Rushing Waterfall

Well, this photo was taken today, after the record storms and rainfall we've had in this area the past few days. The waterfall that I love to take pictures of (here in the summer, here in the winter) was overflowing with water, and the river was rushing so furiously that it was actually quite scary.

I'm happy, though, that I was able to get these pictures - shortly afterwards, the fire department came out and made people get away from the river, in the fear that someone might fall in!

LOTR! ^o_o^
This picture reminds me of LOTR for some reason. xD; But it's a really cool shot, the intensity of the water is contrasted by the otherwise peaceful bridge scene.

Oooh! It really does - it's so huge and overpowering, I think...

:love: Thank you!

Holy crap! :wow: Damn, I remember the other pic of this bridge you have, and wow, what a difference. Still very pretty though!
taeliac's avatar
Yeah, the weather really wrecked havoc with everything, including this area... I don't even know what happened, but the road is closed off still *whines*

Yikes! That really sucks. -__-

Woah. Beauty and the Beast in another sense. It's amazing how nature can portray both in one image. And awesome job capturing it. :D

Beautiful composition with the bridge and the trees. The rushing water makes the whole picture so dynamic!
taeliac's avatar
Thank you! I just knew I had to try to get a picture of the water as crazy as it was - I'm just utterly amazed the camera took this picture, to be quite honest ^^;

Cameras do like to give good surprises, from time to time. :nod:

Wow, that is an amazing differencing, comparing the earlier pictures with this one. It's so peaceful and serene in the others, but raging and wild here.

I know! It was quite shocking to actually see what is normally a quite little area in the park become this crazy rushing river - I haven't been able to get down there recently, to see what damage was done, but I hope it's not too bad... :hug:
