Just down from The Subway, there are multiple points where water flows gently down the surface of the slick, red rock. If not careful, between the water, pervasive moss, and the texture of the stone, it's rather easy to slip and fall.

I struggled a lot with this, as I wanted to show both the waterfall, but more interestingly to me, the hanging grass and the gentle curvature of the wall of rock. I don't think I've effectively illustrated any single aspect of what I was going for well, unfortunately. Thus, this is more of a "documentary" image than one of "art," in my eyes. That said, the area is still beautiful, and despite not having an elegant composition, I still find the image pleasant enough to look at.
