muddy perhaps, but so golden against the green, moss-covered trees.
Nice sighting!

A very warm, sun drenched look Jack. Did you use a filter or is that just the natural light?

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of this view down the creek. It's interesting how the "chaotic" look of the brush along the banks casts such straight lines of shadows across the surface of the water.

L O V E it!!!
