Blue Claw

I took this photograph at Chapman Dam State Park in the Allegheny Forest. When looking for subject matter to photograph, I am drawn to the small things that many times go unnoticed. This area of the spillway isn’t very eye catching at first glance, but beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places. The broken concrete is interspersed with rouge wildflowers and the remains of many a meal enjoyed by the local wildlife. From close vantage points, nature’s detail, even the carcass of a deceased crayfish, holds incredible beauty.
