    I do enjoy this one, it has some really nice color. I wonder how long these fallen trees last before the water wears them away enough to change the nature of the falls they create.

    • Thanks, Todd. I guess that the amount of debris collected, including water borne soils and other solid objects, may contribute to the longevity of the dam even if the tree itself collapses as it rots.


  3. The woods do seem to be glowing, especially in the center.

    Wow! The woodlands seem to be all aglow in this image. Is the color all about the leaves, or was it a bit of sun filtering through the canopy of leaves that caused the “glow”? I also wonder if this tree was felled by beavers, or if it naturally gave way? Nature’s dams are truly most beautiful!

    • Thanks, Lori!
      It’s a combination of both I’d say although mostly it’s about the light. I am sure it was its time to fall as there are no beavers on this brook. I guess one could have tried to get something started but I have covered a lot of the brook’s length and so far have seen no sign of beaver activity.

    The bankside debris makes me wondering if the log was washed downstream and got caught there. In any event, the caught tree allowed you to catch a wonderful image.

    • I think the debris has collected over time and surrounded the rotting stump. The stream is shallow and narrow and I don’t think anything that long could navigate the turns. So it probably was weakened by its closeness to the edge and fell, maybe during a wind event.
      Thanks, Linda.

    Beautiful! I find it amazing when trees do that. There is one nearby here that has created a whole pool behind it, how quickly it silts up.
