if that's in Georgia, no thank you because of the potential cotton mouths

a very beautiful image though
Ginnie Hart: Now that you mention it, Sherri! It's a small stream on a Nature Trail, so I never even once thought of snakes. I'm afraid now I'll always think of snakes when I see this image. HA!

Cette eau n'est pas très propre pour y mettre les pieds.
Ginnie Hart: It's clean, Martine...just a bit muddy.

When I look at this picture I still feel the humidity while we were walking, Ginnie. I hope this trees holds on with the long roots.
(no Cottonmouth" to be seen)

Ginnie Hart: It was definitely humid that day, Astrid. But I never once thought about cooling off my feet...or about snakes!

I can imagine that the stream would be very welcome on a hot day. My boots are waterproof so in summer my feet do get hot during walk.

Eeeek!! I've just read that there is a potential here for venomous snakes!!
Ginnie Hart: I never once thought about venomous snakes in this stream, Alan, which is a good thing, even without trying to cool off my feet!

I hope the tree is still alive - an interesting image!
Ginnie Hart: It seemed very much alive, Philine, even though it was leaning over!
Parfois, on se demande comment font les arbres pour pousser...
Bien vu.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Pascale! Merci.

On a hot day it could be very cooling, provided there are no critters with sharp teeth swimming in it
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Chris!
Oups...je crois qu'on est gaté en ce moment avec notre méteo pluvieuse , en plus sa couleur ne donne pas vraiment envie ..
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: It was a bit muddy after many rains, Claudine, but it did look like refreshing. Merci.

Mud is good for the skin!
Ginnie Hart: So I've heard, Anne! smile

I wonder how long before the roots of this tree are completely undermined Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I wonder, too, Chad!

that poor tree!! is that a flood? or what? it has nothing to hang on to!
Ginnie Hart: It's not a flood, Elaine, but after a lot of rain, making the water look muddy. Trees always surprise me by what they can do to hang on to life, to be honest!
Ha ha....leuk gezien en verwoord!
Dan wens ik je een droog weekend
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. It's been a fabulous week here in Gorinchem!
What? No alligators? I'm disappointed now. wink
In a while, crocodile.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I'd expect nothing less from you, LC. smile
I wonder how much longer that tree will stay upright. Sherrie mentioned that awful word concerning America that Frank and I try to avoid using, we refer to it as the 'S' word!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I avoid that word as often as possible, Brian, so I'm on your same page! smile

A nice array of beautiful textures!! I love your processing where the greens "pop".
Ginnie Hart: So kind of you, Steven. Thank you.
THis reminds me of home. I live on a river and love the muddy bank.
Ginnie Hart: It's always good to be reminded of home, Ruthie, isn't it!
Looks a bit murky for paddling Ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: A lot o rain had muddied the waters, Bill, I'm afraid. But it was all quite lush.
I love these kind of photos...
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Larry.
That tree looks like it it lucky to still be standing.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Michael!
Well seen, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tom.
Will it hold up for a long time? Think you may have been the last to photograph it.
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Claudio. The next time we are there (late 2019), we'll check it out!

YIKES!!
Ginnie Hart: I know!
Down to the knees.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary! smile

It looks more waterlogged than cool feet...
Ginnie Hart: It looks that, too, Cherry, for sure!
This reminds me of all the rain the East Coast received. I hope you missed it!
Ginnie Hart: We actually got lots of rain (for Atlanta) while we were there, Robin, but it happened mostly at night, so we were lucky.
