OK, technically I think this falls is unnamed, but I didn’t want to call it “Falls Without A Name” or something dorky like that. This is located above Upper Falls in Hocking Hills State Park and I think it’s actually just as pretty.

This particular area of cascades really attracted me – I loved the play of the drops and green foliage. Getting there wasn’t too bad – just climbing down a few slick rocks and ledges. Although, standing on the slippery rock you can’t help but worry about taking a bad step and riding over Lower Falls (roaring just behind me in this shot).

Most of the time there isn’t that much water going over this, but it had just rained so we had the privilege of seeing it nice and full. I remember how excitedly I snapped away at this scene – couldn’t get the images fast enough and each shot seemed better than the last. I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I enjoyed shooting it :)


About Our Prints....

I currently sell individual prints only. Each image is custom printed in house by me on our commercial grade inkjet printer. Each print is individually inspected and carefully packaged for shipment.

Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.

(Note - we are no longer offering framed prints. The potential for damage in transit was very high and the shipping for large framed prints was outrageous, sometimes costing over $100 for larger pieces. Additionally, we've found our clients seem happier when they can work with their own local framing shop.)


Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.


All prints have a signature in the corner, usually the lower right hand when possible.


Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.


We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.

Thanks for your interest!
