Early Fall in Ohio

Every fall I like to go do some landscape shooting around Ohio.  We don’t have big mountains, or many sweeping vistas, or an ocean shore.  There’s Lake Erie, but the sun doesn’t rise or set over it.  However, one thing we do have in Ohio is waterfalls and naturally carved gorges, and these make for …

Finding Time to Shoot (and write!)

If you’ve been a regular visitor to Admiring Light, you’ve probably noticed (and perhaps even been frustrated by) the lack of new articles over the past few months.  I apologize for that.  I’ve been absolutely swamped at my full-time job and have had less time than I’ve ever had for shooting and writing.

A Visit to Florida

So, I’ve been visiting family in Florida for the past few days, and while the primary purpose of the trip wasn’t photography, I had a bit of time to shoot. I decided to bring my Fuji kit on this trip, and it performed well, as expected.  I thought I’d share a few photos from the …
