It's easy to believe the elusiveness of these fairy falls. I wonder whether there was a pot of gold at the end of them...? :D

I attempted, unsuccessfully, to make the trek to the falls on two separate occasions. The first time my battery died before I reached the falls, the second time I reached the top of the gorge only to find that it was incredibly dark in the canyon 2 hours before sunset. Both times I was within 10 minutes of reaching the falls but aborted due to the impossibility of capturing them in camera, the last 1/2 kilometer before the falls is spectacular scenery, I will return!

I remember situations like this when you simply recognize that it was the wrong day, the wrong time, the wrong weather or whatsoever to visit a specific place. I haunted some places 3 or 4 times and never really got my lucky shot. :) Well, yet it's never wrong to keep on trying.

Very nice, Ken! The picture befits the name perfectly.

Thanks Ken, although the hike up the side of the gorge nearly killed me it was well worth the effort. The entire area was stunning, I have a few more images I need to process before posting.

Yesterday my wife and I visited a Monet exhibit and outside they had a gallery of a photographer named Jeff Mitchum. One of his photos was of a similar scene and my first thought was "that looks like Ken's photo". I'm looking forward to seeing some of those few more you mentioned.

Well thanks for thinking of me Ken. My wife will be returning home at the end of the week (after a 4 month absence) so I will probably be busy for a good while. This particular shot was intended more as a documentary (notice the sign) while the others I took were meant to be more aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately I experienced a little computer trouble that has prevented me from fully developing them sooner.

That sign part of what I like, which is the solidity through which the wispy water falls. Even the plants look unmoving.

I am sure you are thrilled to have Mrs. Kruse back from Rio and I hope the news there is good as well. Good luck with the computer.

I too like the sign, unfortunately it left little choices for composition by including it. I'm not real wild about the composition part but am happy with the rest of it. You are correct I am excited about her impending return! My mother in-law is coming to live with us and I am having fun preparing the spare bedroom for her to call her own, it is however consuming all my spare time!
