You can’t step in the same river twice

It has lodged in my mind since.

This is a waterfall on the Fife coast.  It emerges from limestone – the remains of a prehistoric seabed – and creates interesting encrustations as it splashes towards the shore.

The rocks are cushioned with great, soft, spongey looking mosses. The cool air is an ancient, chlorophyll-green haze.

Every so often a Scotrail train rattles past to bring us back to the present.
