Great theme Al!
My wife is on duty at the weekend and I got some ideas how I'll spend the time now...

Regards

Welcome to the 541st edition of the Collective Shoot; this week the theme is whatever you can find around your nearest river, be it a tiny creek or a raging torrent.

There are fishermen:

Boats, floating and otherwise:

The occasional warship:



Plus bridges:

And even the occasional postbox:

I'm sure you can find much more :D
Interesting theme Al, and great examples!

This small creek is a tributary of Sinking Creek in Giles County, VA. The photo is from the Appalachian Trail bridge near Level Green Church.

You see near the bottom of the picture the remains of an old beaver dam. At one time it flooded the entire area there (where the grass is matted). This necessitated the construction of a walkway and foot bridge to keep hikers out of the water.

Do you see the same dryness that we see here, with water levels low for streams, ponds, and lakes?

Not extremely so, but it has been pretty dry this winter. We've had only about 7-10 inches of snow this winter. Total liquid precipitation for February was 1.0 inches, and we've only had about 1.5 inches so far in March.

We have no real rivers in our county, but there are two small streams that cross my farm. The winter storms were rough on some of the trees lining the banks – here’s a quick shot of damage near the confluence of the streams.

Nice shot Bob. The trees do look pretty battered.

While out along my stream today, I decided to take advantage of the situation and try a 3-D image. This version requires the red and cyan glasses. My apologies to those who don’t have the glasses – I attempted to create a side-by-side version but my eyes were not cooperating and I couldn’t make any necessary adjustments. [I will post the side-by-side version if there is any interest.]

Thanks guys

My eyes seem to be working better this morning, and the side=by=side version is working for me. [center you vision on the image pair; cross your eyes; and relax]
