One of my favorite things to do is to is bum around and take photographs for personal solace. How often do I do this? Ohhh… about next to NEVER. Sad, I know. It’s something I need to work harder at scheduling into my me time a little more often. Recently a friend of mine and I decided to go check out Minnehaha Falls for the afternoon. Now, I’ve been there before. I’ve taken photos there before. But oddly enough it was only in the winter and yes, it was for a client. Unfortunately, this day turned out to be a dreary one. Luckily the rich green tones from the trees really came through but the sky was… blah.
The falls are a site of beauty and mystery combined with sounds of calmness and tranquility. I could have sat by them for hours and never gotten bored. I think it would be fun to visit this area again in the fall time and capture the colors of the leaves with the sun shinning through. Here are a few photos from the day. Nothing too mind blowing but I did manage to capture a moment of that tranquility with the eye of my lens. Just close your eyes and imagine the sounds of the water rushing over the falls. Ahh… my happy place!
