Water is easily taken for granted. When you want it you turn a handle and it flows from your spigot, refreshing and sustaining.
With the My Creek photo competition in mind, I tossed my camera in the car on my way to pick my daughter up from a nearby friend’s slumber party, intent on spending a few moments communing with my creek.
Just 10 minutes after parking at a trailhead, I was back with these photos and a serene sensibility that the water, sound, light and motion of the few minutes of autumnal splendor had instilled in me.
That was too easy.
You should try it. You should enter the My Creek photo competition if you are anywhere near our brewery. To enter, take photographs anywhere along the Brandywine Creek, then go to www.mycreek.org and submit them.
If you are not near, breathe a comforted sigh while gazing at the pristine beauty of My Creek, the East Branch of the Brandywine. And next time you drink a Headwaters Pale Ale, know that you are helping to keep these waters clean.
