A very dramatic title for a very dramatic shot! What a huge looks like a thick wooden plank! All that green and all the reflections almost make your eyes jump when you look at it in slide show:)

Hahaha...good, I glad it popped for you Joy

It was indeed a BIG tree down.

All the best from down here.

Awesome!! Love that reflection. I'd like to walk across that if it's not too slippery. :]

Do you think you could Liam? It looks a little steep.

Thanks for your comments and stay cool!

What happens now Jethro? , do they put it up again, remove it, leave it or what?

I reckon they should leave it for wild life and ramblers to cross the stream, don't you?

Cool shot by a cool guy!

They don't give a damn Mike

Several years ago, one of our favorite stretches of river, the Eno, was entirely blocked in one direction.... so we put our kayaks in and could paddle East but not paddle west beyond about 1/2 mile.

It was blocked by fallen trees against the supports of a large bridge Here.

With nowt better to do one day I started phoning round to see who I could wind up, sorry motivate, to clear it. I spoke to State Park people, river authority people, the city road agency who looked after the bridge (bridge 41 I learned), wildlife people, everybody I could think of. There was no chance of anybody unblocking it.

It took a hurricane to clear it all away.

Thank you for you kind comments and best wishes Mike from Jethro in North Carolina

Great tale from the backwoods Jethro, did you ever think of using a few beavers to shift the log jam? or maybe a surrepticiously 'dropped' stick of dynamite??

I enjoy your photos all the better for your 'homely' tales, when I look at them and read your comments I can almost smell the camp fire and the beans and bacon burning!!

aaaaal the best bonnnie laaad

I did threaten to take a chain saw to it and this bloke on the phone advised me against using chainsaws near water.

Maybe he was thinking electric one?

All the very best Mike!

Thank you Patti I don't have a lot of flexibility with composition floating in my mostly controllable boat.

I know you do Mike - I'll try to find you some more.


Best wishes both from Two Mile Ash - or thereabouts.
