Another Monday, gone by without a post. It’s becoming a routine. A totally awesome yet solidly disappointing routine. And to make up for it all I’ve got for you is yet another shot of Shannon Creek, outside Squamish, British Columbia? It’s a wonder why any of you keep coming back. But you do! Which is awesome! So, thanks for that!

I’ve been in a photographic rut lately. I haven’t been taking any pictures. I mean, sure, a decent part of that is that it’s winter, and I’ve been busy. So I haven’t been making it outside much, and even if I were able to make it outside, it can be difficult around here to get places where the conditions make for the kinds of pictures I want to take. Mostly, I’m just trying to make excuses for the fact that I’m lazy. But there’s at least a little bit of truth to it. Regardless, my camera’s been sitting in the corner gathering dust for awhile now, and it’s disappointing. And, when the camera’s not being used, it can affect my whole mood around my pictures, which as you can see, leads to a reduced level of excitement for putting pictures up here. While it’s true that most of these pictures that I’m posting are brand new to all of you, I’ve seen most of them hundreds if not thousands of times before, so the novelty and newness of them has long since worn off, so it can be hard to drum up some excitement about them when I post them here. But again, totally my own problem, and just another symptom of me being lazy. I get that, I really do. :)

Anyway, now that the self-pity is dispensed with, look at this picture of Shannon Creek! It’s so….. green!

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel XT, Tamron 28-300mm VC lens. 1/40s, f/9.0, ISO 400. Focal length: 46mm.

    Do not lament that you are not posting on a regular basis. I am just glad that you continue to do so.

    I am a very novice photographer, purchased a D90 and a couple of lens last year and your pictures are really helping me understand how to take better pictures.

      Thanks for the kind words! I will channel your energy to help get today’s picture posted. :)

      Also – I want to make it out to New Hampshire! Both to ski as well as to hike. You may have seen that I got to spend a day or two in Vermont this year in the late fall, and I’m hooked, I need to make it back out there and take the time to actually experience the area properly.
