Anchor on Rock Creek – We took a camping trip up Rock Creek last year with a group of friends and landed browns, cutthroats and even a bull trout or two. I took this photo (a twist on my usual water under the rocks scene) during a thunder and lightning “break.” Wielding graphite rods during a lightning storm, even in a rubber boat, is not a good idea!

I’ll never tire of river rock photos. They always remind me of this quote:
Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.
