Here is where I ended up today. It's my 52nd birthday!
















Look at where I went.





This is off Windy Hill Rd. in Middle Falls, just west of  Greenwich.



















This is my scene, WOW.




















My first blocks. This is the first vertical painting in ...














I started at 12:30 and went to 2:30, had a few visitors this is about 1/2 way.  It was challenging painting looking down, and behind the foliage on the right,  The trees on the left hug the waterfall, a fact that eluded me until I got it back huh?




















I'm going to change the line between the fore-ground tree and the waterfall. I also don't know why it was so hard for me to get the sun-lit portions of the white water to jump out, as they did maybe taking the value of everything else!














I admit that when I first heard about this falls, I imagined a rock ledge, no railing and yeah, but this was nice and safe, oh well!
