Path to Paradise

Here’s another Autumn picture from Alum Creek, Ohio in our collection.  I love how the lighting in this one can help the viewer create a dramatic story, like how maybe the long path is finally opening up to a Fall paradise for the weary traveler.

And, today we are going back to Hocking Hills and staying overnight!  So, we hope to do a lot of photography in the area provided it doesn’t rain.

Prints are available here,

Alum Creek Landscape

The Fall season this year has been a bit lackluster.  In my area the trees are just now getting nice color, but a lot of leaves are also brown, and many of the leaves have already fallen.  It’s a shame.  But, two years ago the Autumn show was stunning.  This image was taken at Alum Creek, Ohio, and as you can see the colors are vibrant and most of the trees still have all their leaves.  The blue sky bringing out the orange leaves, and the beautiful orange water reflections make this one of my absolute favorite Autumn scenes.

For the next week I plan to share more of my favorite fall landscapes so stay tuned!

Prints available here, for those interested.

Video: Photography Trip Hocking Hills

Here’s a short video featuring a few clips and some of our favorite photographs from our Hocking Hills trip.  Feel free to check it out.

We also hope to go back on Monday provided we have nice weather.  This week has been rain, rain and more rain.  We are hoping that next week the leaves will be at their peek colors for the fall season in that area.  Provided we have the stamina, we plan to check out Old Man’s Cave, Cedar Falls and Conkle’s Hollow.

Waterfalls near the Devil’s Bathtub

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite photographs from our trip to Hocking Hills last week, and I wanted to start with the waterfall images.  First, we had a great trip and successful photography day, although we didn’t spend nearly as much time as I wanted to.  To recap we had gone to Old Man’s Cave, one of the more popular hiking areas in the Hocking Hills State Park.  We had originally intended to check out the Devil’s Bathtub (a bowl shaped basin that forms a whirlpool) along the Old Man’s Cave trail, but we stopped our hiking right before we walked over the bridge to view it. However, I believe these waterfall images are part of the Devil’s Bathtub.  If he had gone just a little closer (walked over the bridge) we could have seen the basin and whirlpool, but we didn’t realize we were that close.  Thankfully we plan to go back next week to get more Fall landscapes, so we’ll try again.

Regardless of not seeing the full feature of the Devil’s Bathtub, I still am very happy we got these photographs as they turned out to be my favorite from the day.  I love the curves of the cliffs and the water reflection.  They create such a beautiful design in nature.  The first was taken by me, and the last two are by my husband.

These images have been added as available fine art prints at our site, along with our Hocking Hills photography collection here.

Countryside Church

On our drive home from Hocking Hills yesterday I spotted this church in the country surrounded by a cornfield and trees, and I couldn’t resist the photograph.  I really love the atmosphere of the image.  Sometimes my favorite photographs are ones that weren’t planned.

Forest Landscape

I’m going to Hocking Hills Ohio for a little photograph day!  It’s such a beautiful place with forests, cliffs, waterfalls.  Today we’ll be checking out a place called Devil’s Bathtub located on the Old Man’s Cave hiking trail.  It should be interesting.  And, mostly it will feel so good to get outdoors during the Fall season.  I’ve been sick, and the weather has been more like summer.  We barely have Autumn leaves yet.  But, hopefully for the next couple of weeks I’ll be able to get some Fall landscape pictures.

This picture is forest landscape that is part of the hiking trail at Old Man’s Cave.

It’s that time of year when people start to think of ideas for Christmas gifts.  A pet portrait is a great idea for a unique gift, and now is the time to get in your order so I have plenty of time to finish it for Christmas.  Contact me for information, if you are interested!
