Last week, I came upon a waterfall that is remotely located in southwest Ohio. The falls are somewhat pointedly named “Fallsville Falls,” after the now non-existent town of Fallsville, that I’m sure was originally named after the waterfall, so there’s some circular naming going on. It’s really in the middle of nowhere, and no signs mark the path to the falls, but I had discovered a few references to the falls and decided to check them out. When I first passed by, I didn’t have my tripod ready to go, so I had to rely on a few handheld test type shot, but the trip served as good scouting.
This past Saturday, I got up very early and made my way down to the falls, arriving just after dawn. After hiking down the gorge, I took about two hours for photos, exploring several vantage points, but preferring to be a little ways down the gorge from the main falls, where the twisting and minor falls made for some nice compositions. Overall, I was very pleased with the images I got from this little trip, and I’m sure I’ll head back from time to time to further explore this location. I’d imagine the falls and the gorge will be rather beautiful in the autumn when the leaves change, so I’ll be able to get photos of Fallsville Falls in the Fall.

Wonderful photos of a beautiful location. I have the X-E1 and really enjoy using it. I am a long time Nikon user but find myself using the X-E1 for more and more personal photography. Is it worth updating to the X-T1 or are the differences not worth the investment?
which ND filter did you use?
Very nice images! Beautiful location! What main city is it near?
Used to fish at the quarry there with a friend back in the 70s. One day we were exploring the creek just above the falls. It was narrow there and shallow. In the middle of the creek there was a hole in the flat rock bottom about three feet in diameter. I took my fishing pole and stuck it in the hole and could not touch bottom. A few years later I went back and could not find the hole.
