This partial solar eclipse proved quite the blessing as the moon covered a small portion of the sun during sunrise over Ohio skies.  For me, departing into the darkness, I was saddened to discover a cloud-filled morning twilight...but I pressed onward.  Fortunately, at sunrise, the clouds thinned for ten minutes before one of the heaviest fogs of the year rolled through the Miami Valley.  In these few moments, and amid the still and damp air, I enjoyed this enchanting sunrise over an Ohio farm.

Slot Canyons of the Escalante https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/6/slot-canyons-of-the-escalante A photo journey of Dry Fork Slot Canyon, Peek-a-boo Gulch, and Spooky Gulch.

Utah offers visitors incredible views from vistas which extend for miles; however, the geomorphology of the state also holds incredible visual wonders for those willing to hike into canyons.  The views entail closer sightlines but exploring Utah’s Grand-Staircase Escalante National Monument slot canyons offer hikers a visual wonder to those willing to commit to an all-day hike of the Coyote Gulch area. Slot canyons involve deep and sheer rock walls which possess a depth-to-width ratio of about 10:1.

To access the slot canyons, one must endure the Hole-in-the-Rock trail.  For me, it was the harshest wash-board road that I’ve ever experienced.  It was so tough, I’m surprised I did not lose a dental filling.  The “road” runs southeast from Escalante, Utah and if your 4-wheel drive vehicle sustains the 26 miles of abuse, you’ll pass the Lower Dry Fork Trailhead. 

Hiking from the trailhead into the canyon gives visitors access to three remote slot canyons:  Dry Fork Slot Canyon, Peek-a-Boo Gulch, and Spooky Gulch.  Research also indicated this order also captured their increased level of difficulty, which is how I experienced the geologic features. 

 

Geology of the Slot Canyons

To understand the geology of these slot canyons, one needs to envision back 200 million years ago when the region was characterized as a large area of red sand dunes.  The occasional weather event sorted the iron-rich sand grains into layers of varying thickness and hardness.  Eventually, more rocks formed over these features until 80 million years ago, the western portion of the US experienced a geologic uplift forming the Colorado Plateau.  As the rock layers were pushed upwards, their surfaces formed cracks and fissures that became suspectable to erosion from flash floods exposing, exposing the former sands, now called the Navajo Sandstone.

 

Most of the carving occurs during torrential monsoons that pour water over the area.  Following a thunderstorm, even those miles away, the landscape consolidates and compresses the rainwater as the growing surge descends down through a series of elevation changes.  After all, the water is trying to be somewhere else.  Under these strong forces, even rock layers can be worn down by boulders and silt gushing through the narrow confines of slot canyons.  After these periodic erosion events, the subsequent concave cuts and serpentine sluices form complex channels.  Under the mid-day sun, these geologic features reveal intricate textures as the sunlight rakes across the contrasting and complexly shaped canyon walls. 

 

Dry Fork Slot Canyon

Regardless of which slot canyon serving as your destination, the two-mile path is the same where one walks along the canyon rim until eventually descending into the floor of the canyon.  The Dry Fork Narrows was deemed the easier of the group, so I proceeded westward along the bottom and entered a wide vertical walled canyon which eventually narrowed into the sandstone layer.  I enjoyed the Dry Fork Slot Canyon as the surface gap was wide, allowing the sunlight to pour across the sinuous erosional features and fanciful rock cuts.  I explored the mile-long slot canyon to its logical end and then retraced my steps eastward.

Dry Folk Slot Canyon No. 11Dry Folk Slot Canyon No. 11The Coyote Gulch lies in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument along Hole-in-the-Rock Road as water flows to the Escalante River. The subsequent erosion has cut three slot canyons in the dark red Navajo Sandstone: Dry Fork Gulch, Peekaboo Gulch and Spooky Gulch. This gallery presents a series of prints from these undulating and whimsical geologic features where the resulting flowing shapes play with light and shadows in interesting ways.

This gallery presents a series of prints from these undulating and whimsical geologic features where the resulting flowing shapes play with light and shadows in interesting ways. Literature on the next two slot canyons highlights they need to be explored in specific directions with hikers starting at the mouth of Peek-a-Boo and walking northward thru the canyon, upon exiting the top of the slot, proceed overland to the top of the Spooky Slot Canyon and proceed down thru its narrow cuts. 

 

Peek-a-Boo Gulch

Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon No. 2Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon No. 2Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon lies in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Peek-a-Boo Slot Canyon gains its beauty from erosion which cut into the dark red Navajo Sandstone. Although the trail becomes a tight squeeze, its shallower depth allows more light to enter the slot canyon where the random geologic features play with the light and shadows in fanciful ways.

I had read about two particular challenges pertaining to the Peek-a-Boo slot canyon.  First was its 15-foot climb into the feature.  The footholds and handholds were questionable, but enough that I could pull myself through.  Peek-a-Boo offered explorers a series of arches which felt more like orifices as one moved northward.  The now mid-day sun painted the canyon wall in amazing light where the raking sunlight revealed the intricacies of texture in the orange sandstone layers.  I’m not a small guy, but I was able to successfully pass through the narrow 11-inch squeeze once I rolled my camera bag off my shoulders.

Although the trail becomes a tight squeeze, its shallower depth allows more light to enter the slot canyon where the random geologic features play with the light and shadows in fanciful ways.

Spooky Gulch

Although I enjoyed all three slot canyons for various reasons, Spooky Gulch was the most colorful.  I sensed the canyon walls were deeper and the top of the slot was definitely narrower.  All combined, the light did not reach the canyon's bottom, which I’m sure plays into its name, Spooky Gulch or the Eerie Slot Canyon.

Spooky Slot Canyon No. 5Spooky Slot Canyon No. 5Spooky Slot Canyon lies in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Spooky Slot Canyon has a narrower opening and runs deeper into the Navajo Sandstone which reduces the light entering the canyon which produces interesting tones in the dark red sandstone. In addition to the darker lighting, this canyon presents hikers with an even tighter squeeze and uncertainty to those with claustrophobic tendencies, leading to its name, Spook Gulch.

The Spooky Slot Canyon already had my full attention as research highlighted that a large boulder midway down the gulch created a challenge where one is forced to slide under the rock wedge or scale the top of the obstacle and then in a controlled fall, slide downward by pressing again both sides of the canyon wall to slow one’s descent. 

 

The second challenge entailed its even narrower slot at only 10 inches wide.  In my first three attempts, I could not squeeze thru this obstacle.  I remember assessing that reaching the distant daylight top by climbing vertically was a feat beyond my skillset, as was climbing back over the rock wedge that I had just passed.  As the Navajo Sandstone pressed against my back and stomach, I needed to focus on my breathing as I began to realize the pickle I had worked myself into.  I remain grateful to the college students I had followed into the squeeze.  To fit through, I had passed my camera bag through the narrow gap and the gentlemen holding my bag suggested I squat in the slot.  Although attempting a squat when sandwiched flat seemed like an impossible task…much to my relief, it worked!

Piqua Ohio Memorials https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/5/piqua-ohio-memorials Piqua Ohio Honors William Hart Pitsenbarger, Domenic Salvatore Gentile, and William M. McCulloch

The Midwest displays patriotism through its many small towns.  One such example lies in Piqua Ohio where they honor several local heroes through its sculptures and plaques.
 

