Rainbow Falls And Stone Bridge
Photograph - Photograph
Believe it or not, this is not a fantasy image, created in a computer. This is a real photograph of a very real place! This is Rainbow Falls, in Watkins Glen State Park, located in upstate New York at the lower end of Seneca Lake. It is one of the most unbelievable places I have ever seen! I thank God and NY State for this most beautiful place in the USA!
Lush green ground vegetation and beautiful trees punctuate the enormous rock cliffs and the numerous waterfalls. Almost every surface in this section of the glen is covered in thick moss, green vines and ferns. This creates an amazing green glow that must be seen to be believed! All of your senses are treated to wonderful stimulations here. The sweet aroma of nature is ever present. The nearly constant sound of flowing water is like natures music that accompanies you throughout your entire hike in the gorge.
This photograph was captured with a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens on a Canon EOS 10D DSLR body. The aperture was f/4, shutter speed 1/15th sec at 40mm focal length. The camera & Lens were mounted on a Manfrotto tripod with a Manfrotto 222 joystick ball head. A remote shutter release was used to minimize movement. No flash.
Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
