Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Straight Lines

Straight Down

The straight lines of these stairs and bridge invite the hiker to come close to the flowing waters of Little Clifty Falls. Twenty years ago or so these stairs and the bridge weren’t there. Hikers crossed over by walking across the top of the waterfall. Oddly I never felt scared (of the height) and the rocks didn’t seem too slippery. The bridge does give it character but I still prefer to be close to the falls, to touch and experience it.

He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Sunday Nature Quote: The Earth’s Eye

A lake is the landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature. The fluviatile trees next the shore are the slender eyelashes which fringe it, and the wooded hills and cliffs around are its overhanging brows.
