Last Autumn I took a trip with my parents to Hocking Hills State Park and came across what is now one of my favorite waterfall areas that I've ever encountered. I had seen images of this beauty with its turquoise water, but I knew that with us visiting during October that there was a chance of capturing the essence of the place with some colorful foliage as well. Ultimately, I fell in love with the vibrant leaves pictured here in the foreground. 🍂 I'll never forget the look on my dad's face when he saw just how close my camera got to the water while taking images (it was literally almost touching the water). A mixture of fear and surprise, followed by a wide smile and shaking of his head. Sweet memories with loved ones at Old Mans Cave, on the gorge trail and spending time at the rustic cabin in the woods.
Witnessing close family loss over these past few months has served as a harsh reminder that our time here is very limited. Life is short, fragile and can be gone in the blink of an eye. I plan on living it the best way I know how...with genuine love and passion.❤️ #naturalohio #hockinghills #exploreohio #autumnleaves #hockinghillsstatepark #waterfall
