"Live simple, love well, and take time to smell the flowers along the way."
- Mark Twain
We weren't to our final destination quite yet...but we found some little treasures.
The path was bordered by unplowed cornfields which made perfect flower beds for colorful weeds. I am certain the farmer didn't plan it, but it made us happy.
When all picture taking opportunities were exhausted, we continued on our way.
With no sign to guide us, we followed what we hoped was the path to what we were looking for.
We could tell we were going in the right direction when we heard it...softly at first, then louder and louder. The louder the better, because a loud one means it is a big one. (Although size doesn't always matter. :)
Then we saw it...
The waterfall was gorgeous.
The spring rain created quite a water flow. We couldn't believe how big it was, and that we have never visited it before being so close to home.
We admired its beauty and took a lot of photographs. It was an oops-we-skipped-lunch kind of day. :)
Sometimes I look at other people's photographs and think, "Oh, that is beautiful. If I could go there I could create beautiful photographs too." In that moment, I think I have to travel to a foreign country, or at the least leave my state, to find beauty. This little waterfall adventure reminded me to seek out beauty close to home, search the internet, plan daytrips, put a little effort into it. Because there is beauty at my doorstep (or very close)...I just have to open my eyes, and mind, to see it.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a beautiful day!
