Being a dad and a grampa, I'm quite used to kids bouncing off the walls. Consequently, I always enjoy catching them in more contemplative moods, like the one I shot 5 years ago of my brother's nephew, Clayton, and the one I'm posting today, of my granddaughter, Annie. I was originally thinking she was contemplating the power of thousands of gallons of water, pouring over a short stone cliff every second (foolish me). Later I discovered she was actually watching the pile of foam at the base of the rocks, hoping the wind might lift a clot of bubbles and float them through the air to where a six-year-old girl might be able to touch them. At the very least, to bring the suds to her before her sister got the chance. Siblings. What can I say. 4

Very nice composition. I agree, this is the perfect spot to look at the falls and dream.

This is the quietest that I saw my 6-year-old granddaughter on this 3-day trip (wedding - her first). She is a very precocious princess chatterbox.

'Nik' I was smiling about your additional comment above.

It's normal for a 6 years young granddaughter to exhibit chatterbox behavior, if not there's something wrong, 😁 !

Your photograph is again a beautiful one. I agree for more than 100% with Sandi that having your granddaughter in this capture was a good choice. She adds that the viewer - without having read your narrative - wonders what her thoughts and/or contemplations are by 'observing' this beautiful scene.
A beautiful moment captured forever with this photograph!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

I too agree your granddaughter adds much to this scene - I might have thought of that foam too at any age!
