Spearfish Falls - 3

On the last day there I decided to get up before dawn and head down to Spearfish Canyon to capture Spearfish Falls. After spending a long summer of Northern Kentucky heat and humidity it was below freezing when I began my short trek to the falls, a very welcome change. I really wasn't sure what I was in store as many of the snapshots I saw seemed to paint a dull picture of boring surroundings, but to my surprise it was more than I could have ever dreamed as the falls drops about 40 ft into the passing Spearfish Creek, truly a gem of the Black Hills National Forest. I spent a while here, not just photographing the falls but just standing and watching the water rush by. There is truly something peaceful and relaxing when it's just you and a beautiful waterfall.
