The waterfall at Ottawa Canyon in Starved Rock State Park in Illinois. (USA)

It is places like this that draw me to photography. If I had to choose one type of photography from cityscape to still photography; from abstract to macro; it would landscape photography. Waterfalls are my favorite. If you told me that you would pay me to travel the world and shoot nothing but waterfalls, I would hop on a plane tomorrow.

So, if anybody knows someone who is willing to pay me to do that, please let me know.

I enjoy photography of all kinds. If it was how I supported my family financially, it would be a dream come true.

    Oooooh… wonderful!! :) :) :)

  • I love to see the emotion in your words. I think it’s the “Oooooh” that gave it away. Would love to try shooting some of those amazing falls in Tazmania someday. Maybe you can help me out and get some rich people to pay for the trip. LOL
