A guy in my English class did that once. He told me he was going to do it too. His name was (and still is, I presume) Seamus. "I'm gonna do a wee so I can get out of class," he said. A couple of minutes later I heard it dribble and pour...

I can't think of a moral code for that little story so it can't be elevated to "anecdote" status. Sorry.

So, I guess we need to know if Mr. Lamont followed through with his threat. And if he got out of class.

What an amazing place! I love all the different textures of ruffles in the falling water, and as for the rainbow and the light -- surreal! Fascinating, in fact, like layers of different places slotted together like an enormous cardboard model. I will have to read back and see if you have done something to this photo, or not, but I just spotted that it's nearly 1 am, so now is not the time nor the place for my investigation. Darn it. Good day or night, not1word, hope you're feeling fine up there in the far north!

Best wishes,

Hi there, Sue. I'll be the first to admit, this is a fairly busy shot, but everything that you see is exactly as it was when I released the shutter. I do like your description of all of it, though. Thank you very much!

What not1word doesn't tell us, is that he had asked the waterfalls to gather in this place, so he could take a nice picture of the whole lot of them together. We all do that at family meetings, don't we?

That's a funny take on this shot, Norrel. The locals were really annoyed, too, especially that one guy that had three of them walking across his corn field.

wellll, I'm wondering if in fact there are this many waterfalls gathered. Considering who snapped the photo, I wouldn't be surprised if only one waterfall showed up and n1w used this same method.

Ouch, kamalyn, you don't know how close that one hits to home. A number of years ago, when I first started figuring out how to mess with digital photos, I took a regular negative shot of a small little cascade of water. When I got home, what I thought would be a pretty little quite scene was actually quite boring. So, I spent a couple of hours messing around with it, and tripled the waterfall effect, and not too badly, I must say. I didn't even think about the connection until you said that. Now none of my shots will be trusted. Oy vey!
