Spring Day at the American River
Some days just don’t turn out the way that you intended them to be…today MUCH better than imagined. Any time I can enjoy my camera and beautiful surroundings–perfect! Today was one of those moments in time!
It is amazing how much change came come into a single area within a few weeks. Five weeks ago…all that was here was river rock and a few Poppies. Today, I was dodging people coming off of rafts and more Fox Tails than I ever knew could be in one place. (Didn’t know you could get a “Fox Tail Splinter”! Is possible, will have to soak my hand tonight!)
I will enjoy pulling the Fox Tails out of my socks, shoes, pants, shirt, and pads–previously used for backpacking, now perfect for being on top of river rock! Well worth the images!

Thanks so much for viewing and commenting:) The American River is magic!
It will be a difficult adjustment for me this year, now that people are entering into the picture, or have the potential of entering into my pics! (Did not realize how spoiled I have become during the winter time to have a secluded beautiful place to shoot!) Can sit and watch clouds at home, hop in the car and am there in minutes:)
My next plan is to work on sunrise and the “magic” hour. Then, I do not think I will run into many folks–they add a lot, I know…but have gotten spoiled!
