Photography: Enduring Moments Outdoors

CS Sherin, July 17, 2019

We took a road trip to Decorah, IA about a week ago. We had never seen the 200 foot waterfall there, called Dunning Springs. The top of the waterfall starts from a small cave up towards the top of the bluff. The spring becomes a pretty impressive and relatively long and big waterfall. The naturally air conditioned air surrounding it was a bit of a heavenly welcome on a humid summer day.

My husband and our little dog weren’t able to climb all the way to the top of the trail along the waterfall, since it gets quite steep, slippery and hard to balance with a dog in tow. They let me go the extra five or so feet up, where I could see the origin of the spring that gushes, amazingly, into a vigorous and beautiful waterfall. This first photo is of three harmonious trees that stand right above and to the right of the waterfall, above where I stood.

That’s all for today. I hope you enjoyed this week’s summer photo fun!

Photography: Moments Become Memories

CS Sherin, July 10, 2019

The cool thing about photography is that it provides an enduring insight into fleeting moments. This is one of the reasons I love it. As someone who has always preferred being outdoors as much as possible (with some exceptions), nature photography allows me to stay present with it even when I am indoors a lot of the time. There are usually important memories and moments that are strengthened and better remembered with the photos. With summer now in full swing, this is the time for exploration with my camera.

Here are some of my favorites that are also recent.
