An autumn morning walk along Roberts Creek in Cliff Gilker Park yielded this photo.
The various sounds the creek makes as it travels from the mountains to the sea are sweeter than any tones I can coax from my mandolin. It roars over falls, splashes over rocks and meanders through pools. This picture attempts to capture those sounds in one image.
I just couldn’t seem to sneak up close to this guy. Whenever I got within 20 feet he took off!! This picture and the one below were taken this morning. There were two herons, two eagles, an osprey and many ducks, spamhawks (seagulls) and crows.
I managed to snap this pic as the eagle took off and cropped the eagle out of a far larger area of sky. . I think I need a better telephoto lense.
Out for a walk on the beach today I got lost in the textures of this old gnarled stump. This stump has been exposed to the wind, rain and salt air for years and has a weathered wisdom about it.
This creek on Cypress mountain were still unfrozen on our trip there on Monday….after the cold temperatures of the last couple of days thisw little creek is probably covered in snow.
