Cataract Falls, Cagles Mill Lake, Patricksburg photos

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

Sarah and I spent Sunday driving around rather aimlessly, exploring the countryside for good photo opportunities. I brought my new lens, although it didn’t end up getting a lot of use. Instead I spent most of the time doing infrared photography. Hopefully soon I’ll write a post about the equipment and techniques involved in making these images. For now, I’ll just post some photos.

Sarah drove, which is unusual as she is just learning to drive. Country roads afford a lot of opportunities to practice the mechanics of driving without a lot of complicated intersections, or traffic. This also freed me up to navigate. I opened our Indiana Atlas and Gazetteer to the area where we were and started looking for interesting things to check out. The first thing to catch my eye was the Cataract Falls Bridge. I didn’t know if the bridge was noteworthy, but waterfalls are rather unusual around here, so I thought we should check out Cataract Falls. As it turns out, Cataract Falls is the largest waterfall in the state of Indiana.

After visiting Cataract Falls, we took the long way to Patricksburg, a small town we’ve gone to before and liked. On the way, we stopped at Cagles Mill Lake.

We drove through Patricksburg but only stopped a couple of times on the outskirts of town.

    Love those infrared shots (the others are good, too, but those infrared shots are killer).
