Close to home #3: Tyler Creek

I posted some photos of Tyler Creek last fall. This time around, the creek was one of three stops in a flurry of photos taken in about an hour last weekend. By this time, the sun was sitting very low in the trees, throwing shafts of light on the far bank and the small rapids.

Tyler Creek presented an entirely different mood than Jelke’s Creek, just a mile or so away. While Jelke’s sits in a hollow and feeds lazily into a small lake, Tyler Creek is in a hurry to dump its contents into the Fox River. It is swollen from recent melted snow. A good sign if you’re looking for spring.

Update: This photo has been entered in the Thursday Challenge, where the theme is "energy." Swing on over and take a look at the other energetic entries.

Like this a lot, the water, the rapids, with the rocks. Good things are close to home, sometimes. V. Schroeder
