recently wendy drove me along little secret roads until we arrived at a place called ritchie falls. here there is a beautiful waterfall followed by some smallish rapids. what was truly astonishing and overwhelming for me was to get so near to that powerful force.
after a while, i needed ever so badly to be near a quieter sort of place and by chance i discovered several little rivulets that had somehow made their way under tree roots and around old lichen encrusted boulders.
the pictures i took today hold something of what i saw and felt of the very fragile light and colour that exists in these beautiful water pathways . . .
