Mare’s Tails in Winter

I have heard these waterfalls called both Mare’s Tails and Rooster’s Tails. This day they reminded me more of mares running and their tails streaming out in the wind. The rock formation in the stream bed causes the water to arch up and fall back down so that it looks like a tail. They create various abstract patterns using long exposure, which means keeping the shutter open longer to smooth out the water. It is also dependent on the volume of water going down the stream.

A puddle next to the stream reflected the trees.

I walked across the road to the 40 foot rock wall and saw this conversation between a person and a bird. Do you see it too?
