What do you do on a day when it is pouring rain? Photograph water, I guess. And I love this waterfall and it also kindles memories of Murphy who I still miss almost as much as I did the first day I came here for solace. Bentley is a sweet dog, but there was and ever will be only one Murph. ❤
I spent the better part of an hour getting just a little wet under the shelter of the trees making several images from different perspectives but this was the best composition with me standing in the middle of the brook. It’s only about 10″ deep at most here so not a threat to life and limb.
The rain finally started to come down as a steady shower and it was time to go. But walking along the road back to the car a bright orange delight beckoned. You know how it is with bright shiny objects and a simple mind. 🙂
This is Amanita jacksonii. So pretty, how could I pass it by. The mushrooms were somewhat under cover…I was not.
