Sometimes I try too hard. The day after I took this photo I spent hours stumbling through Devils Club, yellow jacket nests and all of the best character-building goodness the Gifford has to offer - all for naught. My end goal of Rush Creek Falls ended in some scars, cursing and a mildly twisted ankle... and of course: no photo, despite days of research and planning.
The art of taking a photo can be insanely complex. From scouting locations, predicting the perfect light / season / time of day / water flow / tides and then composing the shot. Truly, it can be a daunting task. However, all of these elements are keenly enjoyable and come naturally to me. The digital processing and computer work that goes into polishing the final product is not my passion or my strength.
That same weekend as my botched Rush adventure I took my parents to this not-so-obscure waterfall and I decided to take my camera along just in case. The light was absolutely perfect, travel was a breeze and everything just came together nicely. So I couldn’t resist taking this quick little snap. It all came together nicely and I decided to share it as it came straight out of the camera, simple and uncomplicated.
Maybe I’ll process it someday but for now I’ll leave it just as it as it is. Happy #waterfallwednesday •CONNECT•CREATE•INSPIRE
