Hi Guys! This week we are doing Sammy (and Teddy)'s Poetry! When we first looked at this picture, it reminded our Mom of canoeing on the Little Red River when she was a teenager.
Then they stopped on the brink
Looking down made their stomachs sink
Of the tallest water fall
And the worst feeling of all
How to remove themselves from the top
Without that immediate stop
That crashing to the bottom would bring
Thinking of how much it would sting
Then another went kayaking by
And they let out a terrific sigh
Perhaps their imaginations went wild
The Fall was really a stream that was mild
But what a story the tale they told
Something to remember when they were old
The above is an actual photo called Kayak waterfall, adrenaline rush at Victoria Falls, Zambia, Africa. The photographer wrote, “To capture this feat, multiple camera angles were needed. For the film crew (and myself) to avoid aviation authorities and fly below the 1,500-foot minimum flight limit, the paddlers had to set off across the crocodile- and hippo-infested waters above the falls before sunrise. The paddlers approached the edge of the mile-wide, 350-foot-high falls to scout the rapids below. This moment was captured from a helicopter circling 500 feet above the falls, battling with mist and wind blowing up from the narrow canyon. Challenges included extreme air turbulence and constantly having to wipe water from the spray off of the lens. I had initially planned to shoot wide at 15 mm, but a last-second in-air lens change in these conditions rewarded me with this shot.” Photo #13 by DesrÃ© Pickers
We are thankful that the river behind the house has melted!
