So, you want to improve your photography, do you? Well, I say all you need to do is just act more like a goose! Think I’ve completely lost my mind? Well, I haven’t (at least not yet!).
Don’t believe me? Just hear me out on this one!Read More
If you look at my Instagram feed, Facebook Page or anywhere else that I tend to post my photos, you’ll know that here lately I’ve had a small obsession with waterfalls. There’s just something about a cascade of water that is awe-inspiring and that leaves me no choice but to photograph it. Oh, and my home state of Kentucky just so happens to be full of wonderful waterfalls! I figured I’d take some time to show off some of my more recent waterfall shots, and maybe tell some of the stories behind them.Read More
This past Friday I drove down to Laurel County, Kentucky, to explore part of the Daniel Boone National Forest with my buddy @MCochis. The primary goal of this trip was to check out a spot that Mike had identified as being a possible waterfall. Spoiler alert, we did indeed find the waterfall. I’ll have images of said waterfall to share later.
Before venturing off to find this possible waterfall we hit up a few arches. Amongst these were the Daylight Arches. This set of twin arches are quite a sight to behold!
When I saw just how close these arches were to the Forest Service road, I expected them to be absolutely trashed. That is, after all, just the sad reality of this stuff being easy to get to. To my delight, however, they were in pretty good shape. The trash and graffiti, while present, was not nearly as bad as I had expected.
Many of the other arches I’ve been to that are close to the road end up with nearly every square inch covered in graffiti and trash mounds abound. Luckily, these seem to be a pretty good shape. Pictured here is the Daylight West Arch.
Tell most people that you are planning on embarking on a wintertime adventure and you’re likely to get the same response: “There’s something wrong with you”. Most people just don’t get it. I, myself, understand it. In fact, I actually love adventuring during the winter and you should too.
Not convinced? Well, here are my top 3 reasons why I love adventuring in winter.
We’ve been in the midst of a deep freeze here in the Bluegrass state, and that has meant that the waterfalls across Kentucky have been freezing. Copperas Falls in the Red River Gorge portion of the Daniel Boone National Forest was certainly no exception! For weeks I had been seeing hints online that the falls off Copperas Creek had frozen to the point of being a solid pillar of ice. Some were even suggesting that it’s the most the falls have frozen in several years. This was just too good of an opportunity to pass up! I messaged @Brian2774 on Instagram and we made plans to head out to the falls shortly after daybreak on Saturday morning.
This was sure to be an epic trip!Read More