William Hart Pitsenbarger Memorial

Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger Memorial, Piqua OH No. 2Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger Memorial, Piqua OH No. 2Within Piqua’s Veterans’ Memorial Park resides this memorial dedicated to Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger. He served in the US Air Force as a pararescueman. He was killed in the Vietnam War aiding and defending a unit of soldiers pinned down by the enemy. Our nation awarded him the Medal of Honor and Piqua remembers him as one of theirs. Piqua’s Veterans’ Memorial Park No. 1Piqua’s Veterans’ Memorial Park No. 1In 1991, the Piqua Veterans’ Memorial Committed formed to create a memorial area for local citizens. The war memorial lies at Washington Avenue and State Route 66. features a black granite memorial, flag poles and a large plaza created from dedication bricks.

After 24 years in the US Air Force, I can’t think of an air force base that did not have a building named after William Hart Pitsenbarger.  His valor in saving and defending 60 men on Vietnam’s jungle floor earned him the Air Force Cross which was later upgraded to Medal of Honor.  The name William Pitsenbarger is synonymous with the ideals of putting others first which the Air Force immortalizes on the façade of buildings throughout the country.  What I didn’t know was he was also from the Miami Valley and called Piqua Ohio home. 

I learned this fact while passing through Piqua’s Veterans’ Memorial Park on a gorgeous spring day.  In 1991, Piqua’s Veterans Memorial Committee secured funding and prominent land at the intersection of Washington Avenue and State Route 66 and then placed an eight-foot-high black granite monument honoring its citizens who served our nation.  Amongst its dedication bricks lies a separate granite memorial and an Ohio Historical Marker both honoring William H. Pitsenbarger.  Both the memorial and marker share the story of his heroic actions while recognizing his Miami County roots.  On a subsequent trip to the memorial, I met a lady from the local garden club who was attending the flowerbeds surrounding this large memorial.  In our conversation, she shared that she knew William Pitsenbarger.  In fact, she grew up across the street from Billy.  After recalling her experiences, the lady inquired if I had seen the statue of Billy at Pitsenbarger Park and Sports Complex. 

Although a sports park honoring Pitsenbarger was created years before, in 2015 and after several years of fundraising, the Friends of the Piqua Parks installed a life-size, bronze sculpture of William Pitsenbarger at the park’s entrance.  Set atop a grey granite base, the statue captures the essence of his amicable and caring personality.  As Piqua’s vice mayor shared, many of our children pass through Pitsenbarger Park and Sports Complex but now, with the large statue, they can begin to better grasp the man he was.

Domenic Gentile Memorial

Dominic Salvatore "Don" Gentile was born in Piqua, Ohio in 1920.  As a child, Gentile was fascinated with flight and even learned to fly while still in high school.  As war emerged over Europe and lacking the required college education for the US Army Air Corps, Gentile joined the British Royal Air Force in 1941, serving in the famous 133 Eagle Squadron.  As the US ramped up its war effort, he was assigned to the 4th Fighter Group which eventually was equipped with P-51 Mustangs.  His talents and tenacity made him Army Air Force’s leading ace with 27 kills to his credit.  Given his reputation, General Eisenhower labeled Domenic Gentile a “One Man Air Force”.  In 1986, the City of Piqua dedicated this sculpture which resides on Veterans Way near North Main Street and East High Street.

William M. McCulloch Memorial

William McCulloch was born in Ohio in 1901 and early in his law and political career, settled in Piqua Ohio.  In addition to practicing law, he served as a state representative and eventually speaker of the house in Columbus.  As WWII broke out, he resigned as Ohio’s Speaker of the House and enlisted in the US Army at 40 years old.  After the war, he was elected to the US Congress where he was instrumental in shaping enduring legislation such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and the 1968 Fair Housing Act.  William McCulloch passed on 22 February 1980 and was interred at Arlington National Cemetery.  In July 1990, the City of Piqua renamed this square in his honor and in 2018 installed this sculpture in his honor

Fort Piqua displays Richardson Romanesque-style architecture with impressive stoneworkFort Piqua Plaza in Spring No. 1Fort Piqua is an impressive architectural structure displaying Richardson Romanesque-style architecture in downtown Piqua Ohio. Built in 1891, the Orr-Statler Block once contained a four-story hotel which hosted Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Harry Houdini, Woodrow Wilson and John P. Sousa. In the early 2000s, the building was revitalized and today hosts the Piqua Public Library.

Piqua, Ohio is a fascinating small town.  If you like to see more art prints of Piqua, check out this master gallery or just double click on the images.  In addition to Piqua Ohio Memorials, I offer portfolios capturing impressive Piqua Architecture, pretty Piqua Parks, and the colorful Piqua High School stadium.

This farm field scene remains a favorite.  Sure, Ohio farmlands are commonplace, but this pretty landscape involved a field of wheat vice fields of corn, which are so commonplace in the Midwest.  During this evening image, the setting sun backlights the wheat in golden hues, creating a warm nostalgic glow.  Perhaps the viewer’s mind begins to ponder about amber waves of grain.  The scene offers intriguing contrasting light between the golden wheatfield and the dark clouds which were clearing the Miami Valley skies as sunset approached. 

 

For many, this Miami Valley sunset captures the essence of evidence-based design (EBD).  In a previous post, I discussed how researchers experimented with various settings, they learned people become the most relaxed when surrounded by nature.  As EBD becomes mainstream in hospitals and medical facilities, I’m surprised that evidence-based design wall décor principles haven’t appeared in corporate waiting rooms and hotel lobbies. 

 

A Google search of waiting room art reveals spaces where interior designers used art prints that were diligently color-coordinated with the hues of walls, carpet, and furniture.  In looking at these images closer, their use of traditional pastel prints, abstract art or minimalist artwork involving shapes of various shades misses an important opportunity.  Sure, they nailed the color coordination, but the artwork does nothing more than accentuate the color palate. 

 

Waiting room artwork is an opportunity where the companies can begin placing their clients at ease.  To this point, researchers have divided hospital floor space with one side of the hallway having rooms displaying pastel-painted floral scenes, abstract art, and other pieces appropriate for an episode of the Antiques Roadshow.  On the other side of the hallway, researchers installed scenes of nature, gardens, and other representational landscape prints.  Several studies conducted in this manner revealed the patients immersed in artwork featuring nature healed faster, required less pain medication, and were discharged quicker than those from the other side of the hallway.  As a result of these studies, hospitals have transitioned their corridors and patient rooms over to art prints which feature photographs of nature.  If this approach places patients at ease, it’s a little bewildering that many of today’s corporate waiting rooms still use outdated wall décor.

 

As a client sits in your foyer or transits your hallways, why not give them something pleasant to rest their eyes on?  Bypassing this opportunity, people will sit and dwell on the upcoming meeting. Perhaps the uncertainty of the appointment begins to weigh on them.  Researchers have already validated the abstract or painted pastel artwork isn’t effective, so why not upgrade your wall décor which employs EBD principles and reduces the stress for your visitors and clients?  The outdated subject matter, hidden behind the glare of glass, costs the same, if not more, than a vivid and representational landscape printed on canvas. 

 

The sunset scene supporting this article serves as a good example.  First, it’s a representational landscape as the viewer immediately recognizes it’s a sunset over a wheat field.  There’s no abstract uncertainty involved in view this print, no trying to interpret what the painter meant to portray.  Who wants to introduce uncertainty in your client’s mind in the moments before they see you?  This scene also employs an EBD principle of long horizons and sightlines which researchers already know reduces stress.  Researchers have pondered the stress reduction might be an innate trait from eons ago when humans first emerged on the African savannahs and our ancestors were part of the food chain, thus the long sightlines provided for enhanced safety and security from threats.  Also, there is something magical about looking into light, particularly backlit vegetation where the contrasting light becomes a form of eye candy.  Finally, if the scene employs a local park or iconic point of interest, you have the added benefit of your wall décor now becoming a visitor talking point where they reminiscence about a memory or recent visit to the feature  Given all these benefits, its puzzling that so many of today’s waiting room still employ grandma’s pastel-painted gazebo or abstract square and circles linked to your interior designer’s color palette when your wall décor can be doing so much more for you.

