On a balmy autumn afternoon, Adam Paris, a fellow photographer, and I set out to explore the captivating heart of Kentucky's famed Bluegrass region. As we traversed the undulating hills and picturesque vistas of Fayette, Woodford, and Jessamine Counties, we were constantly enchanted by the lush green horse pastures and the region's unmistakable Southern charm. Each bend in the road introduced us to a new visual delight, showcasing the enduring beauty and idealistic allure of this rural paradise.

On my recent journey through the scenic Hocking Hills region in southeast Ohio, I paused to photograph a sight that has become a cultural landmark: a Bicentennial Barn, standing proudly along the roadsides across the state. These barns serve as a poignant tribute to Ohio’s history and rich agricultural legacy.

Dolly Sods

On an autumn journey to Dolly Sods, I was joined by two fellow photographers, Jason Furda and Daniel Thompson, each of us eager to capture the essence of this untouched wilderness. Located in the heart of the Monongahela National Forest, the Dolly Sods is a vast landscape that stretches across the Allegheny Mountains of eastern West Virginia. Its unique position atop the highest elevation plateau east of the Mississippi River offers panoramic views that seem painted by nature's finest brushstrokes.

Autumn came late to the Cumberland Mountains along the border of Kentucky and Virginia. There was not a better way to spend it than by traversing the backroads along Cumberland and Pine Mountains and visiting Pine Mountain State Resort Park, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, Kingdom Come State Park, and the Little Shepherd Trail.
