The Crick by AreteEirene The Crick by AreteEirene
Ok, how many of you say Crick instead of Creek? :aww: Yay for regional accents. :giggle:

This is the little stream that passes under our drive and along the northern side of the property and golf course. I always think it's so pretty, and it burbles just like a little stream should. Needless to say, it's pretty full at the moment, what with all the precipitation we've had in the last week.

I liked the reflections in the water. :)

Opinions are welcome. I'm just starting to work with RAW files, and I went with a colder, bluer tint here to highlight the coldness.

:snowing:

It's so calming and beautiful. I always loved winter for the beauty it brings out. The reflection in the water is just gorgous.

When I was looking through the series I told my mom (before I loaded this one) that they sure looked cold. :lol: Colder than it actually was, I think.

I say creek. ;p

How long is it? I love little streams like that.

I don't know. I'm not sure if it's the same stream that runs behind my uncle Mike's house, which is about half a mile down the street. That one is pretty small at that point, and runs off into the neighboring field. This one continues west, I assume down to the little river out by 79, which is maybe two/three miles down the road. So I'd assume it's at least three miles long, I guess. :D

Ah, cool. Does it run through trees? I remember playing next to a stream in the forest while in Washington when I was younger. It wasn't that deep, but they put a plank across it (the stream had cut a path a few feet deep, yet was many 6 inches to a foot in water level) and dared us to cross. I didn't just because I didn't want to chance falling in and getting soaked since I didn't have spare clothes. Yet it was really cool to be in the forest and see something like that. I wish I could do it again someday.

But of course it does =P

Maybe you could go out with *BuckNut or one of his brothers. They specialize in tracking down water in the forest. :lmao:

Haha, it sure looks like it. Tracking down water in a forest is pretty difficult in North Dakota.

is that because there isn't much water or there isn't much forest? Or both? :confused:

There isn't...really any forest. :XD: Sure you get little patches here and there that people had grown, such as tree rows and stuff, but compared to say...Minnesota, we don't have any forests. We obviously have some spots with trees, though, but I don't know if they'd be big enough to be a real 'forest,' really.

Oh well, that could be a problem. :XD:

Ohio used to be one giant forest. Not it's mostly farmland with little patches of forest here or there. But trees will sprout up anywhere if you let them - we're always weeding out maple trees from the landscaping. :giggle:

This little creek actually winds between farmlands. It's got a little strip of trees on either side as far as I can see; there's more trees on this side along the golf course.

"My knees creak, and I had a crick in my back when I went down to the creek." :lol: I'll still pronounce creek crick though. I think it's an Ohio thing. :lmao:

A week ago it was 65 degrees. That was followed by a nasty ice storm, and two days later the snow started. :O

I hope your horses are warm :aww:
