December 21, 2008 Brokenstraw Creek
  Winter has set in and it is getting harder and harder to find time to shoot. The busy Holiday season has made it that much harder.

I was able to get out for around an hour very late in the afternoon. I found a new spot along Brokenstraw Creek that I have never been to before. I am calling the area "The Islands". This area is very cool as the main stream breaks up along several islands. These are the remnants of glacial till left behind during the last ice age. With temps around 10 degrees it seemed like it was still the ice age.

It was so cold that ice quickly formed on my waders and on the legs of my tripod. I had to be very careful while wading as to not fall in. I was quite sure I would quickly freeze to death if I did. I managed to shoot a roll of Efke IR820 in my Holga before the sun got to low and I got to cold.

All in all it was a good day and I was happy with the results.
