Life On the Edge

Uploaded: October 24, 2002


The historic Smuggler-Union powerhouse in Telluride. It's located at the top of 360-foot-plus Bridal Veil Falls, the biggest waterfall in the state. The powerhouse operated from 1904 to 1954 and is now on the Historic Register. People live there!

Wow what an awesome picture. I could never live there. I could just imagine where all my friends would be after just one party. #11502

Great photo! Guess you couldn't live there and say, "You kids go outside and play." #19121

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
