The Swimming Hole

Yesterday, I was invited to go on an adventure with a good friend and her family. We would be hiking in the area around DeCew Falls, and were hoping to see caves and the incredible gorge, in addition to the falls themselves.

For the first time in a very long time I decided to bring my camera. I’m not sure why, but I also felt compelled to grab my wide angle lens as I was walking out the door – in fact I am pretty sure I had to go back in the house to get it.

I usually just rely on the crappy iPhone 6S camera. It does the job, but there is no real ability to be creative. I know there are a multitude of apps, made for manipulating these so-so images, but they usually don’t help make a subpar image spectacular.

We did see the Lower DeCew Falls up close and personal, but not before the kids took a swing and dunk in the fabulous swimming hole that lies at the bottom of the pathway down the escarpment. The lighting was to die for when we got there around noon hour, and created a lagoon like feel to the area.

This is exactly the way it felt being there.
