Behind South Falls, in Silver Falls State Park, Oregon. There are several classic waterfalls in the park, but South Falls is my favorite off ALL waterfalls I've seen.

Really MAGNIFICENT work, Ken. I see why these are your all-time favorites.

A favorite for me too, in the BP sense.

Wow! How primeval is that? Spectacular capture Ken; congratulations! (There's a waterfall I'm visiting in Iceland, that supposedly you can walk behind--after seeing this image, I've definitely gotta give it a try. Though I won't have the lush greenery that knocks your image out of the park!)
