View 384: Taughannock Falls 2016


Taughannock Falls State Park on the first day of Autumn near Ithaca, New York on Friday, September 23, 2016.
Nikon D750/16-35VR, 1/125s, f/16, ISO 4000, EV -1.0, 16mm Focal Length, Macphun Intenisfy CK.

I have seen Taughannock Falls in Taughannock Falls State Park near Ithaca, New York in all kinds of weather and at various seasons over the last seven years. I have never seen it like I did last weekend. There was barely any water falling. In fact, it was more like trickling down the gorge. The deep plunge pool was the only thing indicating what is normally a large amount of water flowing.

The Finger Lakes region of New York state has had drought conditions for most of the summer which has affected the mightiest of the region’s waterfalls as well as all the others. I was just amazed at the lack of flow.

I processed this photo using Macphun’s Intensify CK which pulled out all the details in the gorge’s rock surfaces and helped to control the bright sky at the top of the waterfall.

  2. Hello Scott ! I remember this very image in the past years on your blog. How different it looked ! Our glaciers are in trouble too, melting away too rapidly. Weather, climate are definitely changing… Still love the picture though 🙂
