Watery Wednesday - Black Creek Waterfall

Posted by Lorac Tuesday, 16 February 2010

This is one theme I really enjoy as I get to look at gorgeous water views all over the world. Well worth a visit to Watery Wednesday!

 I found this little waterfall on a recent walk along one of the Bruce Trail pathways. This is  part of Black Creek that winds it's way down to the much larger Credit River. It is not far from a historical lime kiln site (last post below) and you can see the foot bridge made from limestone as well as a retaining wall. These were built in the 1840's. I liked it enough to put it as my header.

A little further along, the little creek reflects the winters  barren trees on it's still surface. It is not hard to see why it is called Black Creek!

It was so quiet way back in the forest. This is what I love about winter!
Do go and have a look at Watery Wednesday!

  2. Your images show the beauty of the Winter season!
    Great contrast showing the water moving rapidly and then the still water.

  6. Judy look for Limehouse just outside of Georgetown on the 22nd SDRD. The Bruce Trail access just past the litlle town and over the bridge. Can't miss it!

  7. Very cool photos. As mentioned by Judy, I'm not sure about the using my feet to cross the footbridge, but I might scoot along it on my rear.

  8. Lorac Says:
  9. Travel and Dive Girl- There actually is a bridge a little way down to cross. But I was considering walking the stone bridge in the summer months!

  34. How beautiful! If water is flowing...doesn't that mean it's not frozen?! Isn't that good news?! Enjoy the last of your winter season!

  37. I love that little footbridge! What a beautiful place.

  38. Martha Z Says:

  40. A Woman Says:
  41. Beautiful photography. The still water of black creek almost reminds me of a Bev Doolittle painting with it's reflective surface.
