East Falls Of The Black River
Black River
Cascade Park
Elyria
Ohio

One of the coolest waterfalls I have been to in Ohio is the East Falls Of The Black River! Located in the city of Elyria couldn’t believe what was in store when myself and good friends Jeff Burcher Photography and Bryan Janosick stopped for visit. An old dam, a 25 ft tall waterfall, a rainbow and some 100 year old abandoned ruins? Yes, please! The overlooks here are great but the real treat is to follow the trail down to the ruins and the base of the falls. As we walked the trail the amount of cinder, rust and broken glass really caught my eye. Years ago, as a teenager I enjoyed doing amateur archaeology. The city I grew up in and street I grew up on were loaded with old 19th and early 20th century dump sites and in some cases 19th century ruins. What really grabbed my attention were some pieces of plate glass. In all the years I’ve been waterfalling I had never seen old plate glass along a trail. Upon closer inspection I found several old bottle tops. I picked a couple up and dated them to the late 1800’s. Really cool! If I were a betting man I would lay money down that over 100 years ago nearby homes would simply dump their trash over the cliffs to the Black River below. Once we arrived at the ruins, with the water up we had to climb through a large opening in the foundation. Man, it was so cool! I’ve never seen anything like it! In one place close to the falls, a massive chunk of concrete dangled by a few steel bars. Above, a large opening was a doorway to the blue sky above. Stretching from the falls a half rainbow danced in the mist, but you know what? Just goes to show you that you don’t know everything. I didn’t realize my circular polarizer would actually hide the rainbow so because of that you can’t see it in this photo. It doesn’t really matter, the whole scene was mind blowing and I’m glad I came away with some shots of this experience that I really like!

Lower Falls
Old Man's Cave
Hocking Hills State Park
Ohio

When myself and good friend Adam Thompson - The Serialphotog visited Old Man's Cave in Ohio's Hocking Hills State Park the Lower Falls was kicking and so was the light! It really is one of Ohio's most beautiful falls and honestly I could just shoot it for hours!

West Milton Cascades
West Milton
Ohio

Over the years a waterfall that I never tire of shooting is the beautiful West Milton Cascades north of Dayton, Ohio! Time and time again I walk away with photographs of this waterfall that I really like. A couple weeks ago when I was joined by my good friend Michael McHenry we were in for a treat! The falls was flowing perfectly and we couldn't have asked for better light!

Hidden Falls
Hocking Hills State Park
Ohio

Located in Central Ohio, myself and good friend Adam Thompson met up with good friend Jeff Burcher for a day of exploration. While waiting for Jeff, who was waiting for us in a different lot, Adam and I headed down to Cedar Falls thinking Jeff would see my car and join us. After shooting the main falls and meeting this nice fella running a workshop who offered any assistance if we needed it, Adam and I headed over to Hidden Falls. I immediately noticed we had a sunburst opportunity over the falls. This was the first time I had ever attempted to shoot a sunburst and a waterfall. The real challenge here is making the darks and the lights work together to make a tonally appealing image. I am mostly satisfied with this this version of the photo, but there is something about the waterfall itself I wish I could nail down. Definitely a learning experience and one that I do not think I am finished with. I have a feeling another version of this photo will make an appearance later in the year when I have some time to work with it again, but for now I thought I would share the beautiful scene Adam and I got to enjoy while sadly Jeff waited for us in another lot. A short time later we would find each other travelling between the different lots we were parked in. Hocking Hills needs cell service!

Roebling Suspension Bridge
Ohio River
Skystar Wheel
Covington Kentucky arcross the river
Cincinnati, Ohio before the river
From the Carew Tower Observation Deck

Earlier this year I finally took the time to take some shots of the Skywheel on the Cincinnati Riverfront! This was the first time I had attempted to shoot it and I was hoping to combine it with a favorite pastime, photographing sunset. I have been wanting to return to the Carew Tower Observation Deck to shoot sunset for years. Well, sunset bombed out. Undeterred by a stiff southerly wind thought I'd try my hand out at the Skywheel. I expected it to be a challenge to photograph, and it was. I tried several different settings to see what effects I would get out of the ferris wheel. Though most of my shots were failures I did have one I really liked come out. I just love the pattern of the light and the Roebling Suspension Bridge close by.
