I was fortunate enough recently to visit the Red River Gorge with my very good buddy Patrick. We spent 3 full days hiking and photographing in the area about an hour from Lexington Kentucky. We managed to find a bit of late fall color still hanging around, and of course the topography is quite wonderful. So I decided that instead of posting a single image as I normally do, I would just throw out a bunch of stuff I shot and worked up (not really print ready, but good enough for web viewing!). Hope you enjoy…and trust me when I say the detail in these is simply not going to come through at this size/resolution.
A lovely first morning in the Gorge – Chimney Rock Overlook
Fall leaves, in case that isn’t obvious!!
Looking towards Raven Rock from Auxier Ridge. At least Patrick claims that is Raven Rock in the right center, but his information is a little sketchy at times….
A lovely spot along the Red River….
We had a lot of bright sun on the trip…had to find ways to use it to our advantage!
And again….I kinda got on a kick of looking for and finding various leaf arrangements to shoot. Considering converting this to black and white – we’ll see.
The final morning I was actually shooting by myself as Patrick had to leave the day before. Unfortunately he missed the best sunrise of the long weekend. Then again it’s just as well – I was running back and forth between two cameras (very rare for me to do that) and I probably would have had to push him off the ledge I was on so I could manage them both. He would not have been happy with that!
