No chance of this brook babbling...looks more like a sewage outlet!!

Nice one David.


Comment by Garry on 31st March 2016 at 07:46
This is typical why we have floods, this stream needs clearing out so the water flows more freely.


Comment by Helen of Troy on 31st March 2016 at 07:59
Where my son lives there is a spring that is this colour. I suppose the owners of the land have come in for so many pollution comments a notice has been put up to say the colour is quite natural


Comment by Anne on 31st March 2016 at 09:42
A nice natural piccy. It's the natural peat colour. The water in one of my least used toilets goes that colour if left unflushed for any length of time, as does any sponge if left wet.

I`ll repeat my comment on 30th May 2012 Photo-a-Day :-

Pity we can`t hear the birdsong David !!

A Woodland Walk

Once, when a-walking in Woodland Glade,
I saw such a funny man, sat in the shade,
with a coat of blue, and hat of green,
his trousers were red as ever Iíd seen,
Black high-legged boots shone like the sun.
whilst his eyes had a look, that was full of fun,
The hair was of copper, just touched with gold,
yet his beard was white, looking ever so old.
His hands were so tiny, fingers so small.
But then, you see, he was just two feet tall.

This story my seem much taller to you,
but how can YOU say that it isnít true?
Have you ever walked in a woodland glade,
never wondered what it was you saw,
in the shade?

It was there for a moment, then it had fled,
Was it a green hat, or copper gold head?
You have to be quiet, as still as can be,
if forest bred creatures, you desire to see,
for only those eyes which are quick and bright,
are able to see such a wonderful sight.

YOU, pause for a moment when next you are there,
take time in the woodland, to stop and to stare,
and, if not my little man, something as nice,
you will see in the wood,
if youíre quiet, like mice

It is only ochery, iron oxides from the soil, nothing wrong with it.


Comment by A.W. on 31st March 2016 at 12:29
Streams sometimes run that colour in areas where there is iron ore in the local geology.


Comment by Neil Cain on 31st March 2016 at 13:02
Nice play of colours and shadows. As Jonno says it's only ochery water, same as the Yellow Brook used to be.

Thanks, Mick. Have enjoyed your NZ video`s. I saw a pod of dolphins as well as fur seals in Milford Sound and there was snow outside Homer Tunnel in April 1996.
