It’s been awhile since I’ve tossed any shots of Shannon Creek at you, so you’re totally due. Note that I didn’t use a very long shutter speed here, so you can actually see some splashes and stuff. Putting it that way suggests that I intentionally did it that way because that was the effect I was going for. That’s a little bit misleading. I used a fairly fast shutter speed because I was shooting hand-held. So, this was what came out. Not the other way around.
Ok, see you tomorrow, maybe.

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!

According to Google Analytics, everybody who normally comes around these parts is taking the month of December off. That means that you, dear reader, don’t actually exist. And THAT means that I may as well work through the backlog of pictures of Shannon Creek. Because I’ve still got a ton of ’em. Then, when and if everyone comes back, I’ll go back to making a feeble effort toward variety. So, until then…

Another day, another picture of Shannon Creek. Seriously, haven’t we already seen all of these? No, believe it or not. But, I think I’ve already said all you could possibly say about it. So, ummm…

Hello everyone, and welcome back! (Well, the second part only applies to me.) I just got back into town after spending the weekend on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, for a family reunion. And, I haven’t had a chance to even download the pics off the camera yet, much less post one here. I believe I got at least a couple that are picture-of-the-day-worthy, so hopefully you’ll be able to see those at some point in the near future.
In the meantime, here’s Shannon Creek. I’ve posted a lot of pictures of Shannon Creek, many of which came from the same day that this one did. But it’s been awhile, so I figure it’s fair game. As a quick refresher, Shannon Creek is in British Columbia, just outside of Squamish, which is the town halfway between Vancouver and Whistler. It sits at the bottom of Shannon Falls, and it’s a great little stop along the drive to get out and stretch your legs.
That’s all, go back to whatever you were doing.
