Up the Creek

Up the Creek

You have likely heard the term "Up the Creek" many times, usually meaning that one is in a troubling situation with no way out. In this post, the term takes on a more positive annotation as it simply refers to the location of a couple of sailboats I came upon in the early morning sun while out boating.

As the sunlight filtered through the trees, one of the most beautiful mornings anyone could ask for unfolded before my very eyes. I was literally up the creek, as this is the very end of the waterway with no place else to go but back down stream and into the larger body of water known as Carter's Creek.

I recall it being so peaceful and quiet, only interrupted by the occasional sound of fish breaking the water as they fed on bugs along the surface. This fond memory is heading to the print shop and afterward, will reside on a wall space in my office.

The image was created from a 3-shot bracket (-2 to +2) which was hand-held. During post-processing the bracketed shots were aligned in Photoshop prior to the application of my usual treatments.

Thanks for visiting!
