Melts the Heart

When this blog began last fall there was such a rush to get it out the door that things sometimes went a little quicker than the name SlowTV suggested.  Fortunately, another spring brings another thaw in the same way that another week brings another blog.

We returned last week to the Sierras to try and capture the spirit of the spring thaw.  There is so much snow up there that late April may have been a little early.  But only a little.  Creeks are not overflowing but they are running hard.

Especially this one.  As it charges down the hill it returns to boulders scattered about during previous floods.  When rocks break the edges are angular and rough.  These stones are rounded and smooth, ready for another year of rinse and repeat.

When the Laurie’s Falls blog was published last September there were lots of looks at lots of creeks.  This time we spend the entire two minutes on the same one.  Though we do look from a couple of angles.

This is the kind of creek that encourages the curious.  So much water, so many rocks.  What is around the next?

Please join me now back up in California’s High Sierras for two minutes so that we can watch the very rapid arrival of Spring.

    I liked all of the views but I thought the first and third were more visually interesting.
    The first had more to look at and the third had that background fall through the spray of the foreground.
