This shot gives a better look at the little bridge my grandfather built. This innocent looking stream has flooded heavily enough to knock out that bridge in the past. Most of the time though it is exactly like this, and a great place to spend the afternoon.

This is my favourite view so far Josh. Wonderful composition with the stream crossing the screen. Beautiful spot without the flooding. I will keep those mushroom clouds away from this area lol. Great capture:-)

What a beautiful place and photographed with such a feeling for the balance and gentleness of the landscape. This does not look like Florida - more like New England. Where is it?

Thanks very much guys, and good call Steb. This was taken on my vacation in Connecticut, where my dad grew up and a lot of family still lives :)

This one is your best rendition of this scene, I think. The tree balances the shed, and the red of the shed enhances the simplicity of the green place rather than dominating it. Finally, the stream brings a sense of serenity that was less present in previous versions. Thanks.

I hold it true that thoughts are things; They're endowed with bodies, breath and wings: And that we send them forth to fill the world with good results, or ill. That which we call our secret thought speeds forth to earth's remotest spot, leaving it's blessings or it's woes like tracks behind it as it goes. We build our future, thought by thought for good or for ill, yet know it not. Yet so the universe was wrought . Thought is another name for fate. Choose then thy destiny and wait, for Love brings Love and Hate brings Hate. - Henry Van Dyke.

I like the contrast between a sunny warm day and shaded cool water The arch in the bridge must have been extra work but it looks so much more charming than a flat one would have been.

Now here is a perfect example of how to take what would normally be a mundane, run of the mill photo and by photographing it at the right time of day, turn it into a masterpiece. And, the capture of the shadows does exactly that. Good job.
