Artist's Description

Upper Falls in Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio, United States, enters a sandstone basin under a graceful stone arched bridge, creating a scenic location just up-river from the famous “old man’s cave.”

The sandstone cliffs in this area include a unique variety called “Black Hand” sandstone which is softer than the surrounding material, creating several caverns and “hollows” in this area of Southeastern Appalachian Ohio. This photograph was taken in the early Spring before most trees regained their leaves, allowing more sunlight into the basin than usual, making for a dramatic contrast between light and shadow. The Hocking river was flowing at a moderate rate at this time.

Photographed in March 2016 on vintage Kodak PXP 120 roll film using a 1961 Graflex Century Graphic folding bellows camera with a Xenar 105mm f/3.5 lens. The negative is a 6×9 cm format. 125ASA, f/5.6, 1/15s, shifted up by 2cm. Digitized using 9 exposures on a Canon 5D MK II; 100Megapixel image resulting.
