Today being a humid and hazy day, I had difficultly deciding where to go with my camera. We've had a strange Spring, cold and dreary until this past week. It has finally begun to get warm again at long last. I have a list of places that I go each season, some old favorites and some new. Digging through this, I decided to head to Bushkill Falls. It was just warm enough for a hike and the hazy sky would help prevent harsh shadows in my images. I spent the afternoon wandering the trails and feeling very out of shape. Hiking is good not only for the body but also for the mind. It's very peaceful to just hear the sound of birds and a rushing river full of life. One thing that struck me was how lush the plants were at each of the falls. At the main waterfall a constant mist curled from the base of the fall and blanketed the cliff and overhang in its fine spray. All of the ferns, moss and tiny wildflowers on the cliff were green, vibrant and dewy. Near sunset, the golden light finally poured through the forest canopy. The little wildflowers all seemed to lean and bask in the glow.
"A dark little waterfall, all lush and full of life."
