Spent a cold morning hiking to Little Clifty Falls in the Clifty Falls Sate Park near Madison Indiana. Most of the leafs have fallen and we finally received some substantial rainfall the night before so there was good flow in the water.
This has not been one of the better fall seasons for color or water flow for the many waterfalls that we have here in Jefferson County. But there was still enough fall scenes to salvage this season and find I did still find some very beautiful scenes to capture.
Little Clifty falls resides in Clifty Falls Park, the park boasts many smaller falls and cascades along Clifty creek. There are five big falls located in the park with Little Clifty being the smallest of the five.
I was hoping to catch high water flow surrounded by colorful fall leafs but the dry fall put a halt to that. But the park is still beautiful and any day walking the canyons and trails here makes it worth the visit.
Hope you enjoy the pics and if you are looking for a great place to visit in Southern Indiana try spending a day in 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.
Here is the last of the images from Clifty Falls Sate Park that I was able to capture of fall this year. Once again I can’t state enough on how beautiful Clifty Falls State Park, located near Madison Indiana is, if you only get a chance to visit one Indiana Sate Park this coming year definitely make it Clifty Falls.
I captured these images along the road that travels above Clifty Canyon, just walking along the road is a wonderful hike in its self, the colors were beautiful and the scene down into the gorge makes for a lovely walk on a brisk fall afternoon.
If you are more adventurous you can hike down into the gorge but the only problem with that is you have to hike back up lol !! The best time to hike into the canyon is in the spring when the water and all the beautiful wildflowers are at their peak, there are not that many places in the Midwest that put on a wildflower show like Clifty does.
Hope you enjoy the photography and for best viewing click on the images, thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Here are a couple more macro shots I captured of leaves this fall at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison Indiana. Instead of large landscape images I tied isolating leaves just to capture the detail and patterns in the beautiful fall leaves.
When you look closely at the leaf, all the intricate lines and patterns begin to appear, the thicker veins in the stem also add a cool touch to the vivid colors in the subject. Even the little spots of deterioration add a neat aspect to the image, making for some great macro photography.
Fall leaves also make a great subject because you can pretty much put them where you want …not like the tree they fell from lol !!
So if your looking for something to shoot this fall and want something a bit different pull out that Macro lenn and find some beautiful leaves to shoot and add them to your portfolio !!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look !
Even though my photo business is booming and I haven’t had much time to shoot many images in nature I have been able to sneak away to Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana for some nature photography .
I spent most my time shooting Seniors at the park but when they went home I was able to pull out the wide angle or macro lens to get a few fall shots for my portfolio. I thought I might share a few macro leaf shots with you today, usually with leaf shots I go for the vivid look but with these I thought a b&w conversion might me interesting.
So here are couple of conversions, I shot these really early in the morning while there was still moisture on the leaf, I thought it added a cool touch to the monotone scene. i love the lines and tones in these as well, even in death nature can give you some really amazing scenes to capture.
Next time I will share some more colorful images with you, I hope you found these as interesting as I did and don’t forget to click on the image for best view, thanks for stopping by !!
