Autumn Swirl

Chittenango Falls State Park

It was another questionable day for the weather. Clouds came and went, the sun making itself known throughout and rain, if only a quick sprinkle, ever possible. Still, it was worth a trip to Chittenango Falls State Park. I wasn’t positive if the trees lining the gorge had fully turned to their autumn pallet, but considering how close the park is, it was worth the drive. There was definitely the start of the colors I seek and I’m guessing by next weekend it will be the full blown pallet.

My favorite section of the creek above the main waterfall held more color and I spent quite a lot of time exploring the possible views. I really liked this section which allowed my to fill the background with color while capturing the swirling bubbles below the small ledge waterfall. Capturing the right image involves a lot of patience. It is easy to get the right exposure, timing the pattern of bubbles can be frustrating. This one was probably my sixth or seventh setup of the tripod and the third change of exposure to get the swirl the way I wanted it.
