I have to thank my son for the inspiration for today’s shots. He had asked me earlier if I had seen the small brook yet, because it was quite scenic; he had seen it on one of his walks in the area and I hadn’t been out that way yet. I hadn’t had an opportunity to get the camera out today - it was guys’ day out for a round of golf which was followed by hours of fun in the water afterward. So after dinner this evening, and the ‘obligatory’ walk into town for an ice cream treat with most of the family, I grabbed the tripod and camera and made my way over to it before dusk set in.
While it was certainly scenic from the dirt road, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to make my way through the undergrowth to follow the brook downstream a little. I had been sure to ‘bathe’ myself in mosquito repellent since the welts all over my body attested to the fact that they had already feasted on me earlier in the week. And while they swarmed all around me, the repellent held them at bay. I think the views from just a little off the beaten path were worth the bushwhacking required.
