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...

Ricketts Glen

I took this shot at Ricketts Glen State Park in Pennsylvania while I was on my cross-country trip. I thought I was going to miss the only opportunity that I had since it was raining but fortunately I didn’t. The rain got a lot lighter and basically stopped when I was hiking this trail. I was glad that it didn’t catch back up since I was on my motorcycle. I had never done this trail, so I didn’t know what to expect. After seeing some pictures I had high hopes. Needless to say, my expectations were more than met. Literally every twenty steps or so were waterfalls. Each one was better than the last. With the clouds overhead, it was a photographers dream come true. This shot was taken with my Nikon D810. I bracketed and merged about 7 photos for this one. Hope you like the results.
