Diary from Pittsburgh – Point of View Park

We had some amazing sunrise and sunset during July 4th Weekend. I must say after such a long time I have seen such a great sunrise. I reach the Point of View Park which is on the edge of Mt. Washington (Grandview Avenue at Sweetbriar Street) one hour prior to sunrise. I also use my GoPro to capture the sunrise on timelapse. All these images are digitally blended from multi-exposure images. I used Canon EOS 6D body, Canon EF 16-35mm 2.8L lens and Cokin Graduated Neutral Density Filter to capture these images.

Diary from Ohiopyle – Baughman Rock Overlook

One of the most famous place for hikers, bikers and surfers in South West Pennsylvania is OhioPyle. It’s the Summer paradise. I always love going to ohiopyle, doesn’t matter whether it summer or frozen winter. It’s about 90 minutes drive from Pittsburgh. I started at 4:30 AM from Pittsburgh so that I could be at Baughman Rock Overlook before sunrise. Baughman Rock overlook is situated just outside of Ohiopyle on Sugarloaf Road. This scenic overlook provides a stunning view of the Youghiogheny River Gorge above Ohiopyle. It was nice to see some photographers from Greensburg, PA in the early morning on this isolated place. For few moments, I thought coming up early here is going to be in vein because of overcast. The fellow photographers from Greenburgh they left early thinking that the sun show up. But I decided to wait for few minutes, I know Sun will definitely show up behind the clouds. So the bottom line is “You need a patience”.

Diary from Hocking Hills, OH

I was planning to make a trip to Hocking Hill’s since long time. There is so much that makes Hocking Hills State Park unique. Cascading waterfalls, breathtaking cliffs, deep recess caves and forestland as far as the eye can see are just a few distinctive features of the region. There are six major hiking areas in Hocking Hills State Park – Ash Cave, Old Man’s Cave, Rock House, Conkle’s Hollow, Cedar Falls and Cantwell Cliffs. I started my hiking from Old Man’s cave. Old Man’s Cave is a grand display of nature’s beauty with its covering of Eastern Hemlocks, sheer cliffs and waterfalls. As there was less rains so the amount of water was less on the creek. The Upper falls is pretty close to the parking place. Before I start my hiking I stopped for a while on the guided map area and try to figure out the trail map. As I reached pretty early in the morning I could barely see anyone out there. But as I keep walking I started seeing people in the trail. Here are some of the images that I captured during my trip to Old man’s cave in Hocking Hills state park. Upper Falls, Old Man’s Cave