Cedar Cliff Falls in Spring No. 9 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/4/cedar-cliff-falls-in-spring-no-9 A Peaceful Cedarville Ohio Waterfall

Cedar Cliff Falls flows outside the quaint village of Cedarville Ohio.  A recent boardwalk construction project by the Greene County Parks & Trails allows visitors to safely view the falls from the edge of the gorge formed by Massie Creek.  On this spring day, the creek spills over the falls while surrounding lush trees pleasantly frame the scene.
 

Cedar Cliff Falls as seen from a bridge spanning Massie Creek gorge where a long exposure gives the water a smooth appearanceCedar Cliff Falls in Spring No. 9Cedarville, Ohio hosts Cedarville University which is a Christian Undergraduate school. Its also a pretty campus which supports several iconic building, sculptures and Cedar Lake which lies in the middle of campus. Adjacent to the village lies a host of Greene County Ohio parks to include: Peterson Park, Indian Mound Reserve, Cedar Falls, and Massie Creek Park. These images form canvas prints which serve as perfect mementos to Cedarville University graduates and those seeking Green County Ohio artwork.

This gallery holds my Cedarville Fine Art Photography art prints which capture Greene County Ohio parks particularly Cedar Cliff Falls. Where most waterfalls are heavily shaded, Cedar Cliff Falls in the spring is surrounded by gorgeous wildflowers. Long exposures of the waterfall as Massie’s Creek spills into the gorge below creates timeless art prints which make for vivid canvas wall décor.

This gallery also captures Cedarville University’s pretty campus which is adorned with several sculptures like Synchronicity X (by Jon Hudson Barlow) and Opened Eyes (by Dr. James DeVries). In addition to these Cedarville Ohio points of interest, the campus groundskeepers do an amazing job as sidewalks and pathways meander by vibrant and colorful gardens.

Some of my best photography arises from Cedarville Ohio so if you are seeking a Cedarville University graduation gift, consider a framed print from one of Cedarville’s landmarks.

A golden hour view from Dead Horse Point, while visiting Dead Horse State Park on a summer evening near Moab Utah.  As a geology major, I appreciated the meander view of the Colorado River carving down through the sedimentary layers…and thus time.  200 million years ago, this area alternated between shallow oceans, extinct deserts, freshwater lakes and floodplains.  Although buried eons ago, the Colorado River once again exposes these Jurassic environments.  On this evening, the sun’s warm light rakes across the land infinite lands revealing this timeless view.

Dayton Skyline in Black and White https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/3/dayton-skyline-in-black-and-white Black and White Fine Art Prints of the Dayton Skyline

When I first started my photography pursuits, I’d occasionally capture a scene that didn’t reach my aspirations.  Occasionally I would convert the image to black and white only to learn it still lacked impact. 

Recently, I was approached (twice in the same week) for black and white prints of the Dayton Skyline.  Both clients were seeking elegant prints while touting their Dayton Ohio pride.  Although my favored Dayton cityscape prints look spectacular in color, I was pleased how they also worked well in black and white.   

These Dayton sunset prints entailed colorful evenings where the below-the-horizon sun raked light across the bottom of the clouds creating intriguing skies which the Great Miami River mimicked in fascinating fashion.

Wright-Patterson AFB Going-away or Retirement Gift https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/3/wright-patterson-afb-going-away-or-retirement-gift Are you shopping for a Wright-Patterson AFB Retirement Gift or Farewell Gift?

Having served in the US Air Force for 24 years, and my wife serving 10 years, we’re familiar with making friends and then sending them off to their next adventure.  One of the challenges for us entailed finding the right PCS-gift for the upcoming farewell gathering.  Plaques are nice but they tend to accumulate in a worn box adorned with different colored moving stickers….right?

 

As my wife and I press on with our second careers, we still have several boxes of plaques, but as we decorate our new offices, we still reached for the artwork pieces which remind us of those we served with.  If you are honoring someone who served at the Air Force Research Laboratory, 88th Air Base Wing, Air Force Material Command, Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, 445th Air Base Wing, Air Force Institute of Technology, the AF Installation Contracting Agency, we think these Wright-Patterson AFB Retirement Gifts or Farewell Gifts are for you. 

 

Although we’ve only been back in the Dayton area for 4 years, we have a host of prints that represent Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the region’s rich aviation heritage. 

"Huffman Prairie Twilight” is my best-selling print!  When people pass by my art fair tent, invariably, this print draws them in and starts a conversation.  I had a retiree from the Air Force Research Labs pass through my home a couple of months ago.  He was holiday shopping for a specific nature print for his wife and recalled seeing my work in a local gallery.  As he started to leave, he saw a familiar print in the adjacent room.  His team had selected “Huffman Prairie Twilight” as their retirement gift to him.  Until that coincidental moment, he was unaware I was the photographer, but the experience led to another great conversation.

Huffman Prairie TwilightHuffman Prairie TwilightHuffman Prairie serves as the epicenter of aviation. Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Bros set up operations in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight. Today the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB which is home to the 445th Airlift Wing. On this evening, the wing’s C-17s take to the evening skies as a colorful sunset burst over the Miami Valley.

“Golden Hour Over Huffman Prairie No. 2 and No. 6” represents two more popular prints.  One version of this print is 8’ wide in the lobby of the Kettering Cancer Center.  Also a couple of months ago, I had two friends inquire about the various places my artwork resides.  They shared who they were sitting in the waiting room and pondered who this large print emulated my style.

Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Brothers set up research in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight. Today we call this former pasture the Huffman Prairie Flying Field and a National Historic Landmark. Although the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio it is preserved by the National Park Service in partnership with the Aviation Trail Inc. who promotes Dayton’s Aviation Heritage. In this image, late afternoon thunderstorms began dissipating allowing the day’s last rays to paint this historic land in warm golden colors.

“Fair Day Over Wright Flyer Sculpture No. 1” is another popular print.  There are four stainless steel sculptures of early Wright Brothers airplanes, each representing a different model of the Wright Flyer.  This 1909 Wright Flyer greets visitors who pass through Gate 1B on their way to AFRL or the SPOs at the bottom of the hill. 

Fair Day Over Wright Flyer Sculpture No. 1Fair Day Over Wright Flyer Sculpture No. 1The Wright Memorial Chapter of the Air Force Association at Wright-Patterson AFB celebrate Dayton’s favorite sons by commissioning a stainless-steel sculpture of the 1909 Wright Flyer. A bronze statue of Wilbur Wright sits upright at the Flyer’s controls as a second statue of Orville stands to the right of the aircraft. Larry Godwin, the artist from Brundidge AL, presented the “Wright Flyer Memorial” on 2 Aug 2003, which was 94 years to the day after the original 1909 was accepted as the first military airplane. This sculpture which resides at WPAFB’s Gate 1B and Springfield St on this perfect day, appears to have just taken flight into a blue azure sky filled with a few cumulus clouds.

