‘Hunkering Down’ in a Hammock

I’ve been giving stealth camping more and more experience, and overall it has helped me become more in tune with nature and experiencing it.

This particular outing had me leaving the house at 6:44pm on my feet. A couple miles away laid a familiar golf course park with woodland trails and prairie habitat. My initial thoughts were to set up where the trees were of course.

A pleasant summer evening showed as the sun began to set, and disc golfers were out and about no doubt. I tried my best to avoid the pairs and groups as I walked past the meadows around the park, hiking bag packed to sleep tonight.

Finding a spot in the woodland proved tricky at first, as I knew people would be passing through here up until dark, and all the edges of the trail seemed very exposed despite all the green midsummer foliage.

A group of disc golfers, about seven or eight of them were all peering over the edge of the prairie in different spots, clearly in search of a lost disc.

The particular fella closest to me (still over 30 feet away at least) shouted “You haven’t happened to see a pink disc around here have you?” to which I declined any findings and kept walking into the shadows of the woods.

From here, it took a bit of bushwhacking through the thicket to really find any prime spots, and I settled upon a location that nestled me between the disc golf park, a wired fence and the private property of someone’s woodlot.

This was definitely concerning as I was far out of view of any disc golfers, the nearest tee about a football field’s length away through the trees. However as I scouted around was when a truck drove up to the house from the long narrow driveway. Fortunately, they did not seem to notice my presence and encroachment near their land.

With everything setup in regards to the hammock, I felt quite at home here. The cawing of crows ever present from the trees above as the last light faded out for the evening.

I opted for not using the camouflaged netting as previously done which could’ve been risky. For whatever reason, I felt that this would’ve drawn more attention versus not using the net at all. Maybe you can decide how “stealthy” my hammock blends in with the lower canopy.

Combined with my sleep mask and ear plugs setup made for a nice night of sleep. So nice in fact that it might’ve been my best ever. A solid seven hours or so of sleep might I was right at ease.

Having no alarm set and I still woke up at about 7am, just an hour after sunrise. The woodland was still fairly dark as the light began to stretch across the tallest trees around. Those same crows took no time off from cawing once again this early in the morning.

Surviving another night, I packed up everything in about 10 minutes and made the walk home. Mission is accomplished!

The Awful Sting of Rejection

No one likes to be refused an opportunity they yearned for.

Creators and photographers, let’s say artist-types in general, are a very sensitive bunch. We are terribly insecure and quick to please those who may hand us cash or attention, if only because of there may never be another chance.

We tell ourselves that if we don’t grip them in now, our supposed followers or fans will assume we dropped off the face of the earth.

The worst case scenario, they may not even care. Gasp, oh my!

Persistence pays off, like me following the sounds of this Prairie Warbler until it came out in the open of this scrubby habitat.

The famous author Stephen King was known to have all of his rejection letters (dozens upon dozens) thumb tacked to the wall. So many rejections prompted for more thumb tacks to be used over time!

The big names in your industry or profession have their own duds too, their own failures. Others may tend to forget this and see the end result; they made it big and became successful.

The entire paradox is simply that you’ll never know unless if you try.

Take that risk, ask that business owner if they’ll hang up your photographic prints. Free or not, apply for that juried exhibit or festival. The worst that could happen is that they decline your offer.

For me, no time spent out in nature and outdoors is time wasted. Photos or not, there is always something to be had with every experience.

If one of your concerns is that you may be wasting time, let it be known that there is a learning lesson in everything.

If there’s a single takeaway from this short writing piece, let it be this mantra..

A ‘no’ now doesn’t necessarily mean ‘no’ forever.

How have you dealt with rejection in the past? What are some opportunities you took a chance on and they didn’t work out? What lessons did you learn from them?

Hanging a Hammock Overnight

Stealth camping can take you anywhere you want, and that’s the beauty of it.

On this particular summer night, I sought to take a hike into the woodland owned by my former high school. Yes, that’s possibly the peak of my education being put to work.

The bag was packed with the hammock, sleeping bag/pad, and a journal/book to muse over.

I chose this particular area for its lowkey appearance and close proximity to my house. Ideally, no car would be involved and fortunately this is only a 15-minute walk away.

Using a hammock for camping at all is still proving tricky compared to a tent, and here’s some difficulties I’ve had so far.

