Blendon Woods Metro Park opens at 6:30 AM. In mid October in Ohio the sun rises at about 7:30 AM. How can you enjoy photographing fall colors before the dawn? Bring a camera, a tripod and a 2,000,000 candle power flashlight.
Stepped outside yesterday evening and saw some very unusual undulating clouds. I grabbed my camera bag and tripod and rushed over to Blendon Woods Metro Park. The Goldenrod Trail meadow is full of chin-high wild flowers and has an open view to the south west where the clouds were heading. Time to time lapse. Read MoreGoldenrod Meadow Clouds
Went back to Inniswood Metro Gardens yesterday morning with no plan other than wander around and photograph whatever grabs my attention. It worked out pretty well.

I took my first trip to Inniswood Metro Gardens in Westerville, Ohio recently. In an effort to balance taking photos with enjoying the moment, I only took one camera and one lens, an old Rokkor 50mm f/1.4, expecting to get photos of flowers and insects. The fantastic gardens had so much more to offer.
