Same photo, different orientation. Both are uncropped. The portrait orientation captures the power of the scene and the landscape orientation captures its serenity. Both photos capture lines and forms. The landscape orientation captures more texture, especially with the morning mist. At least this is my thinking. Anybody have a thought to share?

Conkles Hollow Landscape

My best landscape I posted Wednesday from Ash Cave.

Mostly I’ve taken more intimate landscapes or nature close up. I did take this photo from the Rim Trail at Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve (Ohio) last week. I snapped it on a whim, its not really in its peak of beauty. I’ve included the reward for walking the forest floor trail into the hollow, the intimate landscape of the inner falls.

For this weeks WPC Challenge.

Identified

 

Thanks to a tip from Eliza Waters that this might be a sedge, I have found it to be so. Carex Communis, almost as memorable as its common name, Fibrous Root Sedge. It us found in eastern North America in sandy loamy soil and rock outcroppings. A perfect match. Thanks to all who dropped on to take a look at my nature trail curiosities.

Scrunched on the Nature preserve trail with my camera steadied on my pack to get a good shot, I made an amused sight. My memory recalls never seeing this wildflower before, i needed a good shot. Since… identification fails me.

Can anyone help me out? What is this wildflower growing on the floor of the Conkle’s Hollow State Nature Preserve, Hocking Hills State Park Ohio?

Enjoyed some time away this week. No schedule, no TV, no internet, no cares, little phone service…just down time.
