Lampson Close up

Deciduous Forrest/ River environment
The area near Lampson has been shaped by the winding Grass river. The river every year rises and falls with the winter freeze and spring thaw, thus changing and creating the banks of the river. The landscape was influenced long ago by glacial recession over New York. The waterfall it self has been created by centuries of erosion and river water. This photo is a close up of a one foot opening its beautiful to see because its the first sign of spring seeing the river thaw. Its a beautiful to see because its a note that the cold of the winter will soon end. Seeing the river run is a nice reminder that spring will come.
