Very serene looking place, your hidden river Bob, dead logs and very live vegetation make a good counterpoint in this fine naturescape, even without your nice sounding and probably good tasting berry tea my friend, have a cup for me, will you?

I have a feeling that this spot holds some wonderful memories. Everybody should have a hidden place like this. A wonderful pov showing the river, the logs and the greenery. Can't get more natural than this. Wild Strawberry tea sounds yummy - wonder if that would help my knee.

A lovely shot,and an intriguing recipe.
If I ever find lots of wild strawberries again I will definitely have to try it.

That's a beautiful scene, Bob. Your note was very descriptive and a joy to read. I hope someday to try your recipe!
I really like the variety of plant life here. The density of the foliage is evident, and the fallen timber shows the wildness of this place.
I have had only a few occasions trudging through the wild (I usually stick to marked trails), but a place like this is worth all the ticks and burrs one might pick up along the way -- well, burrs anyway. I'm still working on my appreciation of ticks.

Love your Hidden River, I can see why it would be hard to find with all that greenery surrounding it. I imagine there might be a bear or two visiting this out of the way place from time to time.
Your notes really made me hungry for your home made drink. I do find wild strawberries around here, but never in any great quantity. I'll have to copy your recipe for use at a later time. TFS.

A great discovery of hidden treasure in the wilderness you are living. I appreciate the current of river. Surprisingly the river has maintained its course over years due to thick vegetation around & has not caused soil erosion despite of current which is frequently seen in our surrounding due to floral destruction. TFS this wilderness. Once again, happy Easter to you & your family.
PS: Who has chopped off the fallen tree trunks (natural bridges for many species staying here)!

It looks like there is alot of water flowing in this small hidden river, perhaps it had been raining and this shows a lot of lush scrub. We get wild strawberries and raspberries, both small but tasty and we pick them for eating there and then, but the tea we don't have - sounds delicious.
Nice early summer scene from your archives Bob and TFS.

What a nice, true three-dimensional shot of a very pictorial place. I like transparency of the image, crisp sharpness of every leaf and twig, tremendous reproduction of water stream and the tumbled down trunks of trees. Thanks for this charming photo poem.

The title already is a promise of something interesting..and it is bien sūr!
I like these hidden corners where you find the true and natural things. The wild strawberries also grow on my meadow, but I never made some drink with it, because I'm eating them right on place:-)
Very well composed picture showing this very wild place.

The capture of the power of the current is an asset to the composition. The vegetation and the trees are a natural frame to the river. The point of view takes our eyes toward the trees in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The good lighting has a good effect on the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.