I normally produce these prints in three sizes, 11” x 18”, 20” x 32”, or 30” x 48”.  My favored format entails selling these images as framed giclee canvas prints which come ready to hang.  I cover the back of these prints in black paper which can serve as space for farewell wishes.  These prints are produced using Canon Lucia Pigments which are rated for 100 years.  If you prefer a photo paper print, we can custom print one for you which sets you up for custom matting and framing.  Since I already use Dayton Art Solutions in Kettering Ohio, I’m willing to meet you there as you customize your framing options which save you a couple of trips around town. 

 

Don’t forget the spouse!  Maybe the ideas above solve your challenge for the military member, but how are you going to honor the spouse….another cookbook?!?!  Consider a different approach, where a spouse's farewell gift entails giving them something that reminds them of their favored Miami Valley spot.  Perhaps the spouse is an avid outdoor enthusiast?  If so, we have many prints from our awesome local parks.  Maybe they earned a college degree while in the Dayton area?  We offer pretty campus scenes from the University of Dayton, Wright State University, Cedarville University, Miami University, and more.  For these prints, navigate to the school’s county via the pull-down menu or just use the search function on the upper left of my webpage.  Another popular spouse gift entails seasonal prints of their Miami Valley wedding venue.  Although they already have wedding photos from their spring wedding, consider a print capturing their special spot during a stunning summer sunset or pretty fall day.  Again, sales via my art fair tent prove this is a frequent reason for purchasing my prints. 

Sunburst appears over Sugarcreek MetroPark Osage Orange Tunnel warmly backlighting autumn's golden leaves.Autumn Stroll Under the Osage Orange Tunnel, Sugarcreek MetroPark No. 4Another Dayton-area gem lies in Sugarcreek MetroPark (Sugarcreek Township Ohio, near Bellbrook Ohio). The Osage Orange Tunnel serves as a treat any time of year, but on this autumn morning, the sun’s azimuth aligned with the iconic trail which warmly backlights the golden leaves creating a visual wonder. Dayton’s Fountain of Lights panorama erupting during colorful sunset where the fountain sprays catch the warm sunlightFountain of Light Finale No. 1Dayton hosts many wonders to include the Fountain of Lights which is reportedly one of the world’s largest fountains. The Five Rivers MetroParks operates the fountains during the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. At the close of the season and with storm clouds clearing the Miami Valley skies, I arrived at the confluence of the Mad River and Great Miami River for one of the year’s last sunset displays. The varying cloud heights refracted the day’s last rays in their own unique manner, thus giving the sky added depth as if to strike serendipitous harmony with the warmly backlit fountain sprays.
 
Colorful view of UD’s Chapel of Immaculate Conception with surrounding landscape in full spring bloom under blue skiesUniversity of Dayton Chapel in Spring No. 5A favored place during an early spring in Dayton Ohio lies in visiting the University of Dayton Chapel of the Immaculate Conception. Following a renovation from a few years ago, grounds keepers annually change alter their flowerscapes. On spring day, the UD campus reached peak color as the tulips and trees bloomed and the Miami Valley skies mimicked the iconic blue bell tower.

Diggs III Laboratory for Life Science Research at Wright State University, Dayton Ohio. The stainless-steel sculpture is another masterpiece by John Barlow Hudson from Yellow Springs. He appropriately titled the work, Double Helix, paying reverence to the research in the surrounding buildings. The sculpture is 25 feet long and 8 feet high where the polished metal dodecahedrons represent strands of DNA. On this autumn day, the maple trees displayed their red foliage under amazingly blue skies.

Several weeks prior to this image, an EF-4 tornado passed through this park. Thanks to hundreds of Miami Valley volunteers, Dayton continues its recovery. Colorful sunset over Cox Arboretum where pink stratocumulus clouds form intriguing leading lines to the western skyColorful Cox Arboretum Sunset No. 3Cox Arboretum and Gardens MetroPark is one of many parks in Dayton’s Five Rivers MetroParks system. James M. Cox and his family established the park in 1962 through the donation of their land. Fifteen years ago, the James M. Cox Jr. Arboretum Foundation hired Francois Goffinet, an amazing landscape designer from Belgium, to establish park’s master plan. Today the park hosts many features to include the Water Garden and Monet Bridge as captured in this scene. In this image, an impressive sunset illuminated the clouds creating a spectacle throughout the Miami Valley.

Today’s Cox Arboretum MetroPark owes its beginning to James M. Cox, Jr. who used the farm as a weekend retreat called Spring Running.  Later in his life and with no heirs, James M. Cox was approached with a plan to use the property as an arboretum.  In 1972, the arboretum became part of the Five Rivers MetroParks system.  The park now consists of a shrub garden, butterfly house, children’s maze, crab apple allée, many gardens and trails which meander throughout the park.  In this evening image, the Monet Bridge straddles the Water Garden as the park’s trees filter the day’s last rays.

Celebrating Why Dayton Ohio is a Great City to Call Home

The five-side pavilion residing on the edge of the Great Miami River represents the five rivers which flow through the Dayton area. The structure also represents the spot where the first Daytonians, Samuel Thompson and Benjamin Van Cleve came ashore on 1 Apr 1796. A pavilion inscription shares the first person to set foot on shore was Catherin Van Cleve Thompson, great-great-grandmother of the Wright Brothers.

I grew up in Dayton and my ancestors are buried around the city’s hillsides.  In 1990, I left Dayton as I began flying for the USAF.  Following my retirement, my family and move back to Dayton in 2017.  The Air Force moved us every year or two and although we lived in some great places, the moves gave us a lot of perspective.  The purpose of this page is to share all the great things taking place in Dayton, Ohio with a fresh set of eyes.

Dayton's Five Rivers MetroParks

The Five Rivers MetroParks operates the fountains during the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. At the close of the season and with storm clouds clearing the Miami Valley skies, I arrived at the confluence of the Mad River and Great Miami River for one of the year’s last sunset displays. The varying cloud heights refracted the day’s last rays in their own unique manner, thus giving the sky added depth as if to strike serendipitous harmony with the warmly backlit fountain sprays.

Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Brothers set up research in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight. Today we call this former pasture the Huffman Prairie Flying Field and a National Historic Landmark. Although the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio it is preserved by the National Park Service in partnership with the Aviation Trail Inc. who promotes Dayton’s Aviation Heritage.

Golden Hour Over Spring Valley Wildlife Area No. 11 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/2/golden-hour-over-spring-valley-wildlife-area-no-11 Evidence-based Design Artwork – Art of Frozen Time

Today, I thought I’d share this print of a perfect summer day over Spring Valley Wildlife Area, Spring Valley, Ohio.  As work to refine my fine art photography, I’ve studied how nature photography supports healthcare art clients.  I thought I’d highlight several evidence-based design concepts captured in this classic Ohio landscape scene. 

 

Representation Landscape

In this art print, we have a representational landscape which means, the viewer quickly comprehends the scene.  Where abstract art may be a desired art form, it also creates confusion and apprehension.  In a healthcare environment where patients and families may already be overwhelmed with these feelings, a representational landscape print allows the viewer to rest their eyes within the scene, making this wall decor a point of solace. 

 

Calm Waterscapes

Another positive aspect of this wall print is it’s a peaceful waterscape.  Art consultants want to avoid high-energy water scenes such as large waves crashing ashore or fast-moving currents splashing against river boulders.  This Spring Valley Ohio wetland presents a very calm water scene where the air is still allowing the water surface to reflect the sky above. 

 

Peaceful Colors

In a healthcare environment, designers will want to avoid red in large qualities.  Red may work as small print accents, but if the color is too overt, it may quick to remind viewers of blood.  Intuitively, blues and greens are known calming colors where the viewer finds the hues soothing and re-enforces the biophilia theory mentioned in earlier blogs.  In this Ohio march setting, the blue skies and lush green vegetation works well in a healthcare environment. 

