- 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. (BTW – At the time I did not know if it was on private property or not – I did not see any “No Trespassing” signs, but that has now changed. The owners have posted below and don’t want people visiting the site. Please respect their wishes and DO NOT attempt to visit this falls.)
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....
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!
