“By the waterside I will lay my head … listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul”
A gentle cascade of falling water along the Snake River, in Summit County, Colorado.
By Bob Berwyn
SUMMIT COUNTY — There aren’t many things more soothing than falling water, and living in the rugged Colorado Rockies means there’s always a stream nearby where the water burbles — or sometimes thunders — over a drop in the precipitous terrain. A water fall doesn’t have to be hundreds of feet high to be impressive (though it helps). Sometimes a fall of just a few feet can create an almost perfect expression of nature’s balance and harmony, and they’re always fun to photograph! Here’s my selection for the popular #FriFotos Twitter chat, where waterfall enthusiasts from around the world are sharing their favorite scenes. Join the fun by uploading pics to your stream and tagging with #FriFotos.

Waterfalls aren’t just for looking at. Mayfield Falls in Jamaica brings cool relief after a hot jungle hike.
OK, technically it’s not a water fall, but it’s falling water, right?
How often do you get to look straight down at a waterfall (unless you’re in a helicopter)? These are some falls at Škocjan Caves, a world heritage site in Slovenia.
Icy Straight Creek rushes through a shady pine forest near Dillon, Colorado.

So many songs about falling water … this image always makes me thing of Van Morrison’s “And it stoned me .”
More of a water trickle …
