Love the sidelight that was coming through the trees down at St. Patrick's Island!! Can't wait to get back down there and shoot the water reflections again!! And see what else I can find!!

I love shooting backlit subjects. Not always the easiest to do, take a little practise and a good eye to find such things. Always have to keep looking to see what you can find along the way!!

I have been experiencing some with abstract images ... still learning but having fun with it as well. That really is the name of the game isn't to have fun ... and if you learn a little along the way.
This pleasant rest area, and the creek flowing through it, have been named after Walter Burchette, one of the four prospectors who discovered the Sullivan Mine. The other miners were Pat Sullivan, John Cleaver and Ed Smith.
Burchette was the first to discover ore at the site in his float, just a little farther up the Mark Creek valley. The team then found the source, staked two claims, “Hamlet” and “Shylock”, and recorded it. The discovery was to become the famous Sullivan Mine. The party of four worked their claims from 1892-1896, then sold to the Le Roi people for $24,000, “mighty big money in those days.”
You can learn more about the Sullivan Mine with a visit to the Orpheum Theatre, a train ride through the Mark Creek Valley and a tour of the Power House.
