I have been fortunate enough to visit Watkins Glen in upstate New York a handful of times. Because I have been to Watkins Glen many times, I was used to getting the same shots over and over. Most of my images of the gorge are using a wide-angle lens where I was able to capture the waterfalls as well as the towering walls of the glen. This time I was hoping to find something new, so I brought my 70-200MM to capture a more intimate shot of the waterfalls. I was drawn to the waterfall below because of the interesting details. Specifically, I liked the angles of the rock formation and the beautiful lines created by the way the water flows over the different levels of rock. I was only able to visit this time for about an hour, so I am looking forward to my next visit where I will continue to try and find more up close and detailed shots of waterfalls.
Taken with: NIKON D800, 70-200MM @ 14mm, f18, 2 seconds
