Mist on the Water

Upper Falls, Letchworth State Park

I traveled back home this past weekend to help my mom. Originally it was the weekend I was to meet my daughter at my Mom’s before her last semester at school became too busy. We combined the too agendas.

She came up from West Virginia University and I drove out from Rome. I was able to help my Mom on Friday and then the three of us spent the weekend together. I was also able to get a few images around my hometown.

Late Saturday I decided I would take off early in the morning to catch the sunrise at Letchworth State Park. By early, I mean I left at 3:30am. It is almost a to hour drive to the Castile entrance and I wanted to be able to capture the blue hour with sunrise occurring at 6:30am.

Without a cloud in the sky the actual sunrise was a little boring (clouds add needed drama). I captured a few good images but still need to process them. I managed to stop at the three main falls along the Genesee river although the trail to the foot bridge near Lower Falls was closed. I really liked this image of Upper Falls…

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.
