The landscape within the landscape. Carved sandstone and fall leaves. #hockinghills #naturephotography
This section of the stream above Upper Falls, at the beginning of the trail to Old Man’s Cave in Hocking Hills, reminds me of a similar section deep within The Narrows in Zion National Park, Utah. Of course there the stone is entirely different texture and color but there’s still the elegant curve and appealing contrast of flowing water and rock.
I’ve posted this image before but I’ve enjoyed revisiting it and enhancing somewhat for more emphasis down the center of the frame. We walk across scenes such as this like fleeting shadows across a canvas that is a work in progress. Drop by drop, year by year, the master carves, shapes and crafts. He enjoys revisiting his work as well.
