beautiful photos, especially the 2nd shot - I love that waterfall & the look of the water, what's it called when the water looks like that? Over-exposed? I can't remember - I have to wait til I get a REAL camera before I can do that. LoL!

Kerri - Thanks so much for the feedback!

Kelly - These were taken in the Hocking Hills... nothing short of beautiful exists in that place.

Tricia - Thanks for your comments. The look of the soft water in the falls is caused by keeping the shutter open for several seconds... so in a sense, it is over-exposed. What kind of camera do you use?

Oh, Heather, this is so amazing! I, too, love the second shot. We went to Hocking Hills this summer when Sarah and Jorge were here. I hadn't been there in years. We always used to go (before we bought this place) and I can't believe how much I missed it. So, your photos take me back. We hiked Conkle's Hollow. It struck me as so incredibly prehistoric. And the oxygen levels--I couldn't stop breathing big gulps of air. Hence your title, I guess! Thanks for this post!

Meg - That's great that you took Sarah and Jorge there. I'm sure he took some marvelous photos while you all were there. Actually, the top 2 photos were taken at Conkle's Hollow. There is something very magical and powerful about that spot - it defies words. Next year I'm going to try to get there earlier in the spring (or even late winter) when the waterfalls are really flowing. I'm glad you liked these.

I love how soft the water looks.

Candace - Thank you. I used a slow shutter speed on all of them to get the water soft. Just a few seconds on the top two, and around 25 seconds on the bottom one.
