Barefoot in the Stream / by Mike Petrucco

I have been living with this stream in my backyard (or rather my kind neighbor's "front" yard) for almost 10 years. I finally had the chance to take the short walk out there in the evening to try and capture this scene in camera. I really want to visit this in the fall with some great colors or maybe in the winter when there is ice and snow. The near ground foliage makes getting the right composition a challenge. I'll have to take some waders if I get out there in fall or winter though! 

Nonetheless, it still is a peaceful scene, and fun to stand barefoot in the stream to capture it. 

Details: Canon 7D, Tamron 24-70 SP2.8 VR, 24mm, f11, iso 100, 6 sec. exposure.
