The Milky Way

"Leisure is a form of silence, not noiselessness. It is the silence of contemplation such as occurs when we let our minds rest on a rosebud, a child at play, a Divine mystery, or a waterfall."
Fulton J. Sheen

I was astounded at the milkiness of this waterfall that we visited in Mexico on the day following our visit to the Sumidero. Mexico, it seemed like, had many an untold, hidden gems that were luckily not publicized as much, maintaining their sanctity as well limited reach.

I believe that in this picture, if not for the green waters at the bottom of the frame, it could very well be mistaken for milk falling down those slopes. Or feather or cotton stuck on a surface.
