Spirit of Miners Falls | Close Up

There are many small critters who live in the streams around waterfalls. This rock being protects them at Miners Falls.  As a symbol of his protection, a collection of the small beings, such as frogs, are sculpted into his rock head. Miners Falls is located on the Western edge of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan.

More Information


Miners Falls is located at the end of a scenic dirt trail through very tall trees filtering golden light on the warm summer day I visited.

At trail end, the National Park Service has built a steep set of stairs that ends at a viewing platform. From there you can look across to a spectacular 40 foot drop of water over the falls. (below) And our friend the rock spirit, on guard throughout the centuries.

About the Photographer

Atala Dorothy Toy is an award-winning photographer who focuses on portrait studies of sentient nature. Whether this is a magnolia expressing itself by bringing forth an exquisite blossom – or a wood elf marking his territory – Atala’s photos pulsate with universal life force energy.

Raised and educated in the Quaker faith, Atala considers herself part of the long lineage of Quaker Mystics who see all creation as varied expressions of one Unity. As an interdimensional communicator, she is accomplished in moving between different realms of beings, each filled with its own form of sentient life.

With a personal library of tens of thousands of her own nature spirit photographs, Atala is now working on comprehensively cataloguing the various type of beings who regularly use trees and rocks as their personal canvases. The material on this website is part of her work.  Atala has authored three definitive books on this topic – available, signed by her, on this website. We are Not Alone: A Guidebook to Interdimensional Cooperation explores the soft science of interdimensional cooperation. Nature Spirits, Spirit Guides and Ghosts: How to Talk With and Photograph Beings of Other Realms offers insight into the complex realms that co-exist with us on earth. Truths the Nature Beings Have Shown Me is a collection of over 120 of her photographs of nature spirits.

When you find a nature spirit image that inspires you, we suggest you purchase a print of the image and place it at a location in your home or office where it will inspire you. The 5×7 cards are suitable for a small frame. There are many images that don’t have an official page; if one of them is of interest, we would be happy to provide it to you by special order – same price as all others. Just contact us for details via the comments box at the bottom.

You can keep in touch with Atala in several ways. These include subscribing to her occasional Nature Spirits Newsletter and your own personal favorite type of social media – Instagram, Pinterest and/or Facebook. If you have some favorite nature spirit photographs of your own – please share them with our private Facebook group Nature Spirits Around the World.
