Inglis Falls

After photographing Eugenia and |Hogg's Falls, we headed off on a drive to Owen Sound to see Inglis Falls.  We had heard that it was roaring too, and once we got there we thought that there had maybe been more rain in that area than we even had here.  It was overwhelming!

The falls was thundering like I have never seen it before, a complete torrent everywhere!

I started at the dam just above the falls, where the dam was completely overwhelmed by water roaring underneath us.

Under the bridge it went, and over the lip of the falls.

Looking at the falls below, it's hard to believe that there could be so much water.

And the stream down the gorge below was simply white with a torrent of water.

I'm not sure that the two 'slower' pictures of water I tried show the water as well as the 'fast' pictures when there is this much water flowing, and the whole atmosphere is full of spray.  The water is so white that there is no contrast to show up.

Just for comparison, I'd better show you a picture of typical mid-summer lower flow, when you can actually climb up the rocks if you're adventurous.

  
I tried another little video, enjoy, especially the sound track!

  2. Wow again. I agree that the "fast" pictures show the water best, but that video is best of all! :-)

  3. With that much water flowing over I'll bet a few rocks will have been moved. You really had a lot of rain.

  7. A huge difference in the amount of water. In fact, I like the lacy look of the summer flow. Our snow is starting to melt in the high country. With only two days of rain, our lake rose about a foot in the last ten days. - Margy

  8. I feel quite deprived that N London is not chock full of wonderful waterfalls. We have a minuscule weir on the tiny local brook - which is usually about 3" deep but can rise to fill its channel in a matter of hours or even flood the whole of the little park it runs through. But no waterfalls.
    I hope Mrs FG is a waterfall fan?

  13. Great shots FG. I can imagine how it felt standing on the bridge upstream of the falls feeling the vibration of the rushing water.
