Art Roundup, week of April 9th

Over the course of last week, I dropped four more pictures from my exploration of The Cave of the Wind on DeviantArt. Each of these features the falling whitewater cascading down the cliff side of Goat Island. If you see any images here that aren’t available on Natural Desygns or SM Desygns reach out to me through the Etsy store, and I’ll add the image to the correct store. In the meantime, click any of the images to head over to DeviantArt to get a better look.

Trickling Water

As we began our climb, the catwalk snaked around the rocky surface, creating numerous miniature waterfalls, all fed from the cascading water of the main Falls. Besides the flowing water, the greenery blooming from the stones created a truly unique landscape that never fails to remind me of the wonder I experience walking along that misty path.

As we wound our way along the catwalk, a portion of the cascading waters came into view over the vegetation. The roar of the rushing whitewater is a memory that still sends chills rushing down my spine. However, instead of fear or dread inspiring them, it was the awe from nature’s display of power.

Initial Spout

Dueling Spouts

As we neared the observation deck, the major portion of the falls flowing over Goat Island came into view. As the mist from the falls washed over us, I was awestruck at the majesty of the Niagara Falls. Watching the water cascade off the rocky shores was something that I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life.

After leaving the main observation deck, I turned back to capture another sight of the cascading waters. Of course, with the constant misting, I quickly turned and rushed toward dryer portions of the catwalk. Once we were free from the constant misting, I thumbed back to the image and smiled as I witnessed the water tumbling past a beautiful patch of foliage.
