The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Photo #17

Close to the top of Sucker Creek**

Yesterday afternoon when the rain stopped
I took a little hike along Sucker Creek to
see if I could get up far enough to photograph
all the water cascading out of the pipes.
(See photo #6)
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get up far enough
as the high water really intimidated me and
I was afraid I might slip on the mossy rocks
and go into the creek . So here's a shot looking down
Later on today I will go to the construction site
and see if they will let me into the area where I could
get a better photograph.
**By the way, I guess Sucker Creek was re-named
Oswego Creek, but I like the old name.

Too cold to go falling into creeks surely?

I don't know. While I like the historical significance of the name Oswego Creek, there's a certain colloquial charm to Sucker Creek as well.
