That water doesn't look very inviting, does it?
I've heard that kayakers like it ... but nobody was out trying it in the rain.
What a shot! It is definitely dramatic, and the dreary day just adds to the mood.
I can certainly see why the kayakers would be attracted to such a place, and I think you captured it perfectly.
I bet our friend, Michel would love to go down this in his kayak!
It's impressive too that the place is situated in what appears to be the middle of a town...it seems so rugged and out of the way from the photo. :-)
You certainly have some special watery landscapes in Canada. The mood here is specially communicated, Mailyn.
Could be good for white water rafting, Marilyn.
Cheers, Tony in New Zealand
Wonderful shot! I like it very much! Best wishes from Russia! :)
Good Morning Marilyn, Thanks for the visit. Your gorge is beautiful with rugged power and the beautiful flowers. I like things like this where you can see hear and feel the place. All the senses are happy. I got this new camera back in March and I have only taken 250 shots with it. Life is very busy right now. It was a tad expensive for the lenses and body and I can't figure out any of the menus on the body and I always have the hand book out. Hopefully I will catch on to using it..... But it really isn't about the camera. It's the scenery, how you find it, the way you compose the shot and how you put yourself into it. Any way, thanks for the kind words (maybe I should have flipped the picture 180 degrees and cropped off the overexposed part!) Have a great day.
Thank you, Mary Alice, Hank, Ian, Tony, Igor, and Rich. I'm glad you can feel the atmosphere of this scene as the rain poured down on the river, the rocks, and the lilacs.
Yes, Hank, it feels surprisingly remote even though it is in the middle of town!
Rich, you mentioned hearing. How appropriate! I took the picture from the little balcony of the mill which appears in this photo. We could have had lunch on the balcony--the tables were sufficiently protected from the rain. But it was deafening! We ate inside instead.
I am reading comments here from you Marilyn, which are telling me that this is the middle of town, so I have just had to visit the GE map to check. What a doubting Thomas I am. What a place to live - it must be wonderful to take a walk from home and see this river in full flood like this, and I hope you can hear my comment above the roar :)
Greetings from FEIKA
Marilyn this sure has a lot of atmosphere! We have entered our summer drought (already) and haven't had rain for weeks. I know what you mean about deafening though -- that sure looks like a downpour! Good for you to think of taking a photo; I bet everyone else was enjoying their coffee indoors!
What a lovely dreamy misty image of a slightly awesome place ~ and fancy having this in your back yard :) ~ Nice work ~ Ciao nick
Belated thanks, Amelia, Feika, Naitka, and Nick. Seeing this reminds me that we've intended to go back for lunch on when the weather was more cheerful. We must do that!
Marilyn, this is really great, erosion of the rocks together with such vegetation on top of them. Impressive! Ciao. Andrea
I'm glad, Andrea, that you understand what I especially like about this place! Greetings, Marilyn
Here is a winter view.
