Fallingwater Spring

I needed to take a break from all the decrepitude of the asylum so thought I'd post this classic view from a recent visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater" in the woods of western Pennsylvania. One of the most architecturally famous houses in America, it was built in the 1930's over the objections of several engineers who said the boulders and waterfall would render the foundation unstable. I was fortunate during my visit to have mostly cloudy skies (not to mention several rainstorms) so I could do a somewhat long exposure, but the high humidty took a little of the crispness out of the air (and my image). Still, I thought the textures here would be a welcome relief for those of you tired of seeing peeling paint in my photostream.
