A break from night skies

A break from the night skies.

It was too cloudy last night when I went out to do a few images of the night sky and I am still processing a few from the other day. I decided to share another from my morning trip last week to the Upper Tallulah River in Rabun County. I love to photograph when it is raining or misty and it was just that when I was on the river. The rocks were slick! Slicker than Owl sh…, never mind, you might know that saying. Where does that saying come from? Who tested the slickness of owl poop anyway and compared to other poops? I had to crawl or slide on my bottom out to the edge of the rock in order to capture the fern and isolate it against the rock below. I then slid back and hiked up the short hill, but that is what seat covers are for, right?
