Madison Indiana Photography

Winter night over the Ohio River

Here is another image of the new bridge over the Ohio River at Madison Indiana. This time I created this shot during a snowstorm at 3 am, best time to get out with no people in the way.  All kinds of elements were going in this shot, light,snow and reflections in the river and I think I brought them together for a pretty good image.

The bridge is just one of the many great subjects you can photograph here. Historic Architecture to beautiful natural settings, they all surround the Madison Indiana area making it one of the best spots in Indiana for photography.

Hope you enjoy the image and thanks for stopping by and taking a look.

Trees in the Mist

Thought I would share more from that wonderful morning where the light just wouldn’t quit and I was able to create numerous images of that awesome experience. Being outdoors in search of photographic opportunities is always a good thing but when you combine it with fantastic light and it becomes really special.

This one was taken when the fog had still not quite began to burn off and what little light was getting thru added a surreal touch to the trees that I was using as my subject.  I actually came away with what I was looking for in that moment and thru the years I have found that is a hard thing to do.

I hope you enjoy the image and hopefully you can find a morning like this one and be able to experience that special light that doesn’t come around very often. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my work.

Luna Moth | Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Wildflowers aren’t they only thing I get to photograph, here is an example of a wonderful Luna Moth that I came across on a recent trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I found this wonderful subject laying on a boulder getting ready to take flight, and for what seemed like an eternity this beautiful flying flower stayed in this one position and let me capture some really incredible images of it !!

I was really blessed to find such a beautiful and majestic creature, most specimens of moths that I come across seemed to be severely battered, but this beauty was in all it’s glory and I was so thankful for such an experience. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, hope you enjoy the image !!

Wildflowers of the Great Smoky Mountains

Here are a few more images from a recent trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This time I thought I might share a few shots from the Cucumber Gap Trail “love the name” a trail which begins just above the Elkmont campground and makes a wonderful 5 mile loop that travels up thru a lovely hardwood forest and then loops back along a rushing boulder strewn river.

The trail is covered in beautiful wildflowers and here are an example of three that I really liked, Painted Trillium,Foam Flower and Beaked Violet. These are just a few of the indelible number of wildflowers that grow in the Smoky Mountains.  I just wish I had the time to share all of them, I hope you enjoy these and if you ever get to the park in the spring definitely make Cucumber Gap Trail a must for any hike you take !!

Fall Leaves

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 !
