Terry Hall Arts - Cypress at Gordon Creek

Gordon Creek feeds into the Chickahominy River just before the Chickahominy feeds into the James River.  This is in Virginia, along Route 5 between Richmond and Williamsburg.  This is a slow, tidal, swampy/marshy creek with cypress trees growing along the shore.
