Trey Ratcliff: Photo of the Day April 30 2012 A Rock Cleaved

|

Photo Credit: Trey Ratcliff for StuckinCustoms It's renowned travel photographer Trey Ratcliff's photo of the day for April 30, 2012. Ah, how I envy him. This is shot in Iceland. At his photo a day site StuckInCommons he describes his photo, A Rock Cleaved: I need more waterfalls in my life! This is what I am thinking whenever I just finish taking photos of waterfalls. As I was walking away from this one in Iceland, where I spent most of the day, I was thinking about the next waterfall. Then the next one. Then the next one. I think it’s cool how something can be so violent and beautiful at the same time.
