Smith Falls

For Watery Wednesday ...

The following two photos show Smith Falls, not too far from Hampton, New Brunswick. The falls are absolutely stunning, but due to a lot of snow and ice on a steep incline I would have had to descend to reach the base, I could only go halfway down to take photos. The first picture shows some of the upper falls, and the second, the lower. I am anxious to go back again when all the snow in the woods is melted as I think the view of the whole falls together will be amazing.

Posted by: "Guest Blogger" Riel. This will be my final post as guest blogger, as I am thrilled my mother will be back to her photography and blogging again.

Thanks to Watery Wednesday. The theme of Watery Wednesday is water; for a wonderful variety of watery scenes from other bloggers around the world, just click on its name.

Does this mean we will not be able to see the entire falls? I hope you Guest Blog it as I love waterfalls.

We've enjoyed your guest blogging, Riel and hope you will pop in occasionally as a guest again to say hello! However, we are thrilled along with you to know your mom is back! These falls are beautiful! I think going even half way down might be a bit scary with that much water rushing over.

You mean the falls get more amazing than this? I would love to see some waterfalls for myself. I'm a little jealous.

Beautiful, natural falls. Very dramatic. My WW is of falls, too. But from an old dam.

Happy Wednesday to you!

I'm guessing the falls are particularly full of water just now during the melt. They are fantastic. Im looking forward to seeing the complete setting in the future but for now I'm full of admiration for that first bit.

What a wonderful shot of the tumbling water - doesn't the air always feel so good around active water like that. Thank you, Riel for all your very enjoyable posts, and for the good news that your mom is able to return to blogging - and many other things she loves!
