The day was COLD and blustery with billowing clouds that kept passing overhead to dim the sunlight. Did I mention passing showers also dampened the scene?
Fortunately there were enough periods of glorious sunlight to illuminate the flowing waters of one of my favorite tiny creeks in northern Wisconsin. Every Fall when I pass through Wisconsin’s magnificent Northwoods I pay a call to this little stream. On sunny days this small waterway offers beautiful reflections of Autumn’s splendor where water cascades over a boulder dam. On this particular day between pelting rain showers cerulean blue sky emerged to combine with vivid flaming maple trees to create a watery world of intense color.
