    • Thank you, Ken. When Janet and I go Jelks Preserve, we spend a lot of time at this stream. Most of my shots don’t turn out because of leaves that intrude into the composition. But sometimes I get lucky, and sometimes I’m able to salvage a shot with a square crop.

    • Thank you, Deanna. Here’s the county page on Jelks Preserve: The directions say “merge” onto North River Road, but they should say, “Turn right onto North River Road.” To get to the part of the stream where I took this photograph, go to your left as soon as you walk past the gate, or maybe a little past the big sign with the map. It’s not an official path. Good luck!

  3. So many contrasting ripples – this has so much character in it, Linda

    • Thank you, Andy. The little disturbance in the upper left corner kept me fascinated for many many shots. And the reflection of that huge fern leaf added a lot to the scene, I think. Glad one of my attempts turned out.

    • Thank you, Harrie. I haven’t been to this stream in a while; it’s time to go back.
