Last week, I published the video from our road trip. Did you see it? I’m super happy with the way that it turned out. If you haven’t already, click here to watch.

The most surprising comments and questions that I got was in response to the waterfalls in the very beginning of the video. It was surprising to me because it seemed like not a lot of people knew about it. To be honest, I didn’t know about either until I started researching the for the cross country road trip. There was tons of information about it on tripadvisor.com. I’m so glad we stopped here. It was the perfect rest stop for lunch and to stretch out our legs a bit from the drive.

So this waterfall is calling Falling Springs. It’s 80ft tall, so it’s pretty massive. My favorite part about it is that you can walk behind the waterfall and get some cool perspectives. We didn’t do it this time because I was afraid to get wet and then have to sit in the car all the way to Nashville, TN in wet clothes. I’ll be more prepared next time I visit. Second favorite part was the area above the waterfall. As you could see in the video, the water was super blue. Almost like we were in Puerto Rico or something but super surprising since we were only in Virginia. Next time I visit, you better believe I’ll be the first person on that rope swing!

I also go a few questions about trespassing. Apparently, people aren’t allowed to go near the waterfall and you could actually get tickets for jumping the gate. I did see a sign for trespassing while we were there, but it was kinda hidden behind branches and leaves. But the funny part was that the sign was right near the entrance to the waterfall and it was wide open. We didn’t really think much of it and just went right on through. There were plenty of other people enjoying the water too, so I don’t know…

If you plan on visiting, I’m sure you’d love it. But if you get in trouble for it, you don’t know me 🙂

Winter is definietly my least favorite season. It’s just so unbearably cold sometimes that I feel like it’s a race just to get back into the car or inside the house just to feel comfortable again. Most of the time when I’m out shooting I have at least 2 pairs of pants on and countless layers on top.

With that said, I feel like this image perfectly represents winter for me. Like the branches are going towards the Jefferson Memorial saying “I’m gonna getcha.”

So all that rain from the other day really caused a big flood at the Tidal Basin yesterday. It was kinda crazy to see exactly how much water there actually was.

I took so many images those 24 hours. Im trying my best to get through them all. Expect a vlog soon 🙂

I just love how the fog simplifies everything. If I were to take this same image on a clear day, you would of seen buildings, the Potomac River, and who knows what else. The fog cleared everything else out and left a beautiful backdrop to highlight these beautiful willow tree branches. Seriously, in love.
