Winter Stream

This little stream is across the road from my home. It usually dries up at some point in the summer, but flows and never completely freezes in the winter. I took this photo a few weeks ago on a foggy day. Today it still looks much the same. Spring has not yet arrived in the Hudson Valley, NY.

In response to the Photography 101 prompt “water” and to day one of the Five Days Challenge presented to me by Amy from Snapshots, Snippets and Scribbles. I’ll include the details in my next post.

  1. I really like the photo, especially the contrast of the sky’s color to the rest of the photo, and the light behind the trees in the center of the background. Of course, the stream is the center of attention in the picture. Beautiful. 🙂

    With all of the snow this year and probably more on the way, spring can’t come soon enough for me.

    1. Thank you! I really liked the subtle glow in the sky that day. I think it was because of the fog. I tried to do it justice in the photo by using the curves tool in Gimp which is the photo editing program that I use.
      We’ll be having more snow yet again tonight. I’m hoping to get out on my snowshoes to enjoy it, but might not get the chance until next week and who knows what the weather will be then. It is March after all! The big thaw is coming!

        1. Thank you! You can download gimp at its official site It’s opensource, free and worth a try. There’s a lot you can do with it, I haven’t even explored half of it, though there are a number of different tutorials online.
