cause i threw you the obvious to see what occurs behind the eyes of a fallen angel, eyes of a tragedy
i was expecting some unpredictable weather when i went to visit angel falls, what with it being rainy season, but i was lulled into a false sense of security by the blue skies and sunshine that welcomed me in the national park. this good weather continued on the 4 hour boat ride up the carrao river as we headed into the savannah towards the big waterfall. it was only when we started the final ascent on foot that the clouds got organised, opened up, and proceeded to shower us for the next 6 hours. it was like we had walked through an invisible tripwire which activates wet weather upon arrival. this made the trail slippery, the view obscured and the photography very wet - not the conditions i was hoping for when i posted my previous golden waterfall photo. then again, angel falls changes significantly from dry season to wet season, and for obvious reasons the 800+ metre plunge is more impressive when the rain lends a helping hand. unfortunately it's not quite as easy to see this brightside when you're tired, hungry and soaked to the bone.
