A Fallen Tree

A fallen pine tree by a stream in the West Kill mountains, NY.
Medium: Watercolor | Paper: Arches Cold Press
Some information about the place:
The stream ends up in the West Kill River. The West Kill flows for 11 miles before entering
Schoharie Creek just below the village of Lexington. Wild trout are found throughout the stream,
but they are most abundant in the upper 8 miles. Wild brown trout can be found in all sections of the stream, but rainbow trout are found mostly in the lower reaches, and brook trout numbers increase as one heads upstream.

That iPhone Shot: X.O.

North light from the windows and some manipulation of the light
helped make this picture on the kitchen countertop click.
