Two Miscellaneous Nature Photos

This past Saturday late afternoon and evening I did some hiking in Tinicum and Bridgeton Townships, Bucks County, Pennsylvania near Upper Black Eddy. It was a mostly cloudy and windy day just after a big rain storm Friday night into Saturday morning. People tell me that during that time period we got two inches of rain.


This is Rapp Creek. This particular location is inside of some state game land. The creek couldn't hardly be any fuller.


This is a normally dry feeder to Falls Creek in Ringing Rocks County Park in Bridgeton Township. I loved the moss-covered rocks with the small falls.

In a couple upcoming posts, I will be showing photos from my Saturday afternoon hike in Ringing Rocks County Park. Falls Creek in Ringing Rocks County Park was particularly impressive on Saturday afternoon.

You are lucky to have rain, global warming hasn't reached this part of the world then, glad to hear it.

Thanks, mreddie. I thought picture was energizing, too.

Hi, tea. Thanks for coming by and viewing my pics. It's a way I share the beauty of nature and family with others.

Thanks, choochoo. It was a great place to hike.

Hi, cergie. Yes, it was wet on the ground; but fortunately I did not get more than a few drops while I was out hiking. And do keep warm and healthy. Wrap a blanket around yourself. :)

Thanks, ellee. I keep realizing that I am more blessed than I realize.

Thanks, ocean. Waterfalls are a gift to be enjoyed.

Thanks, judypatoote. You know that part of what I like about the Web. It enables us to vicariously enjoy and learn things we never would otherwise.

I loved seeing this and going on this walk with you. What a lovely area/

Fred said...

The only hiking I do is to find the phone so I can order room service. I'm too old for the real thing.

Great pictures, Tim.

Ginnie said...

Rivers and waterfalls--I'm a sucker for both. Great shots.

Merili said...

Holaaaaa. Long time no see :)
Wow, it looks lovely in the pictures. I am jealous since i love hiking and the outdoor type 100%.
Could you believe it is snowing in Sarajevo - no hiking for a while :( but the skiing season is coming up :)

photowannabe said...

What a beautiful place. The rain put a shine on everything. Looking forward to further pics of this area.

Tim - By the way, I enjoy the new look you have going here. Got bored with the old background?

judypatooote said...

I thought I'd tell you that I already rec'd my Corel program. I have installed it, and now I'm going to read up on it.....so far so good.....thanks Tim.....

Paige said...

Fantastic scenes even for cloudy wet days. I agree with M(urf)!, I too can almost smell the flavor of the damp moss covered rocks. Leaves carpeting the floor with a slight breeze, causing the trees to drop a few more for me see as they flutter down to join the others.
Thanks for the hike.

Hi, nabeel. Getting out in nature is a great way for soulful restoration.

Thanks, annie. I'm glad I could provide this walk for you.

Oh, fred, you just need to start small. ;)

Thanks, ginnie. Water does have an attractive quality in nature.

Thanks, deals on wheel. I try. :)

Thanks, faye pekas. Nature is good to us that way.

Thanks, kepa. You are welcome to visit here.

Thanks, murf. Being out in nature like that is refreshing. And as for a new template, sometimes it's just time to try something new.

Thanks, sage. I like that one, too.

Thanks, merili. Glad you enjoyed it. And good to hear from you again. Let's see you could go hiking with snow shoes. ;)

Thanks, photo-effe. It is something I enjoy.

Thanks, photowannabe. It is a beautiful area. And my photos are inadequate to communicate its full beauty.

Hi, judypatooote. That sounds exciting. Now you just have to spend time playing with photos to see what you can do. :)

Thanks, paige. Glad I could provide you with this virtual hike.

Thanks, 19 seconds of spring. I am blessed with many places to enjoy nature.
