- 3rd Place Open Landscape 2011 National Center For Nature Photography Annual Photo Contest (against 556 total entries). It came in behind my other two shots, Blazing Sunset and Miner's Beach Starburst Sunset.
NOTE – I was recently told this area now has a “No Trespassing” sign posted. As such, I can not respond to any request for directions nor will I be personally visiting it again. Sorry.
OK, first off, no clue if that’s what the actual name of this falls is. In fact, I think it’s an unnamed falls, so we’re going with Corkscrew. Sound good? Cool
At any rate, I had heard about this falls when doing a little Hocking Hills internet research. Getting to it involves pulling off to the side of a little highway, jumping a guard rail and going down a hill. Next, you wade through a (slippery) creek for about 50 yards or so and are greeted with this little gem. Pretty cool if you ask me. (And yeah, I think it’s probably on private property, but there weren’t any “No Trespassing” signs, so…)
The pool you see in the photo is REALLY deep – you can only get so far before the real swimming starts. (Not that I’d recommend it – who knows what kind of currents may lurk below?)
As I was shooting, my 10 year old son Grant was behind me having a good time messing around in the shallow creek. Every shot or so I’d peek back and make sure he was OK.
At one point, juuuusssttt as I was turning to look back, I see him lose his footing and SPLASH! Right on his butt! At first I had that tinge of panic you get as a parent when something like that happens, but soon we were both laughing about it. I told him, “Hey, welcome to the club! If you don’t fall in every now and then, you ain’t doin’ it right!”
He was a good sport about the whole thing so I finished up my photos. Then, back up the hill and off to get some dry clothes.
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
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.
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 are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
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!
