Cool refreshing waters flow
traversing land formed long ago
A thunderous sound roaring wild and free
nothing can contain its jamboree
As it rushes over the steep rock wall
I attempt to capture a waterfall

My sister snapped the above photo of me as I was attempting to ‘capture’ the Upper Gooseberry Falls during a trip up to Lake Superior for my birthday last month. I didn’t realize that she was including me in her photograph, I thought she was standing beside me taking a picture of the falls too, but it’s cool to see the perspective she captured with me off to the side like that.
Here’s what my perspective looked like. Although I can’t really tell from the photo above which way I was holding my camera at the time, I know it was one of these two shots that I was taking, because the people are in the same positions as the one my sister took…
Speaking of people – there were tons of people all over the place while we were there, so it was hard to get a photo without people in it. They were especially noticeable when I zoomed in…
I also had a hard time getting a shot of the Middle Falls without there being people in it…
But I mostly had a hard time taking this one because I had to climb over to a very precarious spot on the edge of the cliff to capture it at this angle – and I was in flip flops, which are not exactly the safest shoes for rock climbing. 😉
Here is a shot I snapped of the middle falls once we ‘climbed’ down below…
Finally one without any people.
Well, except for this strange lady who was creeping behind me…
My seester ❤
Who was once again taking pictures of me taking pictures. But this time I was taking one of her too. She’s not the only one who can be sneaky!
Gooseberry Falls State Park is a beautiful place and I had a wonderful time there capturing waterfalls with my sister.
Hope you capture something beautiful today…
