This is Sugar Creek, which runs right behind my mom’s new house. I finally got time to go explore it today. One of the coolest things I found was a beaver den, one of their dams, and a lot of signs of their activity. So that was really cool. The creek is really pretty and I will definitely be spending a lot of time there. It was a fun day of exploring there and a good day overall, despite some people being annoying. I even got to see my aunt who came down to visit, and I to relax after a stressful week and have a nice dinner.
The great palette of blues, whites and grey is another benefit of winter. Unlike a lot of people I usually like winter. Now, I have my limits and I don’t like the freezing, bitter cold that Indiana can get, but overall winter is a great time. I like the cold better than the heat anyway. And the photos can be great during the winter. So I was excited when I was treated early to the ice, reflections and blue skies in the photo above.
Another beautiful morning in the Ecolab. I was actually in class when I got to take this shot. We were told to go take pictures of the fall colors and do portraits. I just focused on the colors and ended up modeling for the portraits and helping some other people get their shots. It was a good morning for shooting, though it was a little cold.
Today I went to a beautiful bridge and another waterfall that is close to the Ecolab. The area is filled with various stone structures, like bridges, cisterns, pump houses and a coach house. All relics from the wealthy businessmen that used to live here. They make for some interesting shots and this is one of the best bridges on the property.
So this little, mini waterfall isn’t actually in the Ecolab. It is in an adjoining property that I found a while back and now explore from time to time. I think Brandy may have also shot this waterfall at one point. I walked past it today and I looked so pretty, so I stopped and got a few photos, trying to get a decent picture without my tripod.
Backed up to the pond. Midnight rolls around with a storm trailing behind it. Somehow that doesn’t matter. The back is open, windows down, the music on & I’m in heaven. I’ve never experienced something so peaceful.
The sweet smell of the country air. The silence of the night and the soothing splash of the water against the rocks. At that moment there was no other place I wanted to be.
