Tree Landscape at Dusk
Caesar Creek State Park, Waynesville, Ohio
"Nature is not a place to visit, it is home." - Gary Snyder
This was the last photo of my first trip to Caesar Creek. Taken just around dusk, I didn't really think much of it until it was printed and matted with a black matboard. The trees were purposefully silhouetted to accentuate their shape and form. All the other colors really add to the diversity such as the gentle blues of the sky and the yellow of the leaves. This is from a view onlooking the 3,741 acre lake.
There isn't a dramatic story really with this one. Sometimes however there doesn't need to be a reason. It is something more than a grab shot and prosaic but one I took off before it got too dark away from my vehicle. You see I was out hiking quite literally all day with some short breaks here and there. I managed to hike all the color coded trails within that day to my amaze. Only after returning home did I realize I had just hiked only the campgrounds trails. There was only one picture I took of the map to go off of and would make sense due to all the RV's camping out that I passedy by. Upon my discovery of a much much larger backpacking trail, you can imagine my blessed out feeling that I scratched the surface. So now Caesar Creek's backpacking trail is on my bucket list of places to hike.
