    While out hiking on the weekend, I came across this creek, and saw the reflections of the trees. The problem was it met another river, so I was at a dead end and could not get to a spot to get a good picture.
    I noticed one of the branches from a tree leaned over this stream and thought ...if only I could get to the middle of the stream to get a shot.
    So out I slid , bit by bit, with my camera over my shoulder. The further I went, the more the branch started to lower towards the water. I thought, is this really worth it. I took only one pic, before I realized how far I had crawled out on this branch, and had to go back.

    I still did not get the photo I wanted, but came pretty close and almost had a nice swim too.

    I agree Ghoste. I have risked some pretty....well risky situations to get a pic. Been kicked out of places, almost run down.
    I will try the black and white , it could be interesting. Thanx

    great shot, chiller...you almost became like your name....chilled..love the way the sky is so dark blue in the reflection... the black and white is good...kinda eerie, and gives you more of a feel for the trees..but the color one is better...shows off the reflection of the water and sky ...i love this....good eye....
