More from The Glen

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.

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.

  6. You have got some beautiful pictures and perspective, Scott. The stone bridge shows a very interesting kind of structure, I like the fern too. The first picture is spectacular, like a giant sculpture preserving the cascade and letting it fall down along winding ways. I simply love this series of images.
