Lower Rock Creek, Owens Valley, California
Rock Creek starts in the high Sierra and flows about 30 miles to the Owens River. About halfway along its journey, it turns south and is named Lower Rock Creek. This is a wonderful stretch to hike along, especially in the fall with the yellow aspen leaves reflected in the water. Here, the blue sky adds another color to the palette. Flowing water can be so graceful.
Bridalveil Creek, Yosemite National Park
This is another photo taken in early June when there was a very high water flow due to high snowfall in the mountains. Taken just below Bridalveil Falls. The song of the waters filled the air all around me.
Middle Fork, Stanislaus River, California
This 95 mile long river has three forks which flow from the western Sierra into the San Joaquin Valley. This photo was taken in August on the middle fork near Sonora Pass, where the river flows through a narrow canyon. I loved the colors and the varied directions of the currents.
