A storm overtook us as we paddled canoes and kayaks down Chartiers Creek one evening. We took out and watched it from among trees on the bank as the world turned black then fogged with rain, lightning struck just over the hills around us and the creek ran faster and faster and rose foot by foot. It passed just as quickly as it had started and a sunny evening had turned to a violet dusk while shreds of mist rose and wafted around us like misty sails on unseen ships.

As always I took photos with my trusty little 2MP digital camera which I wore around my neck on a cord. This photo finally captured the mist and the dusk with just a little bit of blur and I’ve remembered it from that moment. Thirteen years have passed since that evening and this misty memory was one of the images I’d wanted to paint from all those canoe trips. The scene hardly looks like the little creek that runs behind a dozen small towns, once a dumping ground for mining and manufacturing and so polluted it was virtually dead, now alive and constantly in use, and often unbelievably beautiful.
