Title: Shamineau Falls, Crafts
I worked at this camp this past summer and had a chance to go back and work for a weekend in October, in which I took the pictures. While there, I had some incredible opportunities to shoot these early fall pictures. I wasn't expecting them to be so gorgeous, and when I saw them on my camera...I was blown away by the beauty of the place I called home for the summer. My two main pictures in this series are the ones with the road and the squirrel. I like these two because the road, to me, symbolizes something so average that I saw everyday, yet when seen in the right setting-fall-it is gorgeous. The picture of the squirrel was just amusing to me and was awesome how I was able to capture it before it moved. The other two pictures have incredible light shining on them that enhances their fall colors and that's why I like them and put them into the series. Nature has always fascinated me and so these pictures represent a place dear to my heart (Shamineau) and something that I love.
