I was REALLY looking forward to THIS Photoshoot! After ALL those storms we had this week, I figured this would be great!
But, alas, once I got there, it looked like a drought! WHAT???
After all those floods I trudged through every morning just to get to work, then THIS?
Even as I write this, there's a massive storm & floods everywhere today! But, on Saturday, THIS is what was there.

Here are just a few extra frames I shot experimenting with "Tv" mode on my DSLR CANON REBEL XS at the Magarge Dam Waterfalls on the Wissahickon Creek in Chestnut Hill Philadelphia, PA.

Along the Wissahickon Creek, Forbidden Drive, and Rex Ave. at some point you will come to a stone bridge. The bridge has a uniquely ancient stone gateway and winding staircase that leads up to a trail....
I haven't gone through the whole trail yet, but I am told there is a statue of an Indian Chief (Native American) of the Leni Lanape Nation there. But, Pennsylvania is so thick with foliage growth in summer that it couldn't be seen unless you took the trail.
It was so hot, and I didn't want to drop my camera equipment off the cliff, so I haven't braved the trail yet.
This spot seems to be an especially popular landmark to photograph. I've found SO many blogs, and photos of it posted on Flickr, often with poems of fantasy themes or captions. It really captures people' imagination! It's especially a popular subject for HDR fans.
The edge of a wall
This is what you'll see at the top of the stairs...
The view from atop the stairs, looking down
The trail on the cliff above atop the stairs...
