For this image I used a Dolica 70" Carbon Fiber tripod....for me, this shot would never have been possible without my friends Daniel and April at Dolica Tripods.
Water fascinates the soul, the spirit, and the body...we need it to survive, and there is something so calming and beautiful in the entrancing dance of water as it falls down a cascade...This parallels here to my life lately...I have been fascinated lately, entranced and dancing, full of life, love and positivity...this waterfall pictured here is spring-fed, and it feeds into and helps to enliven the Sacramento river with its flow, just as the things i love flow into me and help to enliven me with life...
"Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it's a feather bed.” ― Terence McKenna
“Nothing can help me but that beauty. There was a dawn I remember when my soul heard something from your soul. I drank water from your spring and felt the current take me.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi
"Fascinate" is a composition of a detailed smaller section of the Mossbrae Waterfall that flows down one of the rock walls along the Sacramento River Gorge just north of Dunsmuir in Northern California close to Mount Shasta...beautiful waterfall in its entirety, but very hard to capture the entire thing and do it a beautiful justice...but in small sections, there are hundreds of compositions that you could take...

“As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can" ― John Muir
“The secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?" That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.” ― Gautama Buddha
As always, I hope this message and image find you well.
