If Forrest Gump was right about one thing in life, it's that you'll never know what you're gonna get. Every place I plan out to go on a weekend I always do whatever everyone else does, Google it. I try and search for places within a reasonable distance. It's not my job as a photographer to travel, I don't get paid to take shots of outdoors, it comes from an inside passion.
As a Christian and believer of Jesus, I know that God created this entire world and I want to be able to see as much of it as I can while capturing moments I can share and remember. Cloudland Canyon is about a 40 minute drive from where I live in Chattanooga. Some friends of mine who share the same outdoors love joined me. While there were lots of trails I wanted to see the waterfalls of course. An easy laid out path for hiking down 600 stairs. I realized halfway down that I had to walk back up. It was a great calves workout.
Check out some of the shots from the evening.
