2014 Fall Wanderings – 2

The Finger Lakes region in New York State is truly a landscape photographer’s paradise. We spent an afternoon exploring Enfield Glen, an exceptional gorge in Robert H. Treman State Park. The gorge has multiple waterfalls (some just great cascades) – and the 115 foot Lucifer Falls.  This image is of one of the three tiered waterfalls in the gorge. Each tier has its own set of cascades. Please click on the image to see detail.

Columbus day weekend (Sunday and Monday) we drove to the Finger Lakes region in New York State.  Spent most of the time in and around Ithaca.  Our main objective was to photograph some of the region’s waterfalls with some foliage as a bonus.

Taughannock Falls is located in Ulysses, NY, within  Taughannock State Park.  Noted as the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains with a drop of 215 feet. Niagra Falls is about 170 feet.  The image is from the base of the falls in the gorge.  You need to hike about 45 minutes to get to the base of this waterfall. For the non hiking photographer there is a viewing deck and a parking lot that gives you an elevated view of the falls and the gorge.

Gullfoss – Iceland

_S5A5377-Edit 2

I can never get tired of looking at images from Iceland.  This is an extract of Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall), one of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland and a key stop on the the Golden Circle.  It is a multi tiered waterfall on the river Hvítá. The first is a wide but shallow three step fall and then it drops in two tall stages. The first is about 36 feet and the second about 70 feet.  This image is a small extract of the final drop. Canon 5D Mk II, 70-200 f2.8 at 200 mm, f/10, 0.8 seconds, ISO 250.
