Trickle Before the Flood

On the way back from a trip to Hocking Hills State Park I decided to stop at the O’Shaughnessy Reservoir to try to get some sunset photos of the dam (I’d been there once before but was hoping for a “fall” look on the trees this time.) I was disappointed because the water was barely trickling over the dam, so I couldn’t get the shot I wanted. The last time I was there, this wall was completely covered in water to where you couldn’t see the rocks at all. It would have been a neater shot if there were more plants and less slime, but this was still ok.

While there, a couple of young girls demonstrated how to break one of the rules of being around someone that has a camera and a tripod who is obviously taking a photo, while they climbed up on the stones you see in the photo here and played around for a good fifteen minutes while I tried to pretend I wasn’t annoyed.
