Inspiration Point, Letchworth State Park

Letchworth State Park is big! The park is roughly 16 miles long. There are numerous areas to explore. Typically I like to be able to get close to the waterfalls but you can not deny the view from Inspiration Point. It is a spot along the gorge wall where you are looking up the Genesee River at Middle and Upper Falls. It is a beautiful scene. I am usually in the park very early for the morning light but one of these days I will have to capture this area at sunset.

Harambe, Africa, Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World

When you are all set on the attractions you want to ride, the extra magic hour in the morning allows for uninterrupted exploring around the Animal Kingdom. While everyone else was racing to Flight of the Avatar or Expedition Everest, I was looking at the details created for Harambe village. It was great to take my time and capture images without feeling like I was in the way of other guests. My images in this area always feel like I should process them with a vintage look… what do you think?

…dance like nobody’s watchin’

West Canada Creek

You’ve got to sing like you don’t need the money
Love like you’ll never get hurt
You’ve got to dance like nobody’s watchin’
It’s gotta come from the heart if you want it to work.

“Come from the Heart” – composed by Susanna Clark and Richard Leigh

WDW in B&W – WBW19
Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World

As soon as you enter the Magic Kingdom, you find yourself at the turn of the twentieth century on Main Street U.S.A. One of my favorite first stops is the train station. From the second floor I can see down Main Street to the castle. It is also a great people watching location. I like to explore the station itself as I can always find interesting details to photograph. I really like the curved stairs leading up to the second floor. I know I have photographed this view before but I do not think I have processed it. It felt right to convert this one to B&W…

New Bridge

Upper Falls, Letchworth State Park

For today’s post I am back at Letchworth State Park. The bridge over Upper Falls has been replaced and surprisingly, it looks pretty good for a man-made intrusion. You can see the old bridge at this post. With the amount of water in the Genesee river, the mist rising up from the falls created a challenge to keep the front of the lens clear. On the plus side it kept a lot of people from getting too close which gave me plenty of room to setup the tripod… 🙂
