Sliver of Light

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

I was driving to my son’s in Albany Sunday morning to help him winterize his new apartment. It is an older house and the colder weather increased the awareness of the drafts within the place. His first attempts by himself were slight unsuccessful. I always had to perform the same tasks around my house so this was an easy assist for me. Plus, he has always been bragging about the places to eat he has found in Albany so I figured my payment could be lunch at one of those places…

The timing of my departure was going to be right at sunrise and I had hoped I would be able to capture something interesting. As I was getting ready to leave I was unsure how the sunrise would unfold as the clouds were making there way across the sky but I did still see a sliver of light along the horizon. I drove to Bellamy Harbor Park and was able to catch a few rays of sunlight before the clouds consumed the sky.

Looking Back

Robert H. Treman State Park

Turning around and looking back into the gorge from the same location as yesterday’s image. The stone bridge spanning the gorge offered great images. It isn’t always the marquee attractions in a location that provide your best results. Remember to enjoy the journey to those attractions as well…

Through the Fallen Leaves

Buttermilk Falls Sate Park

This section of the gorge trail at Buttermilk Falls State Park had been clogged with fallen trees. There were sections of the trunks lodged in the creek after they passed the waterfall. I didn’t like how the arrangement ruined the composition (IMO) and I haven’t photographed this section in a couple of visits. I was quite happy to see everything was back to normal when I walked the trail a few weeks ago. Having the fallen leaves scattered on both sides of the gorge really punctuated the feeling of autumn for me…
