Nice shot, and the brown water makes me feel right at home.

It is a good thing that line is there to catch the canoers!

Thanks, guys! and guy - most of our rivers are about the same color, even when they're pretty clear - most likely the tannins here, too.

I love that glassy water slipping over the edge . It's quite mesmerising. I'm sure I can see it moving if I stare hard enough! (Might be time to give the eyeballs a rest, do you think?!)

very best wishes to you, Sue

LOL, Sue, Thanks! Haven't had much time to comment lately - though I've been enjoying your shots. But even more - I get dragged into reading you entertaining poems and conversations, and then not commenting myself! And definitely consider everyone's advice: get a new camera with a zoom. There are so many relatively inexpensive models with great zooms and macros. And your real justification: those adorable kids who grow so fast. You need a great camera to capture all that! Cheers!

Ho, so you get caught up in all the chit chat, do you Kamaly!? Well, I'm so glad that you're still around and don't mind if you dont' get the time to always comment, I know there're lots of things that need to be done that don't involve a screen and a chair to sit on! The earliest opportunity, I'll be seeking out a new camera, don't you worry about that -in the meantime, the kids do have a habit of eating all the funds up, but never mind, they're worth it, bless'em!

Thanks so much for having a chat, I do love to hear from you, but I'll know you're in the vicinity, regardless, as I said, so for now, have a great week, and catch up with you soon! cheers, sue

Thanks, Gerry ! I have to say, I have no idea why there's a dam here! Its not very high, and doesn't seem to impound much water, and there doesn't seem to be anything lock-like in case it was historically for navigability. Most likely it would have been built in the 1800's, and so just sort of remains.
