Photographer's comments:
     Cumberland Falls, in the southeast part of the state, is one of Kentucky's best-known natural attractions.  On the day this picture was shot, Kentucky was in the middle of an unusually long rainy period in June.  The volume of water going over the falls was at least four times normal, and the river below the falls was 15-20 feet higher than usual.