  1. Location: While being able to pick my own set of trees is nice when stealthing, there is still a challenge in finding ones that are the just right distance and circumference. around.
  2. Warmth/Circulation: The warmth hasn’t been too necessary until colder nights roll in, then maybe an under quilt will be an investment.
  3. Numb Feet: This could be my fault for sitting and slouching in the hammock, maybe a bit more slack in the suspension straps will help alleviate this.

Despite arriving to the woods with a couple of hours to spare, I still had to consider a prime spot to hang the hammock up.

A quick loop around the small forest and I found at least two or three potential spots…

The images above were my first pick, as the sparseness of the area looked promising, unfortunately I felt a little too exposed to the housing developments just beyond these trees.

Loud music was being played through speakers and people attending to their backyard work, however they don’t need to see a twenty-something camping somewhere he shouldn’t be.

The next images above were my second spot to try, as I scouted around for viable trees positioned for a hammock. The problem posed with this section is despite some well-paired trees, I felt to be way too close to the trail, and the houses over the hill possibly had a view of me again.

Finally, third time’s a charm and this was the most hidden and stealthy backdrop so far. As a result, the foliage and tree twigs were scattered everywhere too, however these two trees suited my 150 pound person to suspend in the air.

Everything felt right to set up, even forgoing the rainfly tarp and camouflaged netting this time. A white-tailed deer ate some berries at a safe distance away, as we made eye contact and then carried on with our present tasks.

Somehow I managed to bust my lip open while tying a knot with the straps and my hand slipped. Note to self; don’t punch your jaw if you aren’t expecting it!

The marching band was practicing their upcoming show as instruments and loud speakers blared until dark out in the nearest parking lot. Everyone unaware that I am listening to their every note from the shadows of the trees within.

Using the sleeping pad and having the sleeping bag ready meant I crashed pretty hard and pretty quickly. Bedtime was effectively 9:30pm and stayed that way until 2:20 when my limbs became so numb from the awkward curved position. This was surely no tent.

A few more hours later and daylight began to break. Hunkering down meant getting out of there. I reemerged from the treeline as sunrise light blanketed over patches of the open field, and from here I took off home.

Off in the distance, part of the Cross Country runners were having morning practice, which harkened to my days of conditioning with the team when I was in high school.

For an overnight, I went back to school but for a different reason.

To hunker down and live life to the fullest.

A Selection of Podcasts on Creativity

Podcasts have become a daily method of media consumption, and for good reason.

They allow the end user to multitask or fully focus on just the voices in your ears.

I enjoy them so much so, that I co-created a podcast centered around outdoor photography.

Enough rambling on, here is a shortlist in no particular order of some of my personal favorite podcasts not just on photography, but creativity and art in general.

Note: Each title is a clickable link to their respective Podcast Addict page, which is my preferred podcast app of choice. Most, if not all of these podcasts are available on the big name streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Podcasts, etc.

Deep Natter

This podcast is an absolute joy to listen to as the episodes are typically 45-55 minutes in length and jam-packed full of wisdom and thoughtful conversation. Jeffrey Saddoris and Sean Tucker are both witty and amusing to hear their banter to, yet know when to shut that off for some serious topics centered around ‘creativity and making.’ I binge-listened to all the episodes in less than two weeks, if that counts for anything of a recommendation.

The Dave Morrow Show

Dave Morrow is a photography whose work I found from his YouTube channel, and someone whose philosophies on life and creativity I find truly inspiring. His podcast features very short tidbits on aspects of business, backpacking, landscape photography and more. One of the most underrated in the photography world today.

Creative Banter

Cody Schultz and Ben Horne team up in this uniquely film-focused however refreshing podcast. These two creatives discuss their approaches to photography and take on a more philosophical approach at large with their imagery. This one is well worth the listen.

The Chase Jarvis LIVE Show

Probably the most popular example here is Chase Jarvis, having started as an action sports photographer and moved into creative entrepreneurship such as founding CreativeLive. This podcast features many talks by Chase himself and interviews with top creatives in the industry of art, design and business.

Artists for Joy

This special show is all about finding the joy to create the art you did in the first place and does a great with it through guided meditations and other spoken word passages.

Stealth Camping in a Hammock

Stealth camping is a questionable activity to debate, and one I’ve only done once before this.

The definition of it is two-fold; one is in camping in a manner not to be seen, but also one in which you are camping in places not normally suited for such activities.

My personal philosophy on the topic is that of which practicing Leave No Trace (LNT) as much as possible and without disturbing the environment.

