This is the stream between 6th and 5th lakes, and as you can see, it's moving fast.
It makes you feel cool just to watch, and it, the place is totally in the shade too. I also found this shape if the water and I liked it.
This is about 1/2 way through. I like trying to figure out how to do rushing water. If I can improve each time, I don't expect to see miracles, just good work.
Here is where I was, I didn't take a finished photo.
Yesterday also 90F & sunny
The beaver pond, early afternoon, still hot and sunny, I vacillated between picking the spot on the top of the hill, (more pleasant to work in) or the place next to the hill (with the hill in view, (not as pleasant, but a better picture, and you can see where I chose. This is a view of Ned's rock, and the light was bright!
Here is the first 45 minutes or so.
This is pretty close to finished.
Here they are together.
Here I was, on a sponge! The "land" is really just a bog-like growth that you squish into. Buggy. I found a bit of shade.
