Watery Wednesday on the Creek ~ 11-13-11

Our Latest Discovery Hidden away 
on a Back Road in Rockbridge County

Without any idea of where we were going, we headed down a dirt road, along a creek, and near the Maury River.  Buddy was driving, and I was looking for barns to post on Tricia’s Barn Charm meme. It was then that I turned to say something to Bud and saw out of his driver’s side window this gate with its reflection and those of the trees around it in the cold water.




After getting out of the car, we began nosing around the area. It was then I saw the most beautiful accumulation of texture filled rocks with light and reflections radiating everywhere (first shot). They were off to the left side of where the owners ford the creek to get to their land. I find it interesting that the color in the second shot changed when I changed my location. It is almost like these were taken on different days. You know the rest of the story. It was a quite a while later we were finally on our way to see and shoot more of the sights and scenes of Rockbridge County, VA.

  20. Very nice work and reminds me of a photography class where we were admonished: after you take the shot you saw, look around again; there may be altogether one or more great shots.

  27. It is awesome when you spot something unexpected and PERFECT like these two photos above. (but I usually have kids in the car and they aren't as thrilled as I) Oh well, they have their I-Pods to keep them busy ... :) I will have to check out Watery Wedneday.
