My son came over to watch the SuperBowl with us yesterday and he and I made a quick visit to The Bullhole, Cooleemee River Park during the early afternoon. It was his first time at The Bullhole and I happen to snap this photo of him with the falls in the background. He said it was bigger and more impressive then he thought from the photos I’ve posted. Now he understands why I keep coming back to this spot.
This is an example of how a photo’s perspective can be a bit misleading. Those falls in the background are almost 12 feet (3.66 meters) tall and 30-40 feet (9.14-12.19 meters) behind him. He’s standing on a rock ledge 10 feet (3.05 meters) above the fall’s base and that leaning piece of deadwood is nowhere near his feet. I was standing on the same ledge but a couple of feet higher.
For all the normal reasons, I seldom post family or friends photos here but I made an exception in this case.
