Paddys River Falls, Tumbarumba
Celebration: countdown 30

Paddys River Falls is near the sub-alpine town of Tumbarumba.
I never really feel I have understood a waterfall until I have been directly under it, and can feel the air pressure changing around me and the vibrations in the ground. This is an exception. I don't think i will understand this place. The walls of the fall are fluted into impossible shapes that come alive as evening falls.
Still, I remember this as a great place to swim when young, and lovely at the base of the waterfalls. I guess that these days, with this one, I would be a little more wary of what might be coming over the top. There is a second unseen danger here: the race continues on and turns a bend down a natural drain hole. In a strong current a small whirlpool forms above it.
This waterfall is tucked away, on the desolate and lonely road that was cut to the hydro power stations and Kiandra. Only bush folk come here, it is too far from the cities. My dad used to bring me here, on our way to cross country skiing. It was a long road trip, and snow closed roads at the top of the mountains did not help. This place was a nice tonic.
I love the way the cliff face here has been gradually cut away but am mystified by the stone figures that are left. When you live in a little town for a long time, there are a couple of views that start to define the place for you, even if no-one else. While I always enjoy a photo, it never quite puts me in the place. Familiar but not home. Actually driving through the streets and looking to that hill or over at that house or the place where my horse bolted years ago is a different matter

Image: I have reprocessed the original long exposure toning for depth to draw a little more detail from the image.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ call to kick libel law back to the states is baffling and dangerous. In an era where the president of the United States routinely attacks the press, our landmark libel case, New York Times v. Sullivan, must remain a cornerstone of First Amendment law.

Thomas seems to be supporting President Donald Trump’s call to “open up” libel laws to make it easier to successfully sue media companies.

Bribes, bribes, and more bribes.
Want to get rich in Congress? Just endorse the death of the planet. Big Oil will pay you handsomely, and who cares if the human race goes extinct in 100 years. You sure got yours now, bribe-junkie.

NYT: Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer and fixer {gave} federal prosecutors in Manhattan {new info} about possible irregularities within president’s business and about a donor to the inaugural committee, according to people familiar with the matter.
https://nyti.ms/2GEXqNG

Quick takes: SDNY prosecutors are looking well beyond hush money payouts and their potential violation of federal election laws. While the Mueller investigation MAY be wrapping up, others including SDNY R ramping up, and scope includes shady operation of the Trump family business
