My friend Amy requested I post some waterfalls that I shot over the Summer. Here is the story on how I got to these waterfalls.
Carrying a very heavy backpack that contained my camera equipment on my back, and with my tripod in its case slung over my shoulder, I waded through a slippery shade creek for at least a mile after sliding down a very steep decline in order to get to the creek itself. Balancing all this heavy equipment and walking through a shale creek is far from easy and believe me, it held my entire attention so that I would not fall. I walked what seemed an eternity.
To my horror towards the end of that trek I saw before me a pitch black small enclosure, long scary tunnel, so dark you couldn’t see your hand in front of you (note to self … bring a flashlight on future photo shoots). Screaming inside, terrified of rats, I forced myself to continue walking into this tunnel, stumbling as I went over debris that was in the creek that yes, I was still wading through. I had come this far and darn it if I was going to turn back! I almost went flying face first at one point as I tripped over a huge branch that I did not see, because I did not have a flashlight.
Seeing light at the end of the tunnel (smile) that is what I focused upon and when I came out into light once again, there they were … waterfalls! It took a while for my Heart to stop pounding and my stomach to threaten to empty itself of its contents. A post I just published recently spoke about fears. One of mine is closed in places. But I pushed through and yes I did find, not a rainbow at the end, but even better … waterfalls!!
Here you go, my friend! Do enjoy!!! What do you think? Were my efforts worth this image?
There is a lot more to Life
then what first meets the eye.