 

Openness and Long Sightlines

Another factor embedded in this scene lies in its open sky and clear views to the local horizon.  Researchers have measured a lack of stress and anxiety when viewers are presented with scenes portraying these traits.  Researchers postulate perhaps it’s something deeper in the human psyche where life on the African savannah proved more secure from sudden ambushed given the longer sightlines.  A composition which allows the eyes to rest in the foreground, mid-ground, and horizon provides a pleasing perspective and hopefully a moment of solitude.

Sunrise Over Spring Valley Wildlife Area No. 4 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/2/sunrise-over-spring-valley-wildlife-area-no-4 Evidence-Based Design Photography – Art of Frozen Time

In highlighting the beauty of Ohio’s landscape, I thought I’d share this morning sunrise scene from the Spring Valley Wildlife Area, Spring Valley, Ohio.  This canvas print hangs in a hospital hallway where art consultants specializing in evidence-based design (EBD) used this print to address their healthcare art client needs.  This wetlands marsh captures an environment filled with an abundance of life and aquatic vegetation.  A key term in EBD is Biophilia which recognizes humans feel an innate draw to nature and experience comfort and relaxation once immersed in nature.  Realizing nature art prints help in promoting patient healing, hospital designers seek to adorn patient rooms, hospital hallways and waiting rooms with art prints of nature.  In this wall print, the sun rising through the still air also gives the view a sense of hope and calm, which makes this an ideal example of art which helps the healing.

Marcum Park is a new park in Hamilton Ohio (Butler County Ohio).  Joe and Sarah Marcum gifted $3.5 Million dollars to the Hamilton Community Foundation which converted the former Mercy Hospital lot into a phenomenal green space adjacent to RiversEdge Amphitheater.  A year after the park opened in 2017, and with the help of Stewart Iron Works and SAI Fountains, this fountain completed long-term plans for a vertical structure in the park.  The heart-shaped cut out from the M fountain pays tribute to Joe and Sarah Marcum who gifted the park to Hamilton Ohio.  On this autumn evening, the light from the setting sun illuminated the fountain waters with golden light creating a dynamic and magical scene.

Late Fall Sunset over Morris Reserve No. 7 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/2/late-fall-sunset-over-morris-reserve-no-7 Stunning Sunset Over Sugarcreek Township & Bellbrook Ohio

Morris Reserve is part of the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District, in Sugarcreek Township near Bellbrook, Ohio, and consists of a former family farm converted over to tallgrass prairie. Although this is a relatively new park, park planners continue to improve its aesthetics such designating formal trails which meanders throughout the park.  On this evening, mother nature surprised me with the sudden arrival of upper-level clouds over the Miami Valley.

A meandering trail leads the viewer through an Ohio tall-grass prairie towards a colorful sunset on a late fall eveningLate Fall Sunset over Morris Reserve No. 7Morris Reserve is part of the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District, near Bellbrook, Ohio, and consists of a former family farm converted over to tallgrass prairie. Although this is a relatively new park, park planners continue to improve its aesthetics such designating formal trails which meanders throughout the park. On this evening, mother nature surprised me with the sudden arrival of upper-level clouds over the Miami Valley. As the sun descended below the horizon, these clouds caught the last warm light from their still lit altitude, briefly giving all of us a visual treat.

I'm a frequent visitor to this park and have more print in this Bellbrook Ohio gallery.  If you are an art consultant, I also categorize my prints by subject matter.  In this case, this print lies in my Pathways gallery,  where I delineate allees, country roads, covered walkways, bike trails, and footpaths all of which entail strong leading lines.

Dayton's Fiery Fountain of Lights https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2021/1/Dayton-fiery-fountain-of-lights Dayton Fountain of Lights

At 200-feet high and 800-feet wide, the Five Rivers Fountain of Lights is reportedly one of the largest fountains in the world!  Today, RiverScape MetroPark is an impressive and beautiful addition to Dayton’s skyline.  Capturing this image took many trips in order to capture the fountain spray at sunset while light clouds occupied the Miami Valley skies but not so many that blocks the light.   Fortunately, on this evening, clear air between the setting sun and Riverscape MetroPark allowed the sun to illuminate the fountain’s spray amazing orange colors.

Today, it’s an impressive and beautiful addition to Dayton’s skyline. I’ve made many trips to this point (maybe too many) only to realize a distant cloud had blocked the setting sun’s warm colors, resulting in a scene with dull blue and grey tones. Although clouds on the horizon seemed poised to mute this sunset’s colors once again, a break in the clouds aligned between the sun and the fountain’s spray allowing the sunlight to paint the spray in amazing crimson colors.

Caesar Creek Crescendo https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2020/12/caesar-creek-crescendo Caesar Creek State Park Twilight

A winter sunset over Caesar Creek State Park (Waynesville, Warren County, OH) where the magical qualities of twilight transitioned to the night sky forming this peaceful waterscape.  I titled this image “Caesar Creek Crescendo” highlighting the many aspects which contributed to this scene of solitude.  This image captures the moment where the sun continues below the horizon rendering the lake surface with darker tones, while the cirrus and altostratus clouds catch colorful light from their still lit altitudes.  For me, it’s as if an orchestra director asked each natural process to peak at this moment producing colors and contrast…the crescendo, before quickly yielding to the oncoming darkness.  Yes, I created the stacked cairn for the scene, but as to not spoil the view for others, I returned the shoreline rocks to their original state before hiking into the night.
Peaceful twilight where calm waters of Caesar Creek reflects the colorful pink clouds as stacked rock cairn stands along the shorelineCaesar Creek CrescendoThis late winter sunset over Caesar Creek State Park (Waynesville, Warren County, OH) took on magical qualities with the approach of twilight. As the sun passed deeper below the horizon, the lake surface took on darker tones, while the cirrus and altostratus clouds refracted various colors from their still lit altitudes. The images captured moments before and after this shot reveal how briefly the contrasting colors achieve crescendo before quickly yielding to the night sky. The stacked rocked added to the solitude, but as to not spoil the view for others, the rocks were returned to their original location.

There are more Caesar Creek images at this link.  If you'd like to see more twilight waterscapes, I have a small portfolio here!

A magical moonrise over Sedona Arizona featuring a spire that rises between the buttes.  The formation is known as Cathedral Rock, which also serves as one of Sedona’s energy vortex sites.  As visitors explore this point of interest, many perceive a concentration of mystical energy which promotes enhanced meditation, healing, and creativity.  The subtle light and dark patches in the sky are anticrepuscular rays that spanned the sky over Red Rock Country converging on the eastern horizon.  Minutes before, large western horizon clouds blocked the light, until the sinking sun found clear air thereby painting the red Schnebly Hill Sandstone in warm light.

Surprise Sunset Over Dayton Skyline No. 2 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2020/11/surprise-sunset-over-dayton-skyline-no-2 Colorful Dayton Skyline Sunset

I don’t often share my failures, but the below image captures the reality of most photo outings.  I worked hard to be at the right spot, its official sunset and when I look around, the skies are filled with clouds which paint the scene with various tones of grey.  Early on, I would begin packing up my gear.  On one outing in 2015, I was cruelly surprised by sudden stunning light appearing in my rearview mirror…only by now, I’m confined on the highway with no nearby exits.  I should have waited a few more minutes by the Mississippi River across from the Gateway Arch….that would have been a keeper print.  That moment became my penance for not being patient.

