Scenic Adair Co., KY: Trompe l'oeil falls of Bull Run

2017-03-25 - Bull Run Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, .
Looking dead center into the photo, do you see a falls? Continue looking; do you see a pool, or "hole"? At first glance many see the reflection of tree iimbs as flowing water, as a 30" falls. Some don't. I saw it first as a falls, then as it actually is. Slowly scrolling the screen can make the illusion happen more quickly. Either way, it's a fine sight on one of America's most scenic byways. - EW
