My problem is that I tend to picture an idea and envision it a certain way in my mind and then get discouraged when I know the pictures aren't going to come out the way I want them to. :\ Do any of you ever feel that way? I need to find some pretty and secluded places to take photos. So many of you all take such amazing photos with beautiful scenery. I lust after big open fields, abandoned barns, railroad tracks and the like. I need a tripod and to not feel awkward if people see me posing and taking pictures of myself. This is why the word 'secluded' is important.
So a couple of weeks ago, my cousin Ashley told me we should go on a picnic at a waterfall that is near her house. I am always up for a picnic in a scenic location, so of course I agreed! For some reason I imagined the waterfall being small and along a stream somewhere, so I was surprised and excited to find this:
It's apparently part of a state park. I never even knew it was there! I like that it's like a secret. Where we parked, it was just a small parking lot on the side of the road with a grassy field in front of the woods. Then you head into the woods and there is a set of stairs that go down and it opens up to a river with this magnificent waterfall! There is also a walkway that overlooks the waterfall. I was so excited that I must've took about 80 pictures of just the waterfall. haha.
We climbed the rocks near the waterfall and took some pictures, then sat down on a bench and ate peanut butter sandwiches on cinnamon bread (my second favorite sandwich next to grilled cheese).
