West Canada Creek

Saturday was an interesting day. Overcast, temps hovering above freezing but rather calm. As the morning wore on the sun tried to make an appearance and there would be pockets of sunshine. It was the perfect day to go play in the creek!

I waited until almost lunch time hoping to combine the trip to the creek with a visit to foothills Mercantile, the consignment store where I found some of my oil cans. I was trying to find another one or maybe an old can of oil. I’m thinking it would be cool to have some cans to use as background for the images. I didn’t find any cans of oil but I did pick up another oil can. More on that later…

I did have a good time playing in the West Canada Creek. The flow of water was not so much as to obscure any dynamic action in the water. I didn’t want a trickle but a heavy volume is almost as bad as very little water. I used my telephoto lens to capture some great detail out in the middle of the creek. I think I spent an hour exploring both sides around the Morgan’s Mill Dam area in Trenton Falls. It was a good day!

  1. I got a shot sort of like this at Niagara Falls this past summer. I’m not sure how I got it, I should go study what the settings were. i was really pleased with it though, much like I really like this one.

    • Thanks Dawn. With fast moving water you really only need a shutter speed around 1/8th of a second to blur the water. On bright days I will use a filter to allow me to get the speed I want.
