Old Erie Canal Park
I hadn’t been over to the Old Erie Canal Park during lunch in what seemed like forever. It was time for me to get off my lazy butt during lunch and enjoy the scenery available to me. I typically do not venture far along the canal trail as I can find enough to entertain me right at the aqueduct. I did run into a couple of volunteers who were offering water and an opportunity to help in the expansion of the trail system between Dewitt and Camillus. Considering how much I enjoy the trails as a diversion from work and while I am home, I was more than happy to help out.
After doing my part, I ventured down into Butternut Creek to get some images of the aqueduct. I must have hundreds by now but I never fail to find something new to capture. On this day there was a brilliant reflection in the water. By combining my polarizing filter with the 4-stop ND filter I was able to get a 2.5 second exposure which enhanced the reflection in the moving water. I decided not to fully engage the circular polarizer as doing so would have cut some of the reflection and enhance the view of the creek bed. I wanted the bright reflection!
