    I'm going to be in the area Sunday - Wednesday. Any good photo opportunities for me? I'll be there on business, looking for ways to pass time in the evening.
     
  2. Travel a little south of Cleveland to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It isn't Yellowstone, but there's some nice areas. Check out the Beaver Marsh near the Ira Road Trail Head: birds, heron, and macro. Blue Hen Falls is a small falls, but easy to get to and photograph. Brandywine Falls is much larger. (also easy to get to)
    The Cleveland MetroParks system that surrounds the county is a very nice park system. Some of my more favorite parks are North Chagrin, South Chagrin, and Bedford Reservation.
    If you're interested in lighthouses: In Vermillion, west of Cleveland there is a nice museum and a small rebuilt lighthouse. About 30 miles east of Cleveland in Fairport Harbor is a great looking lighthouse on land. On a "break wall" is the steel light house that replaced the older one.
    I don't photograph the city of Cleveland much, so I can't really help much about the city itself.

    Thanks for the tips. Heading down today. I'll be very close to South Chagrin, so that may be an easy option.
