About this location...
I must admit the first time a good friend of mine mentioned to me that I should go and take photos of a waterfall called Minnehaha Falls (pronounced as Minni Ha Ha falls) in NSW Blue Mountains, I through that she was having me on. It wasn't until she proved to me that there really is a location in the Blue Mountains called Minnehaha Falls by hoping onto the internet and typing it into good old Google that I was convinced it was not a set up. And lucky for me that she did tell me about this location as it is a really great hot spot and I am happy to be able to share it with you all.
The first thing that I should mention about photographing at this location is that while it will take you a little over 30 minutes to reach the main waterfall from the car park, there are stairs, rocks and shrubs to navigate in order to get there. Now I like to think that I am fairly fit but on the way back I was feeling a little puffed, especially if you are carrying various photography equipment. Therefore in saying that if you are not keen on walking or have small children then this hot spot may not be for you.
Now I was lucky in the fact that there had been some rainfall a day or two before I went to Minnehaha Falls but I have heard that if there has not been any rain for a while that there isn't as much run off from the waterfalls. Unfortunately I cannot confirm and/or deny this, it may just be worth keeping it in mind and going there after there has been a little rain for best results.
