scrabble by dittto


by dittto in water

a revisit to hard scrabble falls proved that this will be a new getaway place for me as its not a well known fall, so solitude is almost a given and even if not, few make the difficult climb to the upper tiers shown here :)

though it looks harmless, this visit proved the power the water holds, though not shown in this shot, the lower left rock here....which measures roughly 3' wide and tall had completely washed away over the bottom tier, a reminder to be careful when exploring close to waterfalls!

    Would've know why it is a getaway place for you! Such a beautiful place! The ruggedness of the area seems very appealing to those who seek adventure! Much agree that the relationship of water and rocks really is well shown on this capture! Could even imaging the smell of this place through its colors on the shot... As always, great work Addam!

    this tranquil place doesn't give away the secret of the long and difficult climb.... (which was most worth !) so paradise like as it is...... oh i love your capture, Addam.... the angle you decided to do.... these massive bonds of rocks showing natures layers.....enfolded by soft and fresh greens.... and the fall... what a strong companionship.. this closeness...a tender relationship between rock and water..... you gave this fall a very personal note.... absolutely fantastic work my dear.....
