Sometimes I find our brooks so appealing and full of interest that I am like a kid in a candy store…I can’t just have one cascade. And Atherton Brook is especially that way with so many rock assemblages that create cascades of complex elements. I am sure to many people they all look the same but each has individual qualities…at least in my view.
These will be my last from Sunday’s hike.
This is a more intimate view of one part of the waterfall that started this series.
One of the things that I enjoy about these is the way angles meet and merge. This next cascade is made up of so many different facets. I reduced the exposure a bit to capture a little more detail in the motion and splashes.
And finally a phone capture while walking along the brook.
One theory about the trunk is that this grew on a nurse tree that has now decayed and disappeared leaving that huge gap. It is one tree although appears to be two leaning upon each other.
We’ve had so much rain, more coming tomorrow, that I’ve wanted to take advantage of the increased flows. Eventually, I think, the levels will drop as they usually do but maybe not to the point we’ve seen in recent years with summer droughts.
