Glade Creek Grist Mill

Having read about the many wonderful state parks in West Virginia, I decided to visit Babcock State Park to photograph fall color. I picked Babcock because of the Glade Creek Grist Mill which is one of those “must photograph” subjects every photographer visiting West Virginia should shoot. The mill is very photogenic at any time […]

Saint John’s Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery

While in the Hocking Hills area for the annual “Shoot The Hills” photography contest, several fellow photographers and I visited Saint John’s Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery, just outside Maxville, Ohio in Perry County. For its age, the gravestones and church are in amazingly good shape. Several of the residents in the area take care of the cemetery […]

View From Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park

    It’s hard to believe that it will have been 6 years this coming May since I visited Yosemite National Park. I enjoy going back through my older photos, especially my images of Yosemite so I think that makes it seem like it wasn’t that long ago. I find that looking at my older […]

Snow Rollers

  A strange and rare winter weather marvel appeared earlier this week called Snow Rollers. Snow Rollers are weird cylindrical snow formations that are formed naturally as chunks of snow are blown along the ground by wind. Once the “seed” of the snow roller is formed, it begins to roll, and pushed by the wind […]

Upper Falls In The Winter

    Upper Falls at the east end of Old Man’s Cave Gorge is a beautiful sight in the winter with snow covering the ground, but it’s a hard subject to photograph because the area around the base of the falls is very plain and doesn’t have any rocks or other objects to add interest […]

Grigg Dam In Fog

  You never know what photographic opportunity may come your way so you should always be prepared by having a camera with you. I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t always have my DSLR with me, but I always at least have my cell phone camera with me. The saying, “The best camera […]

October’s Hunter’s Moon

    Several photography friends and I went to Great Smoky Mountains National Park back in October to photograph fall color. Although we were there over the 3rd weekend of October which is typically when peak color occurs, the color this year was below average at best but we had a great time and did […]

Highbanks Bridge

    Highbanks Metro Park located just north of Columbus Ohio is appropriately named for its massive 100-foot high shale bluffs that tower over the Olentangy State Scenic River. Tributary streams cutting across the bluff have created a number of deep ravines exposing Ohio and Olentangy shales on the bluff face and sides of the […]

Some Fall Color

  As I mentioned last week, nice fall color with vibrant oranges and reds has been hard to find in central Ohio this fall. Some trees turned late and I found this beautiful Maple back lit by the sun along Lane Avenue not too far from Ohio State University’s campus. Enjoy it while it lasts. […]

In Search of Fall Color 2013

Nice fall color with vibrant oranges and reds have been hard to find in central Ohio this fall. Even in typically great places for fall color like Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the color just wasn’t there! Over the weekend of October 18-20, I traveled to Great Smoky Mountains National Park for fall color and […]
