CT: Middlesex County-Middletown-Wadsworth Falls State Park

Waterfalls and rainbows! That’s what I found on this recent winter day at Wadsworth Falls State Park.

From the lot I could hear and see the rushing of the water over the falls more dramatically than I think I have ever seen yet here. I assumed it was due to the weather now thawing the ice and snow. I tried to rush down to see the falls only to be reminded of the steep stairs. Anxious to get to the bottom I ran back to my car to get the micro spikes.

The sun was directly behind me at an angle that created a colorful half rainbow in front of me at the base of the rushing water.

As the water hit the bottom it created a rush of water and wind that impact the degree of colors. I did my best to capture it in the photos and then tried a bit of a video.

In the summer I stood at the rocks right beside the falls. Today it was a solid layer of snow and ice. With my micro spikes I got as close as I could as it was magical to sit there and watch the rainbow and watch the power of the water.

I went for the long view and decided not to tread the water I had for the direct shot I got in the summer 🙂 it came close!

A tough work week came to a close with balance. A great ending. An awesome memory that becomes my focus as I drift off to sleep at night.
