[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spring typically brings the melt of high elevation snows. These snows melt down and flow into creeks. This particular Creek is called curlew Creek and is the convergence of 6 different creeks before they run into the Kettle River which then runs into the mighty Columbia River.

There was the start of a beaver den here at this slight falls, but the beaver moved it's den up river by 1200 yards and is hidden well by thick brush and trees.

Hi Bob,
Great to drop by after such a long time!I Hope I find you well. We've had a strange winter this year (if you can call it that!) just seems to have gone from autumn to spring. Looks like we'll have water shortages this coming summer.A lovely image, very relaxing and i like how soft the texture is. Take care my friend.
Regards, David

Namastay Bob,
A nice capture of this beautiful creek of Kettle River. Excellent composition and a very good view. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Bob,
Nice capture of natures furry at this particular time of the year. You can definitely see how much force is generated from this event. Hopefully the snow will stay away until next year, so we can start enjoying the sunshine for a change.

Lovely capture of this stream Bob.
Good to see that the snows have finally melted around your way. I hope the weather warms up a bit for you now.

Hello Bob, In the middle of the forest there are white patches of water. Interesting note and you have taken this lovely shot. TFS Ganesh

Ah Spring! The hope and renewal of the season. I remember the first year I 'met' you, Kettle Creek flooded so terribly. The photos were amazing though. And when do they do that barrel float thing? Isnt' that in the spring?
Great to see your work. Sorry I've been out of touch. :)
