Waterfalls, Force of nature
The Daily post at WordPress has given us the task of photographing the Force of Nature.
I am a waterfall junkie. There is nothing better for me than to be near water, and especially a waterfall. The sound, the energy, it all soothes my soul. We went to Glacier National Park for our honeymoon in 2007. We hiked to as many waterfalls as we could in our 2 weeks there. It was amazing.
For today’s challenge I had to dig back into some photos I took last summer in Idaho. This waterfall is Mesa Falls and is such a beautiful place.
There are massive amounts of water going over this fall, the sound is exhilarating.
And on that same waterfall theme, I have to share my favorite painting, ever. Howard Terpning is one of my favorite artists. He has such a gift for telling a story. This painting is titled, “The forces of nature humble all men.” The original is a very large painting at 50″ across. How he depicts these Native Americans, and there relationship with the waterfall, is exactly how we feel. We would love to own a giclee of this. Maybe some day.
