Clifty Falls is one of the most beautiful sites in Indiana, the falls sit atop the Clifty Canyon gorge that runs south into the Ohio River. Big Clifty is sixty feet and there are three other falls that top sixty feet as well. There are many other cascades and rivulets that grace the park making it an amazing place to visit after a hard rain.
The spring brings out an incredible display of wildflowers followed by fall colors that paint the canyon walls and hillsides with such a broad brush of color that many people leave the park with a sense amazement.
Try visiting Clifty Falls one weekend it’s a wonderful place for hiking and has a great campground. Madison Indiana is just a couple miles away and is a wonderful place to stay and visit as well.
I have been capturing images of wildflowers for nearly a month now and had all but given up on posting any winter images for this past winter season. But low and behold here we are on April 20 and we are expecting a dusting of light snow overnight and freezing temperatures. Spring in Indiana lol !!
So now I have the opportunity share some images from this past February when we were having a pretty tough stretch of winter. I captured these as we were getting a heavy snow one evening here in Madison Indiana. A fresh snow at night is so beautiful and it makes everything it covers so magical and serene !!
Tonight’s snow should be nothing like that and I can get back to the business of photographing wildflowers here in Southern Indiana fairly quickly
I captured this along the Ohio River this past fall. Usually sunrise images contain quite a bit of color but this one seemed to scream for a black and white conversion and I was happy to oblige.
The Ohio River has always seemed to present me with many wonderful compositions over the years and this one didn’t disappoint. The hours I have spent walking the riverfront looking for just that right image has always been a favorite past time of mine and hopefully it will be something I can continue for a long time.
There are so many moods that the river displays and no two sunrises are the same, if you happen to be in Madison Indiana you certainly couldn’t do better than taking a sunrise walk along the river and enjoy one the rivers beautiful moods !!
