For a brief period after the snow melts in the spring, Muddy Creek rises and floods this little area. It isn’t long before the weeds and grasses take over and the creek becomes barely visible. I wanted to capture this fleeting moment of beauty with my camera, but it took me nearly a year. Finally I was graced with a wonderful sunrise to complement the reflection of the trees in the flooded creek. Sometimes patience pays off!
