misty creek



(click on image to view full size)

This is Sand Creek, about a mile downstream from my house. The undulating pattern of ice on the edge caught my eye last night as I was driving home, so this morning I did a quick drive by photo. The creek is ditched and way too straight in this section, but the pattern in the ice shows that water does not want to flow in a straight line.

By the way, Misty Creek was the name of the first bluegrass band I played in. Well, I guess it was the only one. So far.

You must be tired of all the snow already, but it sure makes everything so soft and beautiful, Deb. That's a serene scene, and probably very, very quiet. Lovely.

What is that in the water about half way down behind the large shelf of ice on the right?

Deb said...

RD- I am getting tired of the snow, lovely as it is, but we have a lot of melting before the ground is bare, and melting time ain't pretty!

HS- I don't know; it might be a few sticks left from a beaver dam or something. I'll have to look at the photo up close tomorrow when I'm at work.

We, too, have had enough snow. Just as things were starting to warm up and melt, it snowed again yesterday. Thankfully, much of it has melted off already.

Beautiful picture.

Moi- come to Minnesota, except for the mosquitoes and the deer ticks you'll love it! But you'll have to go off the beaten path to see sights like this.
