Redridge in Spring
The old Redridge timber crib dam, in spring.
This one is from the archives. I'm in Regina at the moment, at math camp, er, a math conference. I've been taking lots of photos of prairie dogs and the vast emptiness that is Saskatchewan, so I'll post some of that when I'm back.
I took this one evening around sunset, while I was playing around with long exposures. Redridge, like a lot of places set on streams or lakes, changes a lot during the spring. Streams become rivers, trickles become waterfalls, and springs appear out of nowhere. The Redridge dams, which don't really hold water any more, actually start to look like they're doing their jobs during the spring -- which unfortunately also means that they are slowly degrading, since they're not maintained any more.
