Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Hocking Hills, Upper Falls, Old Man's Cave

A few weeks back, I went with two of my 'photo buddies' to discover a new location....a place we had never photographed.  An adventure, if you will.  The fun part was that it was going to be a long weekend and though it wasn't what one could call 'nearby' it also wasn't all that far away. At four hours by car it was not going to be an unreasonable idea to go back during another season if it ended up being a location we really liked.

And so off we went to Ohio's Hocking Hills, a conglomeration of five parks right next to each other.  It turned out to be a great trip and a beautiful area.  Needless to say, I will be showing several images from there in the coming weeks.

This particular photo was taken at the "Upper Falls" in the area of the park known as Old Man's Cave (yes, an old man did live here for many years under a large rock outcropping reminiscent of a cave).

I was able to frame several compositions at this location, but my favorites were this one and another that shows the stone bridge over the falls.  I am still working on that one.

Oh, and I think that we will be going back to this area at some point!!
