Psalm 42:7,8 Deep calls to deep at the roar of you waterfalls, all your breakers and your waves have gone over me. By day the Lord commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life (Psalm 42:7,8)
There is something about waterfalls that just draw us as fishermen who search the deep pools below them for what is often the strongest fish a particular stream. But like the psalmist, they call to something deeper in me. Their beauty, power, and thundering music have a way of reminding me that I am not the center of things, that I am small in the scheme of things.
I have had the pleasure of hiking to, photographing, and fishing below waterfalls all over the eastern US so I thought I would share some my favorite images of waterfalls from southern Appalachia, southern New England, and the Adirondack mountains in New York State.
Here are two of my favorite waterfalls in CT. They aren't big thundering falls by any means but beautiful nevertheless. For me they hold fond memories of the people that I have shared these spaces with over the years.
