A Small Stream

A couple of weeks ago, I wanted a change of background for my Bookstagram photos. Packing a couple of books inside a bag, I set out for a nearby stream that I often walk past.

On arriving at the stream, I saw the top of a tree stump that would be perfect to place my books on for a shot.

Unpacking my books, I placed them on the space. Luckily I had gone out early in the morning so there were not many people around to interfere with the aesthetic of my photo.

While at the stream, I decided to walk a little as I have always enjoyed this spot.

The stream ripples along quite a bit a the bottom of this ravine and I followed along with it until I could no longer.

Stones have been placed alongside the stream to prevent erosion and, as I walked along, I wondered if the stream ever becomes a gushing river.

In all the years I have lived in this neighbourhood and walked this way, I have not seen the level higher than this.

My curiosity is peaked though and I think to myself I need to come by here the next time we are issued with a flood warning. In the meantime, though, my task was done and my walk at an end. I will return another time to enjoy the sight of the stream.

Do you have a stream nearby your home that you can enjoy?

  1. I love it when Bookstagrammers take their books outside into nature. I’ll always wanted to do it but have not yet found a way to incorporate it into my feed. Beautiful photos Colline!!


  2. That looks so peaceful 😍 We have a man-made stream nearby for the snow that melts from the mountains, and there’s ducks in it most of the time. It’s cool πŸ™‚


  3. Looks like you got very creative there with your book photo. Turned out well. That looks like such a peaceful little stream. Hope you have many quiet walks in this area πŸ™‚


  4. Unfortunately I don’t have water near my home – though I hail from the coast and at every opportunity head out coastwards (obviously not at present, remaining in place due to lockdown and feeling bereft of the sea!). I love your first photo with the books in front of the stream. I am just going to look up what Gilly Macmillan reads now!


    1. I would feel bereft of the sea too if I were used to seeing it often! The beach and the sound of the waves crashing upon the shore is always calming.


      1. I don’t think I appreciated it as much when I lived by the sea as a child – miss it more now I’ve lived away from it for more than 25 years!
