Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskill Mountains

Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskill Mountains Park of New York state.
Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskill Mountains near Catskill, New York. This waterfall is right off of Route 23A between Catskill and Hunter Mountain. There is a parking area nearby and you walk down to these falls along the road. Not the safest trek but manageable.

The water is brown from runoff from an overnight rain and mudslides.  A quarter mile down the road from here is a temporary traffic light for a one lane stretch where half the road has caved in. All effects from Hurricane Irene in late August.

  3. Great shot! I think the brown water adds interest. Did you try one with slow shutter speed, too?

    Yes, the muddy water looks beautiful at the bottom. I am wondering if you somehow edit that in Photoshop to make it stand out like that?

    The water looks brown?! I’d use one of the following for such a beautiful color: terra-cotta, apricot, tea. Or better yet: apple cider.
