Arcadia Valley and Ozarks of Missouri

I had the great fortune of camping the last week of June in the beautiful locale of the Arcadia Valley in Missouri. Anytime I get to go camping, I’m automatically in my happy place, so imagine my excitement to be camping where I was surrounded by beautiful landscapes. As a Photographer, I was overwhelmed with the breathtaking scenery and the amazing opportunities for landscape photography. Every stop I made, I was inspired by “eye candy”. I had to pace myself, remembering that I would have a full week to capture every image my heart desired! My shutter finger was busy, and I was grateful that I carried with me two camera batteries.

If you’ve never been to the Ozark’s Arcadia Valley, I recommend that you go, especially if you enjoy Americana subject matter, and historical landmarks. Even if you’re not a photographer, the imprinted memories in your minds eye will last a lifetime!

I hope to return again someday to capture more images, and perhaps a shoot time in a different season of the year. And the best part is, there are still more locations that I didn’t get to shoot. So the next time, I’ll push a little deeper into the Ozark’s and discover more hidden gems! I can hardly wait, but good things are worth waiting for!

Until the next adventure- Light and Love, Leslie
