And the sound set his teeth on edge. Marilyn is that a rock, standing there in the water?

Greetings - Frank.

A very small, but beautiful island! Shows also nature always wins. Gr, Ed.

Marylin I like very much this dynamic water and your shot is beautiful !

Marilyn Whiteley on October 19, 2008

Thanks for your comments, Frank, Ed, and lavieorange. Yes, the island is a rock that has been partly fortified by concrete to slow the ravages erosion.

Sometime when we are feeling extravagant, we'll have lunch at the old mill, now restaurant, at the left edge of the photo, to see what views it has to offer!

Greetings, Marilyn

This is cool. I love unusual scenes and this one is no exception Marilyn. Looks like a little forest on that human reinforced rock. :) I love it. Well spotted and captured. Can you get below and take shots looking back up the waterfall at it?

Best regards, Tom

I'm glad you like it, Luca and Tom.

Tom, as far as I know, the only way to get the lower view is by white water rafting, and I'm not sure my camera and I are up to that! But I plan to investigate the area some more.

Best wishes, Marilyn

Delightful place, Marilyn! Please, don't get wet during your investigations!

Warm regards, Eva

I promise to be careful, Eva! Thanks for your comment. Best wishes, Marilyn

Great title, Marilyn. Interesting that they are trying to preserve the rock with concrete. Looks like a vase full of greenery, for your lunch table setting ;-). A wonderful setting, especially if you can eat outdoors and enjoy the roar as well. Best, alicia

Very powerful in your treatment of the spillway.

Marilyn Whiteley on October 28, 2008

Thank you, Alicia and Hank. I'm slow in replying because we just got back from San Francisco. We returned to chilly weather. I'm afraid the outdoor dining will have to wait until next spring! Cheers, Marilyn
