a place to showcase

A walk to remember

After a few minutes of contemplation by the falls it was time we continued along our way. Climbing back up to the main trail felt like quite the accomplishment as my legs protested going against gravity.

Amu and Huz were now keen to get to the end, whereas I would have been happy to dawdle my way slowly back, one step at a time. It was a long walk, and saying we were tired out would have been the understatement of the year.

I do think we left a piece of our souls there, or perhaps the place seeped into our souls. It seemed we had already experienced the highlight of our trip on day 2….and nothing henceforth could beat this.

(All pictures have been taken using Huz’s phone camera as I was too tired to mess around with the Nikon. I think the results aren’t half bad!)

    • Thanks Fats….I had you in mind while cross-processing 🙂 I prefer not to edit them too much, but on a whim I played around with that pic of me. Loved the yellowy glow that resulted and decided to do them all! I think it was time I had some fun with the fog 🙂

  3. You know you’ve done well when you can’t tell if you’re taking it with you or leaving yourself there. Lovely place, truly. I think the 4th photo is my favorite. The encroaching grasses and wet trail seem to be a big part of the story here.

    • I’m delighted to know the 4th is your favourite….it’s like you read my mind about it capturing the essence of that hike 🙂

    • Thank you! I really can’t stop looking at them again and again. Haven’t painted in so long, the idea of a blank sheet of paper frightens me 😦
