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!
as time goes by…

Well, I’m back in Florida! It seems like only yesterday that I was in the sunshine state. Although that moniker leaves a little to be desired as I have been fighting the wind and the rain since I arrived. I needed to fly down so I could help my Mom drive back to New York. I decided to spend a few days exploring the Treasure Coast and maybe even a small stop at Disney before I head over to my Mom’s place.
The last time I explored the East Coast of FL I made it as far as Jupiter. This time I booked a room at Juno Beach as I have seen some amazing pics from this area. Even though the weather has not been cooperating I have done a few location scouting for the next time I can make it down this far along the coast. My first morning was spent fighting the wind and ocean spray to grab some images of Juno Beach Pier. This one is during the morning blue hour about forty minutes before the official sunrise.

West Canada Creek
Are you the rock or the water? Me? I tend to be water, at least now I am, which I am positive is a trait I learned over the years. I think if you can be the water you will make your way through life a little easier. Who knows, maybe it is all in my head. Maybe I think I am the water but in reality people see me as the rock. I wonder if I should take a poll?
