View 220: Little Taughannock Falls

Little falls on the creek in the Taughannock Falls State Park near Ithaca, New York.

I have shown you plenty of photos of Taughannock Falls over the last year.  At 215 feet (65.5m), it is one of the tallest waterfalls east of the Mississippi River.  The gorge the falls created over centuries contains the creek with several smaller water drops like this one.  A mere 1.5 feet (0.45m) tall, it still can erode through rock over time.

I know it is now March and Karma’s Photo Hunt for February is over. I could not resist taking this photo of an unusually shaped piece of ice I found along the Taughannock Falls State Park gorge trail.

Wonder if this ice was naturally shaped or had the help of a love struct human.

    Heart shaped heart! **Follow our hearts** that’s what it’s saying. I stared at the energy in the waterfall for some time. It was captured beautifully, Scott.
