Something I haven’t done a whole lot of is exploring and photographing abandoned buildings, an activity often referred to as urban exploring or urbex. It’s a subject that has always interested me, I just haven’t had much chance to practice it myself. As such, I jumped on board when I was invited to go explore an abandoned high school with some friends.
I’ve been meaning to write about this trip I took on New Years Day for awhile now. Nearly three months into the year isn’t too late, is it?
Anyway, I got 2019 started off right by going to check out two spots in Kentucky’s Red River Gorge that looked curious on LiDAR. In fact, they looked an awful lot like waterfalls!
The result was two newly documented waterfalls. It doesn’t appear that anyone has been to them in quite some time, so it’s likely that we are the first people to photograph them (at least with a digital camera)!Read More
If you haven’t noticed yet, I have a minor obsession with visiting and photographing waterfalls. To be honest, it could probably be classified as a sickness at this point! As such, I recently went to scout out some of the off-trail waterfalls in Kentucky’s Mammoth Cave National Park.
What follows is an overview of that trip and a log of my experiences.Read More
Kentucky is just packed full of natural arches. In fact, it’s ranked either second or third in the United States for most number of natural arches. We are behind only Utah and possibly Arizona. East of the Mississippi, however, we are ranked number one!
That means that there are hundreds (if not thousands) of natural arches to be seen in the state! Many of these are off designated trails and seldom visited. It’s up to the intrepid explorer to put in the time, energy and research to find these hidden treasures. In this spirit of exploration, I’m not going to spoil the locations of these arches here. I’ll leave that up to you 😉
So, without further ado, here are my five favorite natural arches in Kentucky that I’ve found so far!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
