Ethereal Beauty

In Hocking Hills you can actually sense the land as a living, breathing organism. No two spring seasons are ever exactly alike. The photographic artist notices the smallest of details that sets each apart from the other. The flow of water. The way the morning light is carried on the cool breezes that arise from the sandstone recesses. The towering, dark forms of the giant hemlocks. Maple, beech and elm with branches aglow with the luminescence of new growth.

This was the morning of May 13, 2010. Dawn at Ash Cave.

To capture these images I used a Canon 5D Mark II with Canon lenses that included 70-200mm, 28-70mm  and 17-35mm. All are longer time exposures with camera set on a Bogen 3021 tripod and Kirk ballhead.