Dayton Skyline Over Labor Day WeekendDayton Skyline Over Labor Day Weekend

…and here’s why I’ve learned to wait.  This spectacular sunset occurred Labor Day weekend over Dayton Ohio.  This stunning light took the skies over the Miami Valley only 5 minutes after the first dull grey image I released with this image.  I was standing with a visiting couple from Indianapolis exploring our RiverScape MetroPark.  I remember explaining that although this scene looks questionable, sometimes really incredible things happen when the setting sun finds clear skies and illuminates the clouds from underneath. 

 

This sunset started with a hint of red, right before the entire sky ignited as if were a scene from Ron Howard’s Backdraft.  As the skyfire expanded horizon to horizon I elected to pursue a panoramic approach where it required 70 separate images to capture this spectacle.

This image captures a summer sunrise from Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park, outside of Moab, Utah.  Located on the Island in the Sky Mesa, this scene was 15 million years in the making (uplift of the Colorado Plateau) where erosion of a small pothole in Navajo Sandstone lead to today’s rock arch.  The image captures the moment where the rising sun briefly paints the underside of Mesa Arch and warms Buck Canyon in amazing orange light while silhouetting the distant La Sal Mountains. As you can see from the thin slit of clear air on the horizon, the moment was transitory, as a cloud bank quickly obscured the sun.

Dayton Rainbow Skyline https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2020/9/dayton-rainbow-skyline Rainbow Over the Dayton Skyline

This scene took place on 3 May 2020  as the Great Miami River flows under the Dayton, Ohio Skyline.  In moments before this image, the skies were grey, and winds...blustery which drove me to ponder the wisdom of standing in the rain with my digital camera.  When I started this 86-image panoramic sequence, the sun found a break in clouds at the last possible moment.  Realizing I seconds left, I quickly pointed my camera into the sun.  During this bustle, the rainbow unknowingly formed behind me.  Perhaps it was the steady rain and the constant wiping of my lens, but I was engrossed in the technique.  With my last planned shot, I stepped back from the camera and finally noted the still off-camera rainbow, so I continued the panoramic sweep.  Despite building a big picture, I nearly missed an even larger one.

The Ross Covered Bridge resides in Tawawa Park, Sidney Ohio.  The wood bridge (also known as Sidney Ohio’s covered bridge) was constructed in 1971 but drew its design from central Ohio pioneer bridge builder Rueben L. Partridge.  Today, the bridge spans Tawawa Creek as it meanders through the park.  In this golden hour image, the red bridge basks in warm light and the thinning autumn leaves and clear blue sky.

Dayton hosts many wonders to include the Fountain of Lights which is reportedly one of the world’s largest fountains.  The Five Rivers MetroParks operates the fountains during the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  At the close of the season and with storm clouds clearing the Miami Valley skies, I arrived at the confluence of the Mad River and Great Miami River for one of the year’s last sunset displays.  The varying cloud heights refracted the day’s last rays in their own unique manner, thus giving the sky added depth as if to strike serendipitous harmony with the warmly backlit fountain sprays.

As a believer in enjoying the outdoors, we owe John H. Patterson for this Dayton Gem when he donated 297 acres to form Hills and Dales in 1907.  In designing the park, he hired famous landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers.  In 1993, the Five Rivers MetroPark leased 63 of the acres to form Hills and Dales MetroPark.  In keeping with Patterson’s vision, park designers erected this Adirondack-style shelter which overlooks Dogwood Pond in Kettering Ohio.  In this summer image, the sun peaks through the surrounding wood line warmly illuminating the peaceful paths around Dogwood Pond.

Caesar Creek Twilight No. 1 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2020/2/caesar-creek-twilight-no-1 Caesar Creek State Park Twilight

On this evening, visitors to Caesar Creek State Park enjoyed a little skyfire as high-level cirrus clouds slowly passed through the Ohio sky.  At one point, the clouds consolidated into two bands which delightfully drew the eye to the distant horizon.  As twilight deepened into the blue hour, the lofty leading lines took on a rich salmon color as the lake’s waters assumed an evening calm forming a perfect reflection of the spectacle overhead.

This set of images reveals where Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park managers at Morris Reserve, near Bellbrook Ohio and in Sugarcreek Township, restored 100 acres of farmland back to tallgrass prairie state.  For this year, unique weather conditions set the stage for a rare super bloom which drew many from the Miami Valley.  In this late spring sunset, petals of Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia hirta) mimic the rays emanating from the setting sun hanging over Three Trees Farm.

In 1930, Carlton and Jeanette Smith began cultivating an adjacent plot, at the corner of Oakwood Ave and Walnut Lane, into a garden which offered continuous bloom.  In January 1975, the Smiths donated the family home and adjacent garden to the City of Oakwood, Ohio.  The city sold the home and uses the funds to maintain the Smith Memorial Gardens with amazing plants.  In April 1996, Ohio Magazine surmised Smith Gardens were “finest tiny public gardens in Ohio. It's like a secret treasure on an ordinary side street.”  As seen in this image, the city faithfully pursues the Smith’s vision in maintaining this little piece of heaven.

This October moonrise over the Cleveland Skyline is known as the Hunter’s Moon.  For Native Americans, this was a feast day due to the fattened deer ready for winter weather.  From Lakewood Park, this view consisted of thick clouds which initially obscured the moon but later added a moody element as it rose above the clearing clouds.

Colonel and Mrs. Edward Deeds commissioned the largest carillon in Ohio and gifted the bell tower to the Dayton community when builders finished it in 1942.  Today, we call the 57-bell tower, Deeds Carillon, which also occupies its place on the National Register of Historic Places.  In a Miami Valley tradition, and with the support of Connie and John Taylor, the park decorates the carillon with 20,000 lights forming Ohio’s tallest tree of lights.  In Native American tradition, they call the December full moon rise, the Long Nights Moon, as captured here rising over the Carillon Tree of Light and the Great Miami River.

Weeping Angel https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2018/12/weeping-angel Weeping Angel, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland Ohio

Ohio’s has impressive cemeteries to include Cleveland’s Lakeview Cemetery.  It famously hosts President James Garfield and a distant relative of mine named John D. Rockefeller.  It also hosts an impressive sculpture named, “The Angel of Death Victorious” by Herman Matzen who was commissioned to memorialize entrepreneur Francis Haserot and his family.  This piece entails a seated and stoic looking angel holding an extinguished torch upside down, symbolizing death’s triumph over the living.  In addition to the artist’s hand, time and weather also left their mark as dark streaks stream from the angel’s patinaed face, leading many to label her the weeping angel.  In this image, the red headstone proved a distraction, thus I selectively desaturated the surrounding granite feature while employing a small aperture to extenuate the sun into a starburst.

Cox Arboretum and Gardens MetroPark is one of many parks in Dayton’s Five Rivers MetroParks system.  James M. Cox and his family established the park in 1962 through the donation of their land.  Fifteen years ago, the James M. Cox Jr. Arboretum Foundation hired Francois Goffinet, an amazing landscape designer from Belgium, to establish park’s master plan.  Today the park hosts many features to include the Water Garden and Monet Bridge as captured in this scene.  In this image, an impressive sunset illuminated the clouds creating a spectacle throughout the Miami Valley.

