My usual trip over the August Long Weekend to Cleveland this year sadly did not happen. Because the gentleman who was running the event has been feeling a bit discouraged over the lack of interest in it. (I really should make a point to go out and shoot the area this fall). So instead I headed down to a different area of Ohio, Hocking Hills State Park.

I had been seeing a tonne of really great photographs from the park from good friend and amazing photographer Mat Marrash of late so I decided to take him up on the offer to show me around the park and when to get the good light. That was 6:30am. It wouldn’t be the first time I had stayed up late the night before getting up really early for photos…I mean it’s what we aim to capture.

The effort was well worth it, from the deep valley of Old Man’s Cave to the short walk to the stunning light at Ash Cave, the only thing was that with all the dry weather a lot of the water falls had turned into mere trickles, on the plus side I did get access to cross some of the creek beds to get the angles I wanted.

Yup, I certainly will be going back here soon! Probably in the winter next!
