Solemn Gorge

Watkins Glen State Park

Downstream from the iconic Rainbow Falls is a very picturesque area of the gorge. You can setup on the Central Cascade bridge and compose your image looking up the gorge as if you are in the middle of the river. The high walls, winding river with multiple little waterfalls all add up to a very serene view. At the top of the image, peaking through the trees is the section of Rainbow Falls that is sliding down the gorge walls. I processed this image to add a little more mood than what I photographed as it relays the feeling you get standing on the bridge.
