I agree with Derek that it is hard to pick a favorite, but for me, maybe the first or the second one would be my favorite. The third photo is a very close third. But for me, I think that I have to go with the second photo. That photo to me is kind of foreboding like I don't really want to be there. It feels like the water is rushing towards me and is going to carry me away. But it is beautifully done, as they all are. Great work! Regards, Dean

Thank you so much Dean for the thoughtful and generous words.

It is very gratifying to me when people enjoy the images I have posted.

Interestingly, I forgot my usual tripod when I arrived to this area. I only had a smaller lighter tripod that I sometimes use for longer walks. As a result, all of these images were made closer to the ground than I normally would do; perhaps this is leading people into the scene in a more emotional way, which may have contributed to your reaction to the second image.

All the best, john
