Gabe Leidy Profile Information

It's been a while since I posted a multitude of photos at once, but there was so much indecision!  Spent the weekend backpacking a 17-mile route through West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest, which began at Spruce Knob -the state's tallest peak and descended to a series of campsites along gorgeous Seneca Creek.  In between, we passed the remains of a plane crash from 1973, and jumped off and swam beneath a 25-ft waterfall.  That's Wild and Wonderful West Virginia!

‘West Bank’

The plan was to launch the kayak from Wendy Park Sat. morning, but the US Triathalon had other ideas!  There were roughly 5000 contestants in town for the event, so I ended up shooting a very nice sunrise from the west bank of the Flats, instead.  This script sign is located behind the Foundry building on Columbus Rd.

Really excited to announce the launch of www.gabeleidyphotography.com

As some of you know, I've been doing prints, canvases, and framed prints for quite some time, but it’s exciting have an official storefront!  To celebrate, now thru Sunday, take 15% off a cart with promo code ‘15OFF’. I’d be also delighted to hear feedback, good or bad, on the site’s functionality, design, layout, etc.  I’m no website designer, after all!

As always, thanks for your support, shares, & providing legitimacy to something that I love doing!

The waves were awesome on Lake Erie​ yesterday, as giant rollers repeatedly smacked the shoreline.  And, I couldn't help but notice a hint of fall in the air after the sun dropped :) Columbia Beach Park, Bay Village, Ohio

It still confounds me to be able to capture scenes like this, right here in Ohio.  After the morning's deluge, I headed to Brandywine Falls, hoping to add a summer shot to a seasonal montage I’ve been working on.  I planned for partial sunlight and moderate water flow, but arrived to this...raging water, full sun light, and a beautiful RAINBOW!  Sometimes it's nice to receive a gentle reminder that we're not running the show, and that's okay!

'Precipice'

Staring down 317-ft. Vernal Falls, raging with snow-melt runoff was a Yosemite highlight, and what ended up being a 9-mile hike was my favorite of the trip.  For a trek with over 2000-ft elevation gain, it's a very popular trail, and quite narrow in places (you can see it in the bottom left of this image). I left very early in the morning, and flying downhill past the very angry, winded mobs later that morning was a surprisingly gratifying feeling 🙂

So, I lost my Social Security Card & taco socks, today.  Not sure which I'm more upset about.  Turning 33 is no piece of cake, seemingly, and I appreciate all of the well wishes/condolences :) This is how we spent the weekend...visiting friends in Toronto.  If you'd like to wake to pool views like this, you're in luck!  This property is on the market & you can check out the "James Bond property in Toronto" here: https://www.sothebysrealty.com/eng/sales/detail/180-l-911-jxetrn/18a-westmount-park-rd-toronto-on-m9p-1r5

Hector Falls, Allegheny National Forest

I've been jonesing to visit this unique waterfall since the first time I saw a crude photo a couple years ago.  There's nothing terribly difficult about getting here except...getting here!  It's outside of Sheffield, PA off a forest service road within Pennsylvania's 500,000-acre Allegheny NF.  The falls itself is in a gorgeous hemlock ravine, with blooming mountain laurel & mossy house-sized boulders.  Couldn't have had better company on this trip, as I was joined by @mattshifflerphoto & @p.sisto.images , on a quest to photograph synchronous fireflies - but that's a story for another post!

‘The Valley.’ Nothing you’ve seen in books, movies, or otherwise will mentally prepare for your first trip into Yosemite Valley.  To put it in perspective, the waterfall you see here is 1430 ft. tall (and 2425’ total). It’s no wonder this place has been inspiring naturalists, photographers, & adventurers for over a century.

This sunrise last Sunday from Edgewater Park was a stunner, and one of the best I've seen from there!  It's also a pleasant reminder that it's not ALWAYS raining here ;-) I also have this shot in landscape format, and prints are always available (link in bio for pricing).

'Magically Delicious'

While driving back to our campsite one evening at Yosemite National Park, it started pouring...and then hailing.  All the while the sun remained out, and I told my wife to start looking for a rainbow.  Finally, we came around this bend and BOOM!  I wanted to capture that exact scene, but as soon as I walked back up the road, every tourist leaving the park started stopping in the middle of it.  I realized I was tipping them off standing there with my camera, so I stepped off the road behind a tree.  And sure enough, they started flying right past & I got the shot :)

Golden State of mind - Day # 2.

While return to "normal" gas prices and less psychotic driving behavior have been a welcome change, the scenery on an 11-day road trip throughout California will be sorely missed. Without adieu, here is Emerald Bay State Park/Eagle Falls, on the California shore of Lake Tahoe.  On a much more sobering note, since our visit, 35-yr. old Stephanie Williams, mother of two, found her demise at the base of these very falls. She was reaching for a branch when she tumbled to the base of the 150-ft. waterfall, running high from snow pack runoff. These posts are never meant to inspire reckless behavior, or heightened levels of physical awareness/ability - much rather the contrary.  This was shot from a level rock within eye distance of the road above. Know your limits, and assume that Mother Nature's are a bit more ornery 🙏

What's a kid from Ohio to do when they see Lake Tahoe for the first time?  Jump into those 48-degree waters, of course!! This place is every bit as magical as we thought it would be...video in the comments of this morning's weather conditions.  Thanks @_olitchka_ , for the action shots 🙂

Seeing all the familiar symptoms of a great sunset Sat. evening, I threw the kayak on the roof & headed to Lorain Harbor.  What wasn't planned for was the sizable surf pounding the beach where I had planned to launch.  Maybe the launch could be timed, and I could slip between the waves?? 1,2,3, ...and boom - face & boat full of Lake Erie silt & water!

Ultimately, taking the high ground & high-tailing it over to the pier was the right move.  It was ironically calm in the marina's sheltered waters, making for wonderfully preserved reflections.  It felt good to find an angle of Lorain Harbor that hadn't been photographed 1000 times, which was the goal in the first place!  ISO 100, 20-sec. @ f/18, Breakthrough 10-stop ND + 2X CPL
