A Good Field Trip

                                                            AUTUMN GLORY

                                              A BONE SHAKER

Just back  from leading a weekend field trip to Hocking Hills in Ohio.
The weather cooperated giving us mild temperatures with  just enough
overcast to cut the brightness range and still allow the autumn colors to pop.
The participants had an enjoyable time and
learned a lot if you judge by their images.

If you are a person who always wanted to take a class in photography,
always wanted to learn to capture and process great images,
or just wants to learn more about how to use your camera.

The Face Of Heaven


Yesterday began as a good day.  A light overcast gave wonderful diffuse light. High 80’s with the forecast of some rain later on in the day.  The remnants of the storm Isaac, that just went through the southern states was not supposed to hit before late evening, we were safe. The image making could begin. This was 9:00am.
It had really clouded over by 1:00pm.  
By 2:00pm the heavens had opened and we were trying to remember how to build an ark large enough to fit the car (lol).  The storm lasted most of the afternoon while we took cover in a nearby restaurant and watched through the floor to ceiling windows.  A spectacular sight, the rain whipping the landscape, and us in a nice dry place with food and beverages. The only way to weather a storm. 
After lunch and as the storm abated we ventured outside once again and found this face in the now reddish sky.  The Face Of Heaven ??

The Chapel On Ridge Road


Over the years this small church has provided  many great images
to visual artists.  Both photographers and painters have been regularly seen
creating images of this local landmark.  For a long time it was an active
church but more recently has fallen upon hard times.
It is still beautiful in all of its faded glory and will continue to provide
images for at least a few more years.   It is really sad to see it go.
