15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Spirit in the Falls

This photo was taken in Terryville Connecticut also known as Plymouth Connecticut at Buttermilk Falls. I have often felt this waterfall might have been sacred to Native Americans and this photo seems to bring display this feeling I have as it appears to have a rock spirit in the waterfall seeming to be there to guard and protect this place. I can even see a beady eye that appears to sparkle. I can also see a strong brow that appears to be a scowling expression, a wide mouth and beneath it a long chin.
