Watkins Glen Study No. 1


Watkins Glen Study No. 1

We hiked Watkins Glen in August and I took my camera along. No tripod, just handheld.  I ended up with a series of ten studies to post, after eliminating the blurry or less inspiring ones.  The gorge is 400 feet high. As you climb, you pass under and over numerous waterfalls along the way.  Watkins Glen State Park is located in Watkins Glen, New York, at the base of Seneca Lake, one of the Finger Lakes, created by glacier erosion.  I hope I captured the power of the water's ability to carve out interesting patterns and abstractions in the rocks.

Thousand Islands Study No. 29

Thousand Islands Study No. 29

My mother-in-law asked me when I returned if I found another little girl on the steps (like my image of Flip Flop Girl ).  Instead I found another little "girl" working hard on a crossword puzzle in the morning sun.

Thousand Islands Study No. 20

Thousand Islands Study No. 20

We went back to Thousands Islands Park over the weekend to help Tom's parents close their cottage so I was able to go out one evening and one morning to collect some new images.
