Down by the river

Dead, barren tree

I went for a short bike ride today, after I fin­ished work: over the bridge and down to the river­bank. I man­aged to get a cou­ple pho­tos of a kayak­er enjoy­ing the weath­er, and I’m try­ing to decide which one I like bet­ter. I think I like the clos­er-in one, though I wish I’d focused it bet­ter. (Look­ing at it again, maybe I could lie and tell peo­ple I meant it to be an impres­sion­is­tic image.)

(Actu­al­ly, they’re both crops of the same photo.)

I also got a pho­to of one of the trees that died in the 2011 flood, with the new crop of wil­lows vis­i­ble behind it. That one’s at the top of this post.
