When Melanie and I took the three-hour long journey from my family's cabin in northern Pennsylvania up to Kaaterskill Falls in New York, I didn't expect to come back with much more than a photograph of the waterfall itself. I don't want to go into these new areas with high expectations, hoping to come home with plenty of new content that is print-worthy. Truth-be-told, this photograph itself I was unsure of for a long while. It wasn't until recently that I began to fall in love with it, deeming it worthy enough to be in my portfolio.

I pulled into the main parking lot only to find a multidude of tree stumps that littered the surrounding area. It appeared as though they were expanding the parking lot, given how the trees had been chopped down in a squared-off form. While Melanie gathered her things and put on her boots, I chose to explore a bit around these stumps. The forest that still stood intrigued me, the trees looking as though they would fit very well as a black and white photograph. I just had to figure out how to best compose my desired shot.

Although I tried my best to get the shot before walking down the trail and capturing the photographs of the falls - titled "Withstanding" and "Forest Views" - nothing seemed to line up as I wanted. None of the shots I took were what I wanted and I knew that from the moment I pressed the shutter.

It wasn't until coming back to the car after spending time getting soaking wet from the waterfall that I was able to see a composition. As I mentioned previously, this photograph still had not immediately grown on me and was one that I had considered trashing multiple times, thinking it would never workout. Yet here it is, officially released, as the print looks far too good to not hang on my own wall.
