Onophotopoeia

Some times even the most mundane of scenes, the most commonplace of faces or the most trivial of objects prove to be a cradle of beauty...unleashing new meanings when looked at again and again. The true magic of photography lies in the fact that we can capture the fleeting moments to revisit them...to listen to the music that the image resounds... Onophotopoeia...

Life in the fast lane...

Zoar valley is a relatively unknown place in upstate NY. The entrance to the massive gorge is tucked away beside a small village and very few people actually go there. As a result this place is far more pristine and exciting than most other hiking trails scattered in the area. An hour and a half long hike leads to a waterfall which offers an ultra-soothing natural jacuzzi. More than that...the hike itself offers breathtaking views of the gorge and the river. This photo was taken near the falls (in fact its just around the corner). I thought good ol' B&W did more justice to this photo than its colored counterparts...

@vb: Another try to emulate Ansel Adams eh...? :)

@everyone: Thanks for your comments. My fav snap of the trip is the one taken while we were showering at the falls...however we all (including Mr. GOW who has commented above) were topless...deeming the snap unfit for a public forum! :)
