This is a shot from earlier this spring from one of my favorite spots in Southern Indiana, Happy Valley a beautiful gorge that sits right below Hanover College, just outside Madison Indiana. This has to be one of the most picturesque spots in the Midwest, from just east of Madison all the way down to just above the Louisville Metro area, the hills and gorges that lead into the Ohio River are covered in massive hardwood forests.
When moisture is abundant, there are many seasonal waterfalls that cascade off the steep cliffs that line the valley, I was hoping to do an in depth shoot of the area but with the lack of rain and the early season freeze I don’t think conditions are going cooperate with me this fall. Still this is a place of incredible beauty, and many who visit are surprised by the rugged nature of this part of the state , and find it hard to believe that they are still in Indiana.
I don’t think I am going to take any fall photo trips this year, I think I am going to hang around here and hopefully get a few shots when and if the conditions present themselves to me. This year the early spring was wonderful and I was able to capture a bunch of great images in a few short days, maybe I will get lucky and it will happen again this year.
