GUSHING LETORT FALLS By Cecelia Lyden

There are several views of the LeTort Falls that are picturesque, but I chose to sit close, so I could see  the different directions the water took, as it splashed over the rocks. The river is quite swollen.  Its water rushed to the edge, bounced over the rocks and then settled down as it began to flow to the Conodoguinet. Once I established my composition, and "sectioned off" the falls I moved my brush rapidily to try to convey the gushing movement of the falls.
