Minnehaha Falls

Minnehaha Falls.
There are two Minnehaha Falls that I am aware of, surely there are more, but I know of and have visited two. One is in Minnesota and the other in Rabun County. Since I live in Georgia, I tend to visit the one in Rabun County more often. Minnehaha was the lover of Hiawatha immortalized in Longfellow’s poem. It is also a Dakota word meaning “waterfall” or “rapid water”. Since the Minnehaha Falls in Georgia more closely resembles a cascade where the water travels rapidly, we will go with the rapid water translation. I have been photographing the falls since I was a young adult and love going there each chance I get. It is peaceful and relaxing. I prefer it with about the water flow it has at this time, because with too much more and it becomes a little more “powerful” and loses that relaxing feel. I love photographing it most during spring and fall. The colors around the falls add to the scene so much more as well.
