3 of the Best Places in Ohio for Photography
1. Honey Run Waterfall
Honey Run Waterfall is one of our area’s best-kept secrets. You’ll find this 25-foot waterfall tucked away in Honey Run Park, a two-acre property filled with hiking trails and peaceful views of the Kokosing River. The best time for photography all depends on your creative bend. Every season offers a new perspective. For example, autumn showcases vibrant foliage and colors, and winter brings about a sparkling frozen waterfall that resembles a looking glass. Let your camera roll with tranquil fishing photos by the river, wildlife viewing, and more.
2. Historic Covered Bridges
If historic landmarks are your specialty, then you need to explore our area’s covered bridges. There are so many places to shoot a series, but if you are a first time visitor, then the Bridge of Dreams is a must. It is the second-largest bridge in the state and dates back to the 1920s. The bridge is part of the Mohican Valley Trail, a foot-traffic trail that was built on an abandoned railroad, spanning the Mohican River.
3. Ohio’s Amish Area
Ohio’s Amish Country is full of fantastic photo opportunities that you can’t find anywhere else. The horses and buggies, the corn husks and fields, and Amish school houses are only the beginning. Farms and farmers markets are also excellent destinations for vibrant photos. If you’re new to the area, we recommend taking a guided tour. Once you’re acquainted with the area, your adventures can transfer beautifully into a story-telling picture series. Remember to find recommendations for guided tours in our complimentary vacation guide.
