Lampson Falls

This landscape is a photo of Lampson Falls. The falls are a popular trail and recreational spot as well as a important water source for the surrounding ecosystem. The Grasse River runs through the falls and into the St. Lawrence River. The falls are home to lots of bio-diversity and is a classic example of the forests of the North Country. These powerful falls have a vertical drop of approximately 100ft. The area is surrounded by glacial rocks and is lined by a small beach.

I found this photo really scenic and dramatic. I liked how the trees framed the falls and created a picturesque view. The contrast of ice and the power from the falls draws the eye visually.
