Fall in Madison Indiana is a very special time. With all of the beautiful tree lined streets and wonderful architecture Madison is an amazing place to spend an autumn weekend
You can spend your time wandering thru all the local shops or take a hike thru Clifty Falls State Park, these and many other things to do await you on your visit to this lovely little River town.
There is also plenty of Music and Food to make your stay an enjoyable experience. A scenic drive along the Ohio River valley or thru the many country roads that surround Madison make for a wonderful nature filled viewing experience.
Whatever you are looking for in a weekend getaway Madison has it so make a trip before all the leaves are gone and if you miss fall wait till you see Christmas in Madison.
I made a recent two day trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, probably spent more time driving than actually capturing images, but anytime in the park is special. Fall was little shaky there this year patches of really beautiful color but just as many places that it was still dull and a bit dried out.
With conditions being what they were I decided to spend most of my time working in a couple areas. Tremont and the middle prong trail for cascades and then Oconaluftee for a chance at Elk.
The image above was just one of the many beautiful cascades that line the middle prong and rarely ever disappoint. I captured this one pretty early into my hike and followed up with a nice collection of smaller waterfalls.
At about the 2.5 mile point in the hike you come across Indian Flats Falls which is an amazing spot to stop and take in all the beauty of the Smokies. I will share more of that spot and the many other images I captured a little later but for now I thought I might share this wonderful spot just for starters.
If you ever make your way down to the Great Smoky Mountains, Tremont is a must place to visit and while you are there you have to make this great five mile round trip hike to view all the amazing water features along the way.
Fall is such a beautiful time of year, but here in Madison Indiana it is even more impressive because of all the trees that line the Ohio River Valley and the wonderful architecture that it has to offer.
One of our most amazing spots is the Broadway Fountain. Any time of the year this location is beautiful but in the fall it really comes alive with color. Nearly every visitor to our lovely city will stop and sit awhile and capture an image of this special location.
Madison is such a great place to visit and now is the time to come and enjoy a walk by the river or shop at all of the different shops that line Main street. And while you are here stop by the Fountain for a bit and take in all this gorgeous color in person.
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 !!
