Punchbowls are a rare formation for waterfalls and there are only a handful of them across the entire United States. We are lucky to have an awesome example here in New England at the top tier of Sabbaday Falls in the Southern tier of The White Mountains.

Making this picture took a lot of careful planning and execution to capture the falls on a summer afternoon with the right flow of water at the falls. It’s a picture that I am very proud of as it captures the energy and history of the location and makes me think of the thousands of years of water flow that have carved this formation into the sculpted granite rock that serves as the foundation for the beautiful spot.
