Middle Sabbaday Falls in Autumn

Sabbaday Falls, in the southern White Mountains of New Hampshire, is a set of wateralls carved through granite by melting glacial waters at the end of the last ice age. The top fall is a five-foot punchbowl, followed by a 22-foot drop (pictured here), after which the book turns immediately to the right, and plunges another eight feet down a narrow chute. One of the most unique features of this waterfall at this time of year is how the autumn colors of the leaves on the overhanging trees filter down light from above, which, when combined with the reds, oranges, and yellows of the fallen leaves around the falls, frames the water in a remarkably colorful, warm glow.
