Watery Wednesday

Today's Watery Wednesday post is dedicated to our friend Betsy over at Joyful Reflections, who has given us so much enjoyment sharing her magnificent waterfall photographs. I found these when we were driving through Mount Rainier National Park a few weeks ago.






Thanks Betsy, for inspiring me to take a few of my own. I can see why you love waterfalls, I think I am hooked.

Beautiful photos! I loved the waterfalls I saw in Croatia back in 1990. There are nice waterfalls on Na Pali in Kauai, too. Waterfalls are so refreshing!

I like your waterfalls! I too like taking pictures of waterfalls and streams. I like to play with the shutter speed to make the water smooth and to also freeze the water. I like all your photos!!

They look very refreshing on this hot day. I love to stop at the falls along the road to Paradise in Mt Rainier Nat'l Park.
There are wonderfull waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge too. The most amazing waterfalls I've ever seen were on Norway, in early June, as the snow was melting of the high mountains and down into the fjords.

I just love waterfalls. I think I read somewhere that Oklahoma has just two natural waterfalls, and I've seen them both, so I have to enjoy everybody else's.

The power and the noise of large waterfalls is incredible. Moving water is always entrancing.

Every now and again I am checking up on old posts. It allows me to visit people I may have missed and I am very happy to pay a visit to those blogs I haven't seen in a while. It's also a chance to retrieve those whom I have lost on my blog roll recently. Thank you, although a bit belatedly, for all your wonderful comments.
