Took a quick trip back to Powhatan Creek this morning. I wanted to see how far north I could get - there's virtually no development in the area and it looks like a great area to continue my project on Wetlands. This part of the creek is ideal for paddle-craft - there's no way powered boats can negotiate the shallow water and many obstacles in the water. The water level was quite low, but I was surprised how far up the creek I could travel. It should be really nice come high water or after some good rains.
On my way back down, I came across a dragonfly on the surface of the water. I picked him up, let him dry off a bit and then set him on some vegetation to recover. Lots of dragonflies in the area, and they are quite fun to observe and photograph.
I couldn't resist converting a scenic photograph to a toned black-and-white. I really enjoy the timeless quality to the areas that I have been paddling. Here are some photographs:
