I looked for different angles and views of the magnificence of the Watkins Glen State Park Gorge than I did last year. Let’s see what I got.
From this angle, the water flow plays peekaboo as it falls through the Central Cascade on the Gorge trail in Watkins Glen State Park.

Above the Central Cascade is a stone bridge which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930′s.

I pulled out the tripod and 3-stop Neutral Density filter for this long exposure of the water feathering down Rainbow Falls in the gorge.

I tended towards the close in for most of the day. On the way back down, I changed to the wide views like this waterfall surrounded by the stone it cut through over the millennia.
