The rock and river are very different and they still find a way to coexist. The same is true for us in our relationships.
I was looking forward all week to getting out today into some fall scenery. I was not disappointed.
I found a small side road that went on the far side of the river bank. I parked and hiked on a short trail to get to the banks of the river. Along the short 100 yard hike, I passed a few interesting things.
While photographing the falls, I noticed a momma and daddy bird building a nest on the big rock at the falls.
As soon as I got out and shot some lazy pix from the bridge that crosses the river, I knew I had to do more. In fact, I went back and got a few more lenses and then started to really work the scene.
Again, my morning commune with nature and the outdoors took me to a wonderful experience of nature, beauty and relaxation.
