Faces of the Falls

This is from my first visit to the Bells Canyon’s lower falls in October 2010…

…and five months later in March 2011….

…and in July 2011 at the height of the snow-melt…it was hard to photograph any closer because of the spray….

…in September 2011…

…and a couple months later in November 2011….

…and now in January 2012…the only time I’ve seen it frozen-over….  I could barely hear the water trickling beneath the ice….

It still thrills my heart to live in a place where there are significantly changing seasons…different times of the year when the natural world puts on another face and shares a side of herself that we would miss if we didn’t visit her often….

    Thanks for sharing the ‘falls’ images through the seasons – it was so interesting to see how much they change. Each season has its beauty.

  7. Scott, your photography is such a vision I can literally hear the falling water crashing down over the precipices.

  8. What amazing falls, it must have been a great time to be there at the height of the snow-melt. I love the light and contrast in your third picture.
