Watkins Glen

I took this photo while hiking the Gorge Trail in Watkins Glen State Park in New York. Other than Ricketts Glen, this was probably the most scenic waterfall trail I have hiked. The Gorge Trail was fairly short considering it was only about 1-2 miles long and it was a really easy hike. This spot is called Rainbow Falls and is located almost dead center on the Gorge Trail. I did this hike on a weekday and lucked out considering there were only a handful of other people. The downside was how sunny it was. I usually like cloudy weather for waterfall shots but I was able to manage by using some new Photoshop techniques I learned off Phlearn. I took this shot with my Nikon D810 mounted on my Manfrotto Befree tripod. Hope you like the results. Please follow and like...

Grand Canyon

I took this shot at the Grand Canyon during my cross-country trip. The Grand Canyon always seems pretty massive in photos but until visiting, I was never able to fully appreciate it. This was my first time visiting the Grand Canyon. I didn’t know when I would be back so I took as many pictures as possible and stayed until sunset. I took this shot as the sun was setting. Usually I will look towards the sun to get the colors of the clouds near it, but the colors here were better on the canyon walls. Most of the gated tourist spots didn’t have the views I liked, but this spot wasn’t too far off the walking path. I took this shot with my Nikon D810, and I had it mounted on my manfrotto befree tripod. I got this tripod specifically for this trip and it worked great. It barely took up any space and it was sturdy enough to hold up my D810 with a battery grip and a wide angle lens. I processed one image for this photo. Hope you like the results.
