Just below these little rock pools and waterfall is a swimming hole full of turtles called Sleepy Hollow. I took this many moons ago with a P&S and frankly it wasn't very good. But I've managed to process it up to something worth keeping until I go back and do better.

It's for real. It's well along forest tracks on dirt roads and natural peice of the creek.

Really cool. Love the first one the most - especially the little waterfall.

Only the teenage mutant ninja ones Kat ;) The freshwater turtles in these pools just hide from you :)

You're welcome MA.

Around here we have snapping turtles. They would definitely bite you if you annoyed them. :)

Looks really nice. Can't believe the original picture was "bad". But you've done great work here!

Oh it was crap. Taken on a P&S it had blown highlights on the rocks and other issues.
