Chasing Waterfalls

Did you know... that Hamilton has proclaimed itself the City of Waterfalls? We have an escarpment that runs through our city giving us an actual uptown and downtown (we so fancy...) and thus, also giving us a multitude of waterfalls.
So, when my friend's husband Paul, a photographer at Photo280 found out about our waterfall situation, he asked if I could do some posing for him by a waterfall because there were some shots he wanted to try. Don't get me wrong, I'm not camera shy but all these waterfalls get really popular when the leaves start to change colour and I just pictured things being pretty awkward... I could just imagine lovely families coming by for an autumn hike and wondering about the poor faux model sitting in the cold stream. Hopefully they would think to throw me snacks...
Thankfully, everything turned out really well because it poured that morning and though it cleared up by the time we arrived to take pictures, the rain delayed the crowds and allowed for waterfall frolicking in complete peace.

And let's be honest, the waterfall sitting was my idea. I figured when you have a willing and talented photographer and some solitude by one of your favourite falls, you might as well commit. Something about YOLO...

Thanks Paul!!!


p.s dress is old Zara... also worn amongst autumn splendour here way back.

what a cool photo shoot! These pictures are gorgeous. I'm glad the crowd weren't there yet, it could get kind of awkward!

Thank you so much for the chance to work out some great shots! These photos were a blast to shoot!

Thanks for your kind words and your enthusiasm... even if that means sitting in a stream in a silk dress.
