    Dog Bite Falls

    I was out having some fun photographing this little brook and came across this tiny falls. Couldn't believe my eyes. The falls looked like a black and white dog biting a rock. When I look closely I think I can even see its ears. Thought I would share. Cheers, Chuck

    That's wonderful. Well seen, Chuck. You need to get that name registered.

    Perhaps "Dog Bite Cascade" works. I think the rock is going to lose out in that battle. The dog looks mighty fierce.

    Mike, how far does water have to fall to become a water fall? One thing for sure - one simply doesn't feel the power in this cascade that you captured in your Iceland falls. - chuck

    I don't know the definition of a waterfall but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that there are several. A ranger once told me the U.S. definition of a natural arch and I seem to think that it had to be at least 3 feet across in at least one direction. (Don't hold me to that.)

    I think it would be more apt to say that the tranquility of this scene doesn't have the power of other scenes with tall waterfalls...and vice versa. I like both styles of waterfalls, cascades, or whatever we should be calling them. Also keep in mind that none of my images of waterfalls include rock-biting dogs.

    Mike, I suspect that I did stretch the definition a bit, probably by many feet. Just couldn't think of the word cascade at the time, and ripple just didn't seem to fit. Didn't let that fact bother me when I used the word falls. Do go back and check your waterfalls images. In some respects they are like clouds. If you look at them long enough you may find some surprises.

    LOL, chuck

    Donald, thanks for the note. As you can see, there may need to be some adjustments made before registering the name.
