The End of Day

Delta Lake State Park

Sunday morning started out well as I was able to walk over to the river from my apartment and grab a few images of the sunrise. It was about using the morning light as it lit a scene rather than include the sun in the image. The rest of the day was about getting some of the chores completed that had been pushed to the side all week long. By the time the sun was beginning to set I was ready for more photography.

I drove the short distance to “old faithful”, Delta Lake State Park, to explore and see what caught my eye. The beach was still populated by a lot of people so I walked up to the picnic area above the beach. I was able to capture the sun as it began it’s descent below the horizon. Composing through the trees allowed me to use the branches as a natural frame. There was a slight haze in the air which dulled the sun enough so I could captured it without blowing the highlights. I also was able to get a few starbursts of light off the sun.

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.

Pot of Gold?

Watkins Glen State Park

I’m sticking with the pictures from my excursion to Watkins Glen State Park for today’s post. I found this rainbow upstream from the actual Rainbow Falls section of the gorge. I think the whole park is the pot of gold the rainbow is point toward…

Let It Fall

Watkins Glen State Park

I’m going to stick with the images I captured at Watkins Glen recently. Here is a different view of Rainbow Falls. This isn’t the classic take on this section of the gorge but a more personal look at the stone bridge as you look through the falls coming down the side of the gorge. I was trying to show how wet you can get when the water is really flowing…