The day leading up to this sunset consisted of skies full of towering cumulus clouds and maturing thunderstorms.  Arriving at Caesar Creek State Park Campground at sunset I found the western horizon retained some color, but nothing exciting due to distant clouds blocking the light.  About the time I began to contemplate returning to my truck, I noted the shoreline around was painted in an orange cast, which drove me to look up and behind my initial subject.  Despite the various cloud layers, the bottom of this cumulonimbus cloud caught sight of the setting sun and refracted light in the most amazing colors.  I quickly leveled my tripod, attached my widest lens in portrait orientation and took this series of 18 images in a panoramic sweep.  Dramatic stormy sunset over Caesar Creek State Park where a cloud glows in bright salmon colors as the rest of the landscape takes on orange huesCaesar Creek Storm Clearing No. 1The day leading up to this sunset consisted of skies full of towering cumulus clouds and maturing thunderstorms.

At 200-feet high and 800-feet wide, the Five Rivers Fountain of Lights is reportedly one of the largest fountains in the world!  Today, RiverScape MetroPark is an impressive and beautiful addition to Dayton’s skyline.  Capturing this image took many trips in order to capture the fountain spray at sunset while light clouds occupied the Miami Valley skies but not so many that blocks the light.   Fortunately, on this evening, clear air between the setting sun and Riverscape MetroPark allowed the sun to illuminate the fountain’s spray amazing orange colors.

Today, it’s an impressive and beautiful addition to Dayton’s skyline. I’ve made many trips to this point (maybe too many) only to realize a distant cloud had blocked the setting sun’s warm colors, resulting in a scene with dull blue and grey tones. Although clouds on the horizon seemed poised to mute this sunset’s colors once again, a break in the clouds aligned between the sun and the fountain’s spray allowing the sunlight to paint the spray in amazing crimson colors.

Five Rivers Fountain of Lights at Sunset https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2018/8/five-rivers-fountain-of-lights-at-sunset Dayton Fountains Illuminated by the Setting Sun

A key feature of Dayton Ohio’s skyline entails the Five Rivers Fountain of Lights.  Designers erected five fountain-tipped towers representing each of the rivers flowing through the Miami Valley.  The fountain erupts once an hour, creating Dayton’s own geyser at the confluence of the Great Miami and Mad Rivers.  This cycle occurred at sunset on Memorial Day under the richly-colored skies of the setting sun. 

Dayton’s Fountain of Lights panorama erupting during colorful sunset where the fountain sprays catch the warm sunlightFountain of Light Finale No. 1Dayton hosts many wonders to include the Fountain of Lights which is reportedly one of the world’s largest fountains. The Five Rivers MetroParks operates the fountains during the 100 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. At the close of the season and with storm clouds clearing the Miami Valley skies, I arrived at the confluence of the Mad River and Great Miami River for one of the year’s last sunset displays. The varying cloud heights refracted the day’s last rays in their own unique manner, thus giving the sky added depth as if to strike serendipitous harmony with the warmly backlit fountain sprays.

In 2016, the Morris Family transferred 177 acres to the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District….land occupied by their family for almost 200 years.  The park district near Bellbrook, Ohio, memorializes the parcel today as the Morris Reserve with 100 acres set aside as tallgrass prairie.  After two years of land management, the park district has created a scene reminiscent of Window XP’s peaceful desktop scene called Bliss.

A meadow of bright yellow flowers with a lush green tree line on the distant horizon, all lying under blue skies and puffy cumulus clouds.Bellbrook BlissWhen the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District acquired land from the Morris family, they introduced the yellow lance-leaf coreopsis to the former farm field, thereby creating this Miami Valley tall grass prairie scene. Like other members of the sunflower family, the flower’s vivid colors serve as a visual complement to the blue skies and cumulus clouds occupying the skies over Sugarcreek Township.

Huffman Prairie Sunset No. 2 https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2018/7/huffman-prairie-sunset-no-2 Huffman Prairie Sunset with Disappating Thunderstorm

Huffman Prairie serves as the epicenter of aviation.  Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Bros set up operations in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight.  Today the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB which is home to the 445th Airlift Wing.  On this evening, the wing’s C-17s take to the evening skies as a colorful sunset burst over the Miami Valley.

Following their 17 Dec 1903 demonstration, the Wright Brothers set up research in this field conducting 150 flights in 1904-1905 which refined the mastery of flight. Today we call this former pasture the Huffman Prairie Flying Field and a National Historic Landmark. Although the prairie resides on Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio it is preserved by the National Park Service in partnership with the Aviation Trail Inc. who promotes Dayton’s Aviation Heritage. In this image, late afternoon thunderstorms began dissipating allowing the day’s last rays to paint this historic land in warm golden colors.

Rock Skipping at Sunset https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2018/7/rock-skipping-at-sunset Rock Skipping at Sunset, Caesar Creek State Park

Caesar Creek State Park, near Waynesville, Warren County, OH, is a favored place to watch colorful sunsets.  On this day, I encountered difficulty finding foreground subjects do the reservoir’s high waters.  Not wanting to see a colorful sunset go to waste, I tried to improvise a foreground subject by creating a successful set of ripple marks from a skipped rock.  After practicing my technique and then synchronizing my throw with the camera’s timer, I caught this peaceful image. 

A skipped-rock forms series of concentric circles leading the eye into the colorful sunsetRock Skipping at SunsetFollowing days of heavy rain, the clearing skies produced a patch of clouds which seemed poised for colorfully being illuminate by the below-the-horizon sun. The subsequent chase led me to Caesar Creek where I discovered the high-water levels submerged all known potential foreground subjects. Not wanting to yield this spectacular sunset due to poor composition, I elected to skip rocks across the surface creating a leading line towards the setting sun.

This colorful sunset served as a visual reward following a winter visit to Caesar Creek State Park, near Waynesville, Ohio.  Over the previous weeks, I witnessed ice trying to form over one of Ohio’s deepest lake.  On this day, as I discovered a new overlook, I was taken back by the view before me.  This particular winter was so cold that Caesar Creek developed pressure ridges of ice.  I found the spectacle compositionally intriguing as the broken ice formed leading lines towards the sinking sun.

The Army Corps of Engineers dammed Caesar Creek in response to the Flood Control Act of 1938 thereby forming a 3,741-acre state park near Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio.  Prior to this work, the area hosted dry land and even a Quaker village.  Today, the reservoir stores storm waters until engineers can release its waters in a controlled fashion.  As a result, the reservoir fills formerly wooded lands as captured in this late autumn scene.  In this image, it was well after sunset where the damp air and dark skies had long chased away visitors thereby creating a sense of isolation and peace.

Many define Midwest winters as frequently cloudy and this day was no different.  In fact, the Prairie State experienced nearly two weeks of continuous overcast skies.  During this evening drive, satellite imagery suggested clearing skies might arrive with nightfall.  Anticipating a colorful sunset, I headed to Silver Lake outside of Highland (Madison County), IL.  Disappointingly, as the time of official sunset passed, the western horizon retained its muted hues.  Minutes later, as the sun sank further below the horizon, the break in western skies allowed distant sunrays to paint the underside of these overhead clouds in fantastic colors.

Eads in 1874.  The bridge enjoyed many firsts to include the world’s first all-steel construction as well as becoming the longest arch bridge in the world.  To instill confidence of its sturdiness, builders led elephants across the bridge to the cheers of crowds.  Today, this St Louis landmark resides on the National Register of Historic Places.  On this evening, high clouds muted the sunset colors which encouraged the blue hour hues to take to the sky, while the warm glow of Laclede's Landing and the new completed Gateway Arch grounds occupy the distant shore.

