Gulf Creek meets Big Brook
A friend of mine went hiking in Fillmore Glen State Park last week and it got me thinking… it is time for a trip to Ithaca so I can explore some of my favorite parks. As a little warm up I went out last evening to Big Brook, which is practically around the corner from my house (country distance terms).
I love the spot where Gulf Creek meets Big Brook. There is a nice little water fall area as well as plenty of spots to play with the water flow. I had a good hour of fun before the mosquitoes chased me away. And that reminded me to get my bug spray for my Ithaca trip.
Normally I would capture this area in landscape mode but I really liked how this portrait view turned out. The action is in the bottom of the picture. There is a dividing line with the fallen tree and then the lush green leaves on top. There are little touches too. Like the green leaf color reflected in the water at the very bottom and the highlights on the right side of the trees from the setting sun.