One could also argue that it is simply illegal in most countries and jurisdictions, and is unfair to those who properly register and pay for an actual campsite.

Also, in the two years since I’ve last hunkered down, a lot of Steve Wallis videos have been binged.

Needless to say, but I was ready to get back out there.

My very first stealth camping was turned into this video as I took some images during the entire trip to a local nature reserve.

I had acquired some tips from Steve’s videos and a list of very local parks and greenspaces to try stealthing some more.

Photography was definitely not on my mind with this particular trip, as it was a small patch of woodland a few minutes walk from my house. I simply wanted to set up at dusk, hunker down and journal or read a book till shuteye.

My main goal besides trying stealth camping again was also to practice setting up the hammock.

For anyone curious, my hammock is an ENO JungleLink system. This is the best bundle you can afford for $200 dollars, as it includes a bug net, the straps and a rain fly tarp all for that price. The actual hammock itself is spacious enough for two individuals if you get lonely at night.

In true stealth camp fashion, I brought along some camouflaged netting to throw over the nearby short trail to access my special spot.

While it may look like from the succeeding images that I am conspicuously placed, this a dead-end trail less than twenty feet from the woodland clearing. The hammock is placed just above a dried up creekbed.

The darker it got in the evening, the better chances of this camouflaged net began working more in my favor as the shadows of the trees covered me.

While everything may have seemed rosy up until this point, several lessons were learned pretty quickly…

  1. Despite previously checking the forecast before heading out, rain showers came in after midnight. I sought to keep the rainfly stowed away in my bag instead of preparing it for this surprise.
  2. Despite having this particular hammock model for over six months now, I never tried setting it up before this trip, with only about an hour before sunset pressuring me slightly.
  3. Despite being midsummer in temperature, I went to bed without any sort of sleeping pad or bag. The hammock alone was quite comfortable, but that added degree of comfort/warmth would’ve helped immensely.
  4. Despite previous attempts at sleeping outside with or without audiobooks/podcasts/music/earplugs in and eyemask on, I still can’t stand the idea of something always watching me. There’s the added drawback of being a super light sleeper as well.

After being pelted on with rain for longer than I’d like to admit, I “attempted” to throw on the rainfly while in the dark of night. A few more minutes of wrestling with the tarp then turned into frustration and I stuffed all the wet gear into my pack, turned and walked home.

The time was 4am, and I was drenched with only an hour at most of sleep to show for it.

This entire story may seem like I have nothing to show for it, but these lessons I will carry into the next stealth camping adventure.

No doubt that my stubborn attitude will mean I do this again very soon.

Slowing Down & Starting Over

Hello, it’s been a while, hasn’t it?

To return to this blog has been something of a burning desire lately. I really fell off the wagon with it starting the year as video work took over for a bit, gallery exhibitions took over my life to prepare for, a week-long photo trip preoccupied my planning and so much other personal life mumbo jumbo.

An abstractive shot of some branches poking out of the lake water and casting reflections.

It’s amazing to think that 2022 is already halfway over, and I’ve been working so hard at things that it’s flown over my head to really sit down and ponder everything.

To digest everything and to really appreciate all the good things going for me.

I’ve recently taken a step back again from social media, not an overnight cold-turkey approach but to definitely keep it at arms length and lessen my usage.

In order to fill up some of that time, I want to dedicate more intention and focus towards this blog and to journal or write more consistently again as I once did.

To complete a blog entry like this; a complete collection of thoughts or words accompanied with photos that complement the writing. A quick social media post that most will flick through doesn’t even compare.

I want to work on things that will challenge me, such as creating a YouTube video or recording a podcast episode.

This idea of ‘slowing down’ in order to begin ‘starting over’ again is one that is so desperately needed I think. Just as the seasons in nature change, swell and renew during the entire year.

I have some other plans in order to keep with this ‘stillness’ theme, including a focus more on the gallery exhibitions and local art buyers, trying out shooting some more film with experience and some extended backpacking trips where the solitude of nature fulfills me.

Shooting panoramas are oft-forgotten by me, but when I remember to try them, the results can be very interesting.

Plenty of newer work has been produced and I look forward to sharing that in the coming weeks and months.

If you’re reading this and previously were following my writings and travels, thank you for sticking around. Let’s do this!

Discovering Hocking Hills (Day 3)

This is it! The third and final day from my first and definitely not last Hocking Hills photography trip.

