The peak of the fall colors had to have been the last two days for Southeast Ohio. We (my two photography friends…very dear friends at that) were able to be right in the midst of some of the most spectacular wooded areas and witness that beauty first hand. Though I have driven by Hocking Hills State Park many times, this was my first time to really walk it’s trails and experience the awesome views.
Rose Lake was our first destination Saturday morning. Though the sun was up it had not reached over the hills yet and there was some cloud cover. The light was still perfect.
When the sun got high enough it was amazing to see how the light touched the tree tops and then worked it’s way quickly down the hill side.
The best part? None of us was in a hurry. We were all snapping away, taking our time, lost in our own thoughts, soaking it all in. From time to time we would share photography tips, which we have found is the best way to learn more about taking photos…get together with friends and be willing to share what you know.
There was so much to see. And I wish my words here could convey to you how peaceful it all was.
The car was pretty full of stuff as we headed out…including a precocious rabbit who snuck into my suitcase. But Farnsworth had to stay in the cabin while we were out and about, so he chose to pout in the window.
We shared a lovely little cabin that was within an easy driving distance to all that we wanted to see. Each place we went to had something different to offer. These images here are just a sampling of the beauty we beheld, and I’ll share more of that throughout this week.
