Down In The Glen

Hello from Fonferek's (MY) Glen. Wish you were here...

So, I needed to get away this morn ing...needed to do occupied. I made the quick trip out of the city to revisit this place where last year's photo project ended. It's sort of hard to believe just a few short months ago, when that last photo was taken, this waterfall was a solid mass of ice.
Now it's flowing nicely again although without substantial rainfall the sort of volume coming over the cliff at the moment will be short lived as winter's meltwaters are greatly diminished due to lack of snowfall this year.

Cloud cover provided good light for photographs when I arrived but within the hour the sky began to clear and the sun appeared. I had my shots done by then so the added warmth was welcome. Above me a strong, chilly wind blew, but down in the gorge, with the sun shining in, it was just perfect.
Nobody else came. I had the glen all to myself.
All told, I must have spent two hours shooting and exploring.
I do wish you'd been here but I did alright on my own. Places like this, though most often experienced alone, never feel lonely to me.

I'll see you again somewhere down the road...


  1. It is nice to see the falls again. If I'm not mistaken it was this falls that you took the shot that we used when I featured you on my Guest Photographer Feature. I've never been there, but they almost feel like home to me from your 365 project. Thanks for sharing them again.

  2. I know the feeling well - to have some spot to yourself, soaking it in (well, not literally), and simply losing track of time. And a single spot can yield so many treasures - photographic and otherwise. This is another wonderful shot.
