With our busy lives and constant hassle, it’s important to sometimes pause and look around. Without realizing, most of the moments you want
to enjoy pass as you are too busy with other distractions.
When finding this eye catching waterfall which is over 225 feet tall on a hidden path with gleaming sunlight, countless logs, and different
shapes and sizes of rocks, I was struck with intensity by realizing that it is these beautiful moments in life that can pass by quickly just like the water which swiftly flows down the stream. This realization made me appreciate the power of photographic technology and how through both the lens in my eyes and my camera, I can capture the moments that I want to hold onto endlessly.
After a long wait, I was ecstatic to go into the Canyon and explore what it had to offer. When I walked into it, it felt like I walked through a portal and stepped into a new world. The shapes my eyes had ever seen or imagined appeared in front of me with different colors and textures. As the sun shifted throughout the day, different hidden shapes could be seen and different colors were intensified whether it be this canyon’s reds, yellows, oranges, pinks, or purples, the colors were extraordinary. One of the tour guides had told me that it takes an imagination and an open mind to explore this canyon because it speaks to people and reveals itself as long as you listen. I was intrigued and as I looked at the canyon with this new perspective, a hidden bear formed in front of me, molded between the canyons rocks.
Autumn colors and the beauty of this magnificent fall bring joy to the heart. When you stand in front of this charming waterfall you marvel at the beauty and magnitude of it. The sounds of it bring a calm and freshness to your body, soul and mind like on other sounds of nature can. The bridge between the mighty rocks gaive an exclusive characteristic to this tall waterfall. The vibrant colors of autums and the outpouring sounds of the fall makes one peaceful and hopeful. There is no other place you want to be when you stand in front of this outstanding waterfall.
Bodies of water can separate two different worlds. We can see this by how oceans separate seven continents and on each continent, different types of people with differences in culture, styles, foods, and traditions exist. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how this Earth occupies seven billion people and how we are separated through land and water.
When taking this photograph, this phenomenon hit me. This lake which runs under the Golden Gate Bridge separates two different worlds. One is suburban and the other is a city with busy lives and tall skyscrapers.
The land is just a few miles away from one another, yet the atmosphere is completely different.
