My husband remembered a pretty little dam which he thought would be a good spot for photographs in reflecting water.
We drove up to the dam and I was speechless.
Almost all of the water had been drained out. He began to apologize, thinking I would be disappointed.
I was so excited, I could hardly stand it!
Because, in front of me, was a photographer's dream.....a vast, drained pond FULL of twisted tree roots and tangled trees with wonderful shapes! Almost everywhere I looked, there was a photograph begging me to take it.
I took a TON of photos...so this is the first of a THREE part series of shots I was blessed with there.
Here is a closeup of the many, many tree roots left at the bottom of the drained dam:
And a giant tree root left high and dry.
I loved how it was transposed on the colorful autumn leaves in the background!:
A wider view of the drained dam:
I loved the spreading roots of this stump:
It was so neat that we could walk on the bed of a dam that was drained and take in all that normally lies under the water:
Twin stumps, waiting for some fisherman's lures to get caught in them when the water used to be there:
It looks like a wasteland, in the middle of an autumn wonderland:
At one time, someone must have put this birdhouse right next to the pretty water-filled dam when it looked like a lake.
