2012 Photography Challenge – Waterfalls

Waterfall/Suzys Artsy Craftsy Sitcom #photography

Our challenge this week was to take a photo of a waterfall.  This photograph was taken at DeSoto State Park in Alabama.  And the young man sitting on the falls just happens to be my nephew.  He apparently has no fear of heights.  I, on the other hand do.  So, I stayed on safe ground and just took photos.

DeSoto Park as lots of great hiking trails and picnic areas, and really isn’t a bad drive from my side of Atlanta.  It is a favorite day trip, and my family has lots of great memories there.

So how did you do?

Email your ‘waterfall’ submissions to me!  Check out the Submission Guidelines.  I will post your photos here along with any information that you would like to include.  If you have a website, feel free to add a link to your site!  I will be taking ‘waterfall’ submissions all week!  Feel free to send your original photo!

Our theme for next week is “Photo Editing”.  See the information at the bottom of the post for details!

This weeks Submissions:

Tiny waterfalls going over the dam in the river at War Eagle, Arkansas. This was the best I could do for this challenge.
We are rather short on any kind of water in Western Oklahoma at the moment.  The second photo is from my sister Cinda Freitas when she was in New Zealand. Now that is a waterfall. ~Brenda Williams- Weatherford, OK- Cats, Kids and Crafts

I fell in love with Multnomah Falls when on a vacation with my parents years ago. Recently I was trying to teach myself to use the My Digital Studio scrapbook program and chose photos from that trip for my first project because it has such great memories for me.  You can read my story at peaceloveandjoyce.blogspot.com ~ Joyce

I live in California. I took this photo while I was in Utah.  It is Bridal Falls in Utah along the Provo River. ~Carolyn

This picture was made at Bald River Falls off of the Cherohala Skyway near Tellico Plains Tennessee. This is a beautiful place that is accessible without a hike off of Forest Service Road 210. ~Jean- Alabama
