Fall Cascade

A serene scene from Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana. Warm fall light helps to create a very peaceful mood in this image I captured at the park. There are many much larger and more photogenic falls here but this one always brings me back for a visit because of its solitude and peacefulness it exudes.

The Road Thru Clifty

Another shot from Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana. I captured this image on a early fall day walking the road that traverses the east side of Clifty Canyon Reserve located inside the park.

Wasn’t the best shot I ever got but it was one of those images that remind you of a special day that you will long remember !!

Stairway to Heaven

Another beautiful fall scene from Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana. Even though it was a warm dry fall I was still able to capture a few nice images this year.

Little Clifty Bridge

I was hiking at Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana when I came across this beautiful scene. I caught the sun as it slid beneath the rugged hillside that surrounds Little Clifty Falls and the bridge that spans it. Timing is such a major player in photography and once again I ended up at the right place at the right time !!

Fall at Clifty Falls State Park

Here is an example of the color we are starting to experience here in Southern Indiana at Clifty falls State Park located near Madison Indiana.

It started out warm and dry here but the last few days have cooled dramatically and we have received much needed rain to help spur on the color that we had been lacking.

So starting now thru the next ten days the color will really be beautiful here and it should be a great destination for viewing the wonderful fall colors that blanket the hillsides and gorges that grace this part of Indiana.

Chain Mill Falls

Here is another example of one of the many waterfalls that grace Jefferson County Indiana. Chain Mill Falls is located near Hanover just outside of Madison.

Sitting at the back of a beautiful gorge that leads into the Ohio River this falls was used to power a grist mill over a hundred years ago and was also a tourist stop for riverboat travelers along the Ohio River.

The tourists were carted up the steep gorge to view the falls by a ski lift type system that I believe was also powered by the falls.

When the waterfall is at high flow there are not many more beautiful sites to view in Indiana !!

Wildflowers

This slideshow is an example of just a few of the many wildflowers that I captured this year here in Jefferson County Indiana. They were all photographed in Clifty Falls State Park earlier this spring.

Some of the best wildflower displays I have ever witnessed came from our own backyard and if giving a chance you should get out and experience the wonderful natural diversity that this area has to offer.

Clifty Falls State Park, Splinter Ridge FWA and Big Oaks NWR are just a few places to go and view the beautiful display of wildflowers that inhabit our home.
