This past weekend, I finally had some time to get out and do some proper shooting. You know, where you get up early to catch the good light, you bring a tripod and really focus on the photography? I try to get out and shoot like this as often as I can, but given the hectic days, it can be hard to find several hours with which to really focus on shooting. Too often, I shoot in short 15-20 minute bursts when I get a chance, and this is often when the light is less than stellar.
Anyway, with my time, I headed down to Hocking Hills State Park in the southeast quadrant of Ohio. I got there just before dawn and was able to hike through the gorge and get a fair few decent photos. I brought my Fuji system along this time, shooting with my X-E1 with 14mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 and my Rokinon 8mm fisheye. Here are some of my best shots from the trip.

Great shots Jordan. I like your use of the 14mm. “Upper Falls” is my personal favorite.
Beautiful. Reminds me of the waterfalls I shot recently in Wales.
Jordan, great series. I have the same setup X-E1 and the 14.
Question what did you use for PP and are you going to upgrade to the X-E2
I am thinking about it because of 2 things, 14bit RAW and real time wysiwyg display.
I never liked the way that the X-E1 EVF would automatically adjust regardless of fStop shutter speed and more importantly using filters. I wounded if Fuji could fix this in FW for the X-E1 if so then I am on the fence about the X-E2, I don’t care about AF performance I 99% of the time use MF
Love your pictures!
