We're blessed to have a few small creeks within a few minutes' drive. A couple of years ago we had such a dry summer that one of these creeks went completely dry (the same year we could climb to the bottom of our 5m/15ft deep well). With the exception of a couple of storms it's been fairly dry again this summer and so there wasn't much water running in this creek again. I decided to grab some rubber boots and take a short walk up the creek.
All the photos were made with a 10-22mm lens, aperture at f11 and ISO800, with shutter speeds of 1/125 sec (1st photo) and 1/20 sec for the other 2.
the water was fairly shallow
I discovered these beautiful wildflowers along the stream - no idea what they might be
