  1. Intriguing image, Linda – the combination of the greenery, the mud and the iridescence; and the composition is good too. A 🙂

    • Thanks, Adrian. At first I didn’t like the greenery; then realized it could be part of the composition.

  2. Yeah! 🙂 I like the meeting up of two different life forms here (I’m sure there are more but I’m concentrating on the two). And I can just hear the suck of that mucky mud. Love it.

    • It really is mucky mud. Right here it’s a layer only a couple of inches deep over solid shale. But along parts of the river, it’s a lot deeper and quite scary to walk in, especially when I’m walking in the river alone, which is usually the case. I’m always happy that I have my walking stick, but it’s the collapsing kind, and it can get stuck in the muck, too, and start to pull apart (and be useless). So far I’ve been lucky, but I’m thinking I might want a different kind of walking stick.

      • Yes, please get something sturdier – even just a long, heavy stick for only that place. Sometimes it’s not the worst that happens, but it’s really inconvenient, like losing your balance and the camera falling into the muck. Wouldn’t want that!!

        • Thanks for your concern, Lynn. I used to use a stick that I found someplace in the park, but the thing about them is that you can’t always be sure of their reliability, either. Also, they tend to be heavy if they are really sturdy. I just spent too much time Googling for a carbon fiber monopod walking stick. (My current stick can also be used as a monopod; I like that.) Arghhh. Will look more later.
