So, for those of you who thought the waterfall picture would be better in color, I give you several views of the Upper Yantic Falls located on the Yantic River in Norwich, Connecticut. What's really nice about these falls now is that they are in walking distance of my house so expect even more pictures in the future!
This picture shows the falls in their entirety if you are standing near the railroad trestle that I had pictures of yesterday. See the side of the old dam to the right in the picture? That's where I was standing when I took the last shot in this series of pictures. I've not decided yet whether I was being incredibly brave or incredibly stupid!
As you can see from this shot, on the far side of the falls, the water goes around and tumbles down a face of rocks. There's a memorial cross just to the left of where this shot ends which I think was put there for the last drowning victim. The area is posted with no swimming signs but apparently some people think that doesn't apply to them. Trust me, it does.
This is the picture that I originally posted in black & white yesterday. I think I may have to agree with everyone that color adds more definition to the picture and the more I look at it in this version, the more I like it!
I hope you've enjoyed my version of Sunday Scenery this week. Don't forget to swing by Lee's Tarheel Ramblings and see who else participated in his great Sunday Scenery meme! Also, if I haven't been around to visit your blog lately, I will get there soon - honest! It's been a busy couple of days and I spent most of yesterday finally getting my living room to look like a living room and not just a storage area. Thanks to my mom and the help of a friend's husband and son I finally have a sofa and loveseat again! Now if I could just figure out what I'm doing with the rest of the junk in the dining room ...