Spiritual Sunset https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2017/11/spiritual-sunset Peaceful Sunset Over Caesar Creek State Park

Caesar Creek was named for a black slave captured by the Shawnee on a raid along the Ohio River.  The Shawnee adopted Caesar and gave him this valley as his hunting ground.  Nearly 200 years later, the US Army Corps of Engineers constructed a dam over Caesar Creek creating a 2,800-acre lake under authorities embedded in the Flood Control Act of 1938.  With the completion of the dam in 1978, the dam began impounding water forming the deepest lake in Ohio and a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.  In this image, the balanced rocks made for a spiritual moment, but as to not spoil the view for subsequent visitors, I scattered the rocks back to their original location before leaving the scene.

This picturesque scene captures northeastern St Clair County, Illinois, outside Lebanon IL.  The Farmer’s Almanac states Native Americans call this October full moon the Hunter’s Moon, thereby marking the time they should begin their hunt in preparation for the winter months.  The old tree which witnessed the passing of many seasons frames this classic farm scene while the tilled lines lead the eye toward the old shed and the farmhouse on the horizon.

This Forest Park (St Louis MO) image captured a colorful sunset as reflected by the Emerson Grand Basin.  The unusual pink sky and the quickly changing red maples on the Art Hill pathway made for intriguing and colorful accents.  On this evening, the basin fountains almost shine as bright as the generosity of Mary Ann Lee, who along with her husband Desmond, has given so much to the St Louis Community, to include these fountains in her name.

Carlyle Lake Illinois Sunset https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2017/3/carlyle-lake-illinois-sunset Colorful Sunset Over Carlyle Lake, Carlyle Illiniois

This steamy sunset took place over Carlyle Lake (US Army Corps of Engineers), Clinton County, Illinois in late August.  Thunderstorms made their presence felt all day, but as the sun reached for the western horizon, the heavy clouds began to recede leaving behind soppy and humid lands.  Knowing evening storm clouds can produce dramatic sunsets, at my daughter’s urging, we pressed the chase all the way to this scenic setting.  For me, more incredible than this sunset, was my daughter’s spirit while spending a Friday night with her father chasing this fantastic sunset.

Horseshoe Lake resides in the “American Bottom” (aka American Bottoms), which consists of floodplain lands on the western shore of Illinois.  The curve “horseshoe” lake is a remnant of the meandering Mississippi River which became cut off from the main river channel, thereby forming an oxbow lake.  Today, Horseshoe Lake is a US National Natural Landmark and hosts wildlife which stands in contrast to the development of the St Louis greater metropolitan area.  In this winter sunset, the water normally large water lilies succumbed to early deep freezes, allowing the lake to mirror the colorful sunset above.

The St Louis Skyline remains one of the most distinctive in the world with the Gateway Arch symbolizing its unique history.  Before Lewis and Clark launched from nearby shores in 1803, the land was occupied by the French and the Spanish, and before them, an unknown Native American people who built the largest pre-Columbian civilization north of Mexico City.  At one time, St Louis was our nation’s fourth-largest city and hosted the World’s Fair and the 1904 Olympics.  This view was captured from the Compton Hill Water Tower.

With the burial of the massive and ancient Teays River, the receding glacial meltwater created conditions which forged a new river.  In southeast Ohio, the erosional waters worked the soft sandstone into Hocking Hills’ unique geological features such as the Rock House captured in this image.  The surrounding forest and cave walls blocked most of the natural light while visitors simultaneously occupied many portals of this favorite spot.  As a result, this image is a HDR blend of many images correctly exposed for its available light as tourist evacuated each section.  Interior panoramic view of the Rock House Cave showing various openings to the gorge below.Hocking Hills Rock HouseRecent glacial erosion carved 330 million-year-old sandstone into imaginative nooks, grottos, and caves, making the heavily forested Hocking Hills a favorite spot for Ohio visitors.

I enjoy visiting Ohio, especially the Scioto River Valley area where I’m always impressed by the lush green vegetation.  For this early July sunset in northwestern Ross County, several large cumulonimbus clouds formed in the western sky.  This was a particularly impressive sunset, so much so the large cloud on the horizon appears to have grown an arm in order to take a selfie with the bounty growing below.

In this Old Faithful Geyser eruption, the initial shots of spray where backlit by the setting sun.  In this moment the spray created shadowy silhouette in the shape of a lady wearing a Victorian-styled dress.

Hurricane Patricia Paint https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2016/8/hurricane-patricia-paint Colorful Sunset Over St Louis While Frozen Mississippi River Flows By

Hurricane Patricia was the second-most intense tropical cyclone on record worldwide originating south of Mexico, in mid-October 2015.  It grew at a prodigious pace from a tropical storm to Category 5 in 24 hours.  Its remnants reached St Louis at sunset days later filtering the setting sun’s rays and then serving as a canvas for a fiery transition to twilight.  This image shows the Gateway Arch, St Louis Skyline reflected by the Mississippi River.

This January evening served as continuation of cold harsh weather which impacted the upper mid-west. Sensing an opportunity for the setting sun to illuminate the clouds from underneath, I headed to the river to witness a brief and amazing lightshow as the clouds transitioned from dreadful muted tones to wildly warm hues, then to darkness all in a few brief minutes, creating brief skyfire over St Louis.

Cahokian Eclipse https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2016/7/cahokian-eclipse Solar Eclipse Over St Louis Missouri at Sunset

Rather than just photograph the eclipsing sun, I wanted an interesting foreground, such as St Louis’ iconic Gateway Arch and skyline.  The challenge was finding an elevated position along a narrow azimuth which allowed me to capture both the sun and arch in the same telephoto image.  Fortunately, 1,600 years ago, an unknown native American people built the largest and most complex archaeological site north of Mexico City called the Cahokia Mounds…a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  As the occulting moon covered the setting sun, heavy clouds obscured the celestial event, but fate carved out a one-minute window for this incredible view.  A solar eclipse at sunset over the St Louis skyline and iconic Gateway Arch which briefly appeared between the cloudsCahokian EclipseIn late 2014, St Louis looked forward to the once in a lifetime sunset eclipse. Capturing the Arch and Sun in the same image involved finding an elevated position along a very narrow azimuth several miles away in order to keep the sun the same size as the Gateway Arch. Fortunately, 1,600 years ago, an unknown native American people built the largest and most complex archaeological site north of Mexico City. Today, historians call these earthworks, the Cahokia Mounds…a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As the occulting moon covered the setting sun, heavy clouds obscured the celestial event. Undeterred, a small group of worshipers continued their chants and beating drums thereby carving out a fleeting window for this incredible view. The orange hues arise from the solar filter on the end of my 400mm lens.

Mississippi Mirror https://www.artoffrozentime.com/blog/2016/5/mississippi-mirror Gateway Arch Reflected by the Mississippi River at Twilight, St Louis Missouri

I've made several trips to this spot trying to capture the Gateway Arch in amazing light.  For this evening, remnants of Hurricane Patricia (the second-most intense tropical cyclone on record worldwide) were making their way into the St Louis area.  These clouds, coupled with the unusually calm Mississippi River, made for a dramatic scene.  

Twilight over St Louis Missouri where the smooth Mississippi River perfectly reflected the St Louis skyline and Gateway ArchMississippi MirrorHurricane Patricia was the second-most intense tropical cyclone on record worldwide originating south of Mexico, in mid-October 2015. Its remnants reached St Louis at sunset days later. Following this sunset, I lingered next to the Mississippi River through twilight as I rarely recall the river having such a glassy reflection. Normally a stream of river barges continually churn the waters, but on this evening a long pause in traffic allowed the river to reach an unusual state of calm, thus forming a mirror finish to the St Louis skyline.
