Janet Conn - August Morning on the Ohio River.jpg

This beautiful and serene photo of the Ohio River was taken by Janet Conn from her home by the river.  Janet is a river watcher and nature watcher like none I've ever known.  She captures the moments of mostly overlooked beauty, the flow of the river and seasons, and the views that inspired the imaginations of our first inhabitants and early explorers --- the same views we can still see today.
