This Recurring Dream
Washington · USA
Photos of Falls Creek Falls from this lower perspective are becoming increasingly common these days, and while the novelty of it could be expected to wear off, hopefully the visceral impact of it won't. It certainly doesn't feel that way when you're standing there flanked by steep canyon walls rimmed with towering old-growth trees like oversized palisades, skin refreshingly cooled by waves of mist generated by the 91-foot-tall lower tier, eardrums under constant assault by the endless hydraulic reverberations. No, I don't see myself ever becoming numb to this scene, be it under conditions of abundant sunshine, clouds, rain, or, someday hopefully, snow and ice.
