West Canada Creek

Although the temperature was a little cooler than I would have liked, Sunday was a great day to play in the West Canada Creek. The volume of water flowing in the creek was not at the level of spring run off but the velocity created a few interesting sections where the water navigated the rocks among the creek bed.

I was sharing my spot with a handful of fly fishermen. I couldn’t tell if they were having any success but I definitely was capturing some good images. My success rate increased when I switched to the opposite side of the creek and shot with the sun rather than into it. Probably didn’t hurt that a few more clouds rolled in and helped reduce the glare on the water.

The hour I spent playing in the creek was exactly the adventure I needed. Listening to the sound of the rushing water always has a positive affect on me. It doesn’t hurt that I also captured some great images of the flowing water…
