Crossing the divide

Another in image from our Derbyshire walk. Since I was waiting around while @shepherdmanswife was busy with her camera, it was a case of “if-you-can’t-beat-them-then-join-them”, and so for every quality shot that @shepherdmanswife too, I took several shots of a somewhat lower standard. The river was close to where we parked and so we crossed it at the beginning and end of the walk, encouraging the dogs into the water before we returned to the car in an attempt to demuddify them. Spellcheck doesn’t like “demuddify” but you know precisely what I mean. The brown colour is not mud that has been separated from the dogs; it is because the river originated from the peat bogs of the higher moorland a few miles away. When we set off, the route crossed the river via an old narrow bridge, more a plank with a handrail, and neither dog would cross it. Tia merely jumped in and paddled across, but we were worried that older Lesia wouldn’t be able to climb the bank on the far side. Fortunately a modern wider bridge had recently been constructed just a few hundred yards upstream, otherwise it would have been a very short hike.
Very beautiful pov and capture. Love it, how the creek vanishes in the picture.

I think this is beautiful - shots do not have to be technically perfect to make them a beautiful image - there are to many quality images on this site that all look the same to me - I like the ones that evoke an emotional response - and this does - you have made me feel like I am there

Spellcheck is like computers unimaginative and only sees one universally accepted answer life often calls for creativity to describe things. I thought this looked like brown water from nature not from muddy dogs.

I don't think demuddifying dogs works! It never worked with me - I left them for ages outside until all the mud and water just dropped off! Nice to see this trickling stream going past the mossy banks!

A beautiful babbling brook :)
