Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Snow melt cascades down
The grey, granite monuments
A race to the sea

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem Time Glass #29 Waterfall

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  3. This is Yosemite. I climbed up Vernal Falls and this was the plateau at the top. Vernal Falls is to the left of the frame and you can walk almost to the edge! The fall above in the shot is Nevada Falls. Yosemite is my favorite park other than Point Lobos in Carmel – you can dive and hike in that one.


  4. Fantastic range, DE. Thanks for filling me in. This East Coaster has never had the honor or the privilege of visiting Yosemite or Point Lobos in Carmel.

  8. Thought it looked familiar. Yosemite is one of my favorite places to just be.
    Sadly the race in California right now is for a drop rather than a cascade.
    Image is glorious
