Letchworth State Park, Day 2
I woke up at 6:30AM, late, but plenty of time to get some early photos of the falls, however I had a splitting headache so I took a couple of aspirins & went back to sleep. I dragged myself out of bed at 9:00 & made a run to the Perry Market for some coffee. I'd have made it in the trailer, but I left my cup at the Escape rally in Niagara Falls, and even though it was a favorite, decided not to go back for it. I did pick up a mug for tomorrow.
After that it was back to the lower falls for some photos. It is/was a cloudy day, great for photos of the falls. Too much sun & the highlights on the water are so far beyond the surrounding rocks that without HDR techniques, which I'm not all that fond of, there is too much dynamic range for a good photo. There is a bit of the Fall colors although I'm probably about two weeks early for the full effect. Maybe I'll be able to stop back! As usual, there are more photos on my Lakeshore Images page for today.
After that it was on to the middle & upper falls. The upper falls has a railroad trestle just above it. Although very impressive (before it burned & was replaced with steel supports, it was the highest & longest wooden trestle in the US), it tends to get in the way of photos of the falls. I also took a few of the middle falls, located just behind the inn, and Wolf Creek.
After that it was back to the trailer to post these & spend some time relaxing.
Until Tomorrow! (That's a familiar ending that I hope to keep doing!)
