  • Title: Petit Jean Mountain State Park - Cedar Falls
  • State/Province/Region: Arkansas
  • Country: United States

Then head west 12 miles on Hwy 154 to the park; OR, take Hwy 7 off I-40 (south), OR, off I-30 (north) to Centerville, then east 16 miles on Hwy 154 to the park; OR, take Hwy 155 from Hwy 10 at Casa.

    I like the realism of your image. So many now are not realistic. The composition is great and just the right amount of post processing. Beautiful.

    Thank you kindly Laura! I'm sorry for not responding sooner, as it's hard to get to a computer right now. I always enjoy the Spring with wonderful colors. I look forward to sharing some new Spring...

    Holly Molly that is just beautiful. That needs to be on the cover of OP magazine. Probably the most awesome image I have seen on here to date.
