Getting up a little earlier this morning we got ourselves over to Watkins Glen State Park by 8am anticipating another day of great shooting. And boy were we right on that account. Barely anyone was there and we were able to get up quickly to the places where we started having the crowds yesterday.
My main goal this morning was to get a photograph of Rainbow Falls. Yesterday’s crowds made this spot very challenging and I was unhappy with the photos I made. Today with the early start time there was no one in sight and I was very happy to get the shot below.
We spent about two hours here again today but during the last hour things started ramping up in the park. More and more people came in as we packed up our gear and headed out.
We had to start thinking about heading home so after some lunch we decided to drive straight up to the south coast of Lake Ontario and drive along there to see what we could see. But first we made a short pit stop at Taughannock Falls State Park. The short trail from the parking lot leads past some spectacular scenery finally ending with Taughannock Falls.
It turned out to be an amazing weekend full of waterfalls and beautiful autumn colours. Too bad it went by so quickly but Watkins Glen will be on my list to visit again soon.
