Rushing Waters

Two days after the heavy rains with a nice layer of clouds to diffuse the light is usually the best time to photograph the creek. Here's one of today's efforts.

I photographed this same spot a few days later.

    Damn... this is sooo cool David!! It was a very similar shot that you posted a couple of months ago that brought me to your stream for the first time. Brilliant!!!

    Thanks Paul :)
    We've had a lot of rain recently (two days ago we had 9 inches over about 36 hours). Where I was standing for this shot would have been in the middle of the floodwaters. Waiting a couple of days for it to subside a bit pays off (and as an added bonus, the water is no longer brown).

    Looks like we're about to get some more too - quite dark outside right now.
    Indeed it has - my water tanks are full again.

    It sounds like it's been very wet over there! Surprisingly, a lot of the waterfalls I've been to here in the UK haven't been running at full strength, because it hasn't actually rained much recently. The sun actually comes out from behind the clouds! It's weird. :)