By this point, my in-the-field workflow had been streamlined. Only carrying a tripod, the camera and 16-35mm, my bag was stowed away in the car most of the day. Boots were replaced with trail runners and the routes I took to get to specific spots became all too familiar.

This last day was the focus on some unplanned locations, such as my morning spent at Rockbridge State Nature Preserve. Later in the day is where I wandered (emphasis) through Hocking State Forest. This section of mature woodland was utterly quiet and awe-inspiring even in the spotty afternoon light.

The tail end of the day and entire trip was a hike towards Whispering Cave followed by Ash Cave, and some miles put in on the Buckeye Trail northwards towards the Cedar Falls trailhead. Read on to hear my thoughts down to the page and overall feelings on this entire experience…

“9/28/2021: I’ve never quite felt peace like this. Truly the closest I’ve been to freedom and everything along with it. The fresh pines and ferns were saturated from last night’s rain. The moisture and all that air conjured up a smell like none other. The quiet stillness in the air as a distant Blue Jay calls out and the trickle of water from Twin Falls off the cliff overhang.

The people here are very friendly and easygoing, whether running an all-terrain vehicle through the state forest or a boy giving me a fist bump when following me up on the shots. People are so accommodating to get out of my compositions even when they aren’t bothering it at all. “It’s hard not to get great images with a stunning backdrop as this one.” As I remarked to a passerby on the trail.

Departing one last time from the top of the state park area at Old Man’s Cave’s busy parking lot. Now I was going to the bottommost portion of Ash Cave. I arrived with just under two hours of daylight at the largest “cave” system in the region (actually just a cliff overhang, but it’s a trend to misname every popular landmark here.)

The trail is like a living, breathing animal and I worry about the future (unless it is here now) when nature is seen as one big amusement park. Everything may be overrun with footsteps and litter.

At first I was apprehensive on my way to Hocking Hills. I now see its’ popularity is well deserved, and the hype is mostly understood. You rocked, Hocking, and thanks for the memories (and photos of course too.)

With this trip now behind me, I am now most looking forward to taking a shower.”

Everything about this trip restored my creative juices and gave me a newfound motivation to travel outside my familiar and local patches.

In such a way, I wouldn’t change a thing with how the entire trip went. All of it needed to happen the way it did, and it left room for more exploration. Another trip is in order to explore more of Hocking State Forest and scenic spots such as Airplane Rock!

As always, I appreciate you reading this blog and sticking through the story and adventure with me. This concludes my 2021 photography trip to Hocking Hills, and I will see you next year.

Discovering Hocking Hills (Day 2)

For my second day at Hocking Hills, I set out at sunrise to photograph the Rock House followed by a midday visit to Cantwell Cliffs and evening visit to Conkles Hollow.

Being more settled into the landscape and my overall trip allowed me to focus more on the photography and crafting more images.

“9/27/21: The second day started out with a hike around Rock House with a friend. This cave being the only true cave in the Hocking region. My initial impressions are that this particular spot might be my favorite so far. The photographic potential seems boundless here with late mornings still in shade, and perhaps late evenings totally glossed in “God Rays.” So much spectacle here even as countless Rock Pigeons were cooing from within.

The Cantwell Cliffs offered even more breathtaking views of “caves” within the region as well as some dizzying heights above the gorge rim trail. The 2pm sunlight was much too harsh and direct for any practical photography by my standards.

However I returned by late evening to settle the score with this particular location. The pre-scouting helped out immensely and allowed me to move quickly despite the waning daylight. In between these two visits was the longest hike of the day, several hours at Conkles Hollow.

The upper gorge rim trail proved to be rugged and expansive with views from the rock outcroppings to high above the treeline. The best part for me was unintentionally last as I hiked the much shorter and flatter lower gorge trail.

The photographic opportunities were endless down here as I traversed through the hollow and out back to the waterfall site, despite being just a trickle then. The looming and almost serene (ominous?) sandstone took me by surprise as if towering over me like skyscrapers. I found lots of success in this particular location along with many future compositions such as the rim gorge overlooks.

It seems as though the reliance on the “bigger” landmarks and wider focal lengths are a stylistic shift due to my environment. For the time being, I am seeking all of the main attractions of the state park and less of the “quieter” moments.

Everything has to be so big and grand on a massive and photographic scale as I run and gun from one big section to the next. Trying my best to beat the crowds of people despite being the same really; just a tourist hiding behind a camera instead.

