Photographing the Magical Waterfalls and Gorges Around Ithica NY

October 30, 2016

Took off on an all-waterfall photo trip last week. Fall colors and fallen leaves, along with cloudy skies, made it a perfect time to explore the magical gorges carved out by glaciers in the Finger Lakes region.

Sun would have blown out the waterfalls and made the shadows in the gorges irremediably black. So the cloudy weather was perfect for gorges and waterfalls. Wearing many layers and down coat in the cold and snow showers, I hiked light given all the climbing up and down through the gorges: one camera, one lens, tripod, ND filters, polarizer, and a bottle of water.

I must have seen over 40 waterfalls in Watkins Glen State Park, Robert Treman State Park, Taughannock State Park along with several other spots around Ithica. Awe-inspiring sights.
