Melissa and I stopped by Uvas Canyon County Park for a few hours on Sunday. I wanted to see if there was any water in the waterfalls. There was, but not much. The pix:
A bridge near the beginning of the Falls Loop.
About the best of the bunch: I shot this with the shutter speed turned way down … and got lucky, considering it was hand-held.
Melissa admires the woods. Uvas is one of the few cool and shady parks in the far South Bay.
A reflection shot available only when there’s still water in the creek.
More of Melissa in the woods.
I’m starting to like these kinds of shots better than dead-tree pix.
Who says we never have any fall color around here?
Now that is one major mushroom.
By the way, I’m on vacation the next two weeks with no plans beyond finding cool places to hike that I haven’t seen already. This should yield a few midweek hike write-ups.
Can’t believe this is a place Gambolin’ Man’s never been to! Ain’t that somethin’! You can bet he’ll be there – who wants to join? – when the rains fill the ravines and gullies. Meanwhile, Tom, you’ve captured, with that one shot of the water still relatively gushing, and the other of the dreamy reflections, the unheralded beauty of simple scenes of precious water in nature!
