Photographer's Note

Taken at Cave Run Lake in Salt Lick, Kentucky. This is one of my favorite spots to take pictures from. I really like the clouds that day and I though making the photo black and white really made the picture better. Read below for history of Cave Run Lake.

A focal point of the Cumberland District is Cave Run Lake, an 8,270-acre lake nestled in the beautiful mountains of eastern Kentucky. Built for flood protection by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Louisville District) this lake provides flood protection to the lower Licking River valley. In addition to flood control, Cave Run Lake supplies water to area communities, improves water flow conditions on the Licking River, and offers habitat for many species of fish and wildlife. Lake visitors will find many opportunities for relaxation and fun. Boating, camping, fishing, hiking, hunting, wildlife viewing, and visiting historical sites are a few of the many activities our visitors enjoy. Check out the Corps of Engineers website.
