Another wonderful series! I think I remember you posting shots of the same waterfall with very green foliage (and more water), or else another one with similar geology. I prefer these, there's a delicateness to these pictures and the colors are wonderful. They are (barely) my favorites of the series, but really the whole set is just awesome.

Hmmm, I thought I commented on this post already but, apparently not.
Anyway, another great series, Mole. I really enjoy them.

Frogfish - Thanks so much! There sure were some lovely reflections that day - light was just right for it!

NMR - So glad you liked them! The Smilax berries will probably hang around for a while, not the highest quality wildlife food, so usually left for later in the season...

Harriet - I have indeed posted many photos of this little waterfall, just never when it was so low. Glad you liked it this way too!

GW - Thanks so much

PS - for Harriet - here is the same falls this past January (the ones posted at the start of this post are from the far right side of the falls, the rest was dry!):

do your trees die after a fire ? or do they resprout?
i like the reflections in the water photos and the waterfalls
and all your photos help tell the story

John - Glad you enjoyed these. So sorry to be late in answering your question - have been out on the trail and working with students past few days. To answer your question, some species of trees will die after a fire, but many can resprout, and some can tolerate a fair amount of heat. It also depends on the severity and duration of the fire. At Buffalo Mt, it was quite a hot fire, and most of the big trees have died back to the roots. But there are a lot resprouting, and a lot of heat-tolerant seedlings that are taking advantage of the suddenly opened-up forest canopy.
