View 191: The Mighty Taughannock Falls

You might detect I am saying this with tongue firmly in cheek.  The summer in upstate New York has been dry and hot.  Water flow through the gorges around the Finger Lakes is very low.  Even Taughannock Falls has very little water falling over the 215 foot (65 meters) drop.

Summer water flow over the Taughannock Falls near Ithaca, New York.

What a difference from the last time I was there back in May, eh?

I was joined last weekend by two Ithaca area bloggers, Barbara of The Aspiring Photographer and Debbie of My Life in CNY, who meet me early in the morning at the Taughannock Falls State Park. We all had a good time getting to know each other better while photographing the beauty of the park.  Thanks, ladies, and I hope we’ll meet up again so you can show me more of the Ithaca area.

    What a mighty … eeeh… drizzle? 😦 Not much of a waterfall, and certainly a big difference to the previous shot you took! Still, beautiful picture 🙂

  2. So much difference in the waterfall and yet these Falls are beautiful in every Season. Just looked at your previous pictures. Each one of them has its own charm. Great pictures, Scott.

    Still a beautiful location this waterfall although there is not so much more water now. And Barbaras and Debbie blogs I had not visited before, interesting to see your various posts about the trip.

    I think it’s a fine waterfall. At least it is higer than what we find here in Denmark. It would be nice to have the sound from the location with the picture.
    It is good to see that you can arrange blogger-meetings in NY. Some of the Danish bloggers met in Copenhagen: http://my2008blog.wordpress.com/2010/12/11/december-11-2/

  8. Hahaha, you don’t know dry & hot! 😉

    • No, we do not know what a Texas hot and dry is like. We’ve gotten a lot of rain since this photo was taken. I hope you get a break in the weather soon and that it doesn’t take a hurricane to do it.

      We need to plan a big blogger meet someday.
