Top O The Falls

Lichen can be so colorful.

THANK YOU for all of your kind comments regarding my photographs making the Color Spotlight a couple of times within the past week. That's never happened before. When it comes to making the Color Spotlight, I always feel like I cheated; Mother Nature deserves all of the credit.

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Lovely capture of the waterfall and its environment, but personally i find colors a little bit unreal and may be too much contrasted... the rendering is very hard... only my taste... :-)

Judy from Brooksville, Florida, United States

The moisture certainly saturates the colors ... and this 'curtain' of white water is gorgeous against it.

I get the feeling that this may make Spotlight too:) I love the splashes of yellow on either side of the waterfall, like sun spots. This waterfall is beautiful shot and looks like a curtain of silk flowing down the mountainside.

Sorry if I slammed your blog all at once. I just don't have the time to visit everyone every day. I get nothing else done but when I am here I try to see everything I missed and tend to comment a whole lot.

25 Jun 2010 2:42pm

@Dutch: My sentiment was one of gratitude, not criticism. I was touched that you would spend the time and the care commenting.
