I’ve been putting a new camera through its paces the past two days, visiting favorite haunts and subjects. Cobb Brook down in Hanksville offers lovely sculpted rocks that, even in low water, make for some lovely long exposure shooting. You can see a few more of yesterday’s shots on my Photograph Blog.
