This is More My Comfort Zone
The GINORMOUS falls of Letchworth (Upper, Middle, and Lower) really kind of threw me for a loop I think. While I kind of think of Ithaca, NY as the waterfall capital of New York State we have nothing like this around here. Even though I’d done my research I was still unprepared for waterfalls of this magnitude.
However, Letchworth is about so much more than these three BIG waterfalls. It’s a 17 mile gorge with a lot to see – including several waterfalls from tributaries draining into the Genesee River (the main river running the length of the park). And as it turns out I was able to see some of these waterfalls that are often dried up to a trickle or less. So I consider myself fortunate in that regard.
These shots were all taken our first day at Letchworth. I’m looking forward to processing the shots taken two days later when a lot of the mud was gone and the falls, while still huge, were at least white and more photogenic!