Between the crowds and droves of people in some spots, the one-way trails to certain areas and the harsh lighting. Many factors were trying to pull me away from some proper camera time.

Here I was halfway through my trip and the environment surrounding me was influencing the photography I was doing. This awareness to the change actually allowed me to fully embrace it more than if in denial or ignorance of it.

Thanks for reading about this story thus far, and stay tuned for part three as the final conclusion to my trip to Hocking Hills.

Until then,

Discovering Hocking Hills (Day 1)

For my very first day on the trails at Hocking Hills, I end up photographing Cedar Falls at morning.

Later in the morning and afternoon is where I pre-scouted the trails around the state park, made a stop in the wonderful Visitor Center, and photographed the Upper and Lower Falls, as well as Old Man’s Cave.

Here is the first journal excerpt from my first two nights and day out photographing under the stars and hiking around the state park.

*Page breaks and certain sentences edited for structure and clarity.*

“9/25/21 & 9/26/21: First trip to the Hocking Hills region and it seems to be everything I’d imagine. Both good and not as good. The sorta eh is just how much crowds this one place can draw in. Midday of the weekend is a spell for disaster when it comes to truly focusing and being with the flow state of mind.

Nonetheless, I was persistent in nailing down compositions for several (or all?) of the main state park waterfalls in the morning (Cedar Falls) and the evening (Upper and Lower Falls of Old Man’s Cave.) I then got a couple of compositions of the aforementioned cave itself.

The crowds thinned out almost completely by the time the Golden Hour moved in. This meant I had the entire one-way trail to myself!

Off-topic but this three-day trip has already taught me how easy it is to be self-sustainable despite having to pack out all my trash. It really puts into perspective how we must carry the weight of all the waste and refuse when ‘out there.’ Not only that but just how much can one person conjure up too. Now think about that single person to the entire humanity on the planet.

Even after consolidating all my refuse, it still seems like so much food and other miscellaneous packaging from just three days total.”

As you can see, my initial frustrations became very apparent as the state park portion of the area was very crowded. However no one was to blame but myself for being there during the middle of a Sunday.

Some slight arrogance shone through (in a Chris McCandless way) where I seem to be able to take on this self-sustaining traveling thing a lot more. In hindsight this would be more true if I cooked or practiced bushcraft out in the field, etc.

The second half of this writing also served as an “aside” to where my journal entry was going, almost to show my excited but scatterbrained mindset from finally being at the location for over 24 hours.

Anyways, this wraps up the first journal entry from my in-the-moment reactions to this state park and region.

If you’ve ever been here before, let me know what your initial or even later impressions were of your experiences here!

Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 and happy hiking!

Discovering Hocking Hills (Day 0)

The trip began weeks before I ever set foot on the trails. It began with an idea to hike the entirety of Hocking Hills State Park and the surrounding areas of the region.

I had to pack and evaluate what was truly essential when living out of my car for three days straight, as I wanted to save money on lodging and be as self-sufficient as possible.

This was not my first camping trip and so I was no stranger to the setup, however this provided more layers for colder mornings and enough for several days.

Packing up all the clothes into compression stuff sacks, folding and rolling to save space where I can.

A 7-gallon water jug that stays in the vehicle as the reserve when smaller water bottles are empty.

I took a trip to Great Miami Outfitters in Centerville, Ohio to stock up on food. However my budget was thrown out the metaphorical window upon seeing new gear to add to the trip such as quick-dry pack towels.

All of this was to prepare for a journey that would really invigorate my photography and fancy my love for the outdoors. The particular location was one that many hikers and photographer adored as being picturesque and overall stunning.

With the fairy lights installed to the car interior, everything else was on track for hitting the open road!

Nothing was gonna stop me now.

Clairvoyance: Abstracts in Nature

There is a very niche alternative form of photography referred to as ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photography.

ICM has become one of my favorite creative expressions over the years as I do them more.

This blurring technique has even reached into my gallery exhibitions and festivals as I’ve ordered some wrapped canvas prints of the abstractions.

The technique is achieved by simply moving the camera around as the camera takes the exposure. A shutter speed of a second or two is just enough to satisfy the result.

A very very small aperture helps everything (nothing?) in focus, and the ISO is as easy as setting to ‘Auto.’

I would highly suggest that any outdoor photographer gives this technique a try, you may just become obsessed with them like I have!
