East Branch, Perkiomen Creek, No. 2

These are some more pictures from my Monday hike along the East Branch of the Perkiomen Creek at the Perkiomen Watershed Conservancy grounds.

These are all great and I've enjoyed the whole series, but I especially like the last shot of the footprints in the snow.

Very pretty pictures but I do have to get on organizing that trip to Tahiti for you and Sage. :-)

I agree with photowannabe--the last pic is my favorite. I am so there in my mind's eye!

nice fav. is the greenery in looks so incongruous and yet fits in right :)

Ooh, the creek bank photo is a keeper Tim! The snow seems to be late this year? Or am I just being an ignorant-no-snow-having-down-under-

Thanks, photowannabe. These pictures can draw one's imagination powerfully and probably especially the last one.

Thanks, murf. I see my photos are staying too wintery for you. ;)

Thanks, ginnie. The mind is a powerful tool.

Thanks, moi. The greenery is a reminder that life stills exist.

Thanks, san nakji. The creek bank photo is neat! As for the snow, it's later than some years; but sometimes our biggest snows don't come till March and some years we don't have much snow if any.
