Picturing Kentucky

photographer and videographer Photographer James Archambeault

Lexington’s James Archambeault knocked about in various jobs—social work, the Peace Corps, writing for United Press International—before he found his true calling. Now he’s a well-known landscape photographer whose mission is to document Kentucky’s natural beauty. In this segment, Kentucky Life accompanies Archambeault as he finds some stunning examples among the autumn colors of the Red River Gorge.

Archambeault’s Kentucky scenes grace several coffee-table books and calendars that are annual best-sellers in the Bluegrass State. His photographs have also appeared in National Geographic, Architectural Digest, and books published by Time-Life and the Smithsonian.

In the photo, two shooters face off as Archambeault (left) and KET videographer Gale Worth check out each other’s light.

This profile of Archambeault is also part of Kentucky Life Program 717.

Mighty Waters

Cumberland Falls

Each year tens of thousands of tourists come to see Cumberland Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the Southeast. With a 60-foot drop, a flow that’s been recorded at several hundred thousand gallons per second, and the occasional “moonbow” reflected off the water on full-moon nights, it’s definitely a sight worth seeing. But hidden within the state park are two smaller falls that reward those who hike a little farther off the beaten track: Dogslaughter and Eagle.

The park itself dates back to the 1930s, when private funders bought the land around Cumberland Falls and donated it to the state to prevent industrialization of the area. Visit while you can, though: In a few million years, the park will probably have to be moved as Cumberland Falls continues its upstream march along the river. Geologists believe the original site of the falls was in Pulaski County near Burnside, about 10 miles from the current location.

To reach Cumberland Falls State Resort Park, take I-75 south to U.S. 25 W to KY 90.

Sweet Success

Sweet Tooth Candies

As proprietor of Sweet Tooth Candies and Famous Fine French Confections in Newport, Bob Schneider has been making products in good taste for more than 35 years. And the recipes and techniques used at this family-owned corner candy shop go back even farther, to traditional European methods. The selections range from standbys like fudge and turtles (or “pecan royales”) to the Empress Eugenie assortment of dark-chocolate truffles, meltaways, opera creams, and other temptations.
