Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot:
Up today: Ben Barlous, 17, of Denmark, visiting for the summer.
Said Barlous: “Water is powerful. It will push you around. It feels like someone is trying to hold you underwater for 30 or 45 seconds.
“It looks pretty, but it’s Vermont so you can probably expect some manure runoff everywhere around here.
“I was out biking a little bit earlier. You need to just jump in the water and cool off.
“The cavern behind the falls is dark. It’s loud. You have to yell to hear each other.
“There’s quite a lot of space back there. It feels like added weight and pressure just trying to push you around. Actually, it’s fun.”
