Cascadilla Gorge in Autumn

The first panorama was taken in Cascadilla Gorge in the autumn. The gorge is so narrow that people seldom look up to see the cliff that was created by that rather small creek. The power of water is humbling. I've taken photographs of this cascade waterfall many times and each version reveals a delightful new aspect of the scene. Despite the fact that this is a shortcut for Cornell students, I often find myself alone and can savor the quiet peacefulness of this shady spot.

Taughannock Falls - Midsummer


Taughannock Falls faces east by northeast. Added to this fact is the presence of the cliffs that have been formed by the erosion of the waterfall and the winter freezes. These cliffs slope over the bowl-shaped canyon and cast a shadow across the waterfall, which already faces away from the sun's path. The combined forces of these factors severely limits the time when the sun actually shines on the falling water. To get this photograph, I camped out all day waiting for the exact moment to take my shots. Luckily, I had a sunny day. What are the chances of that in this area? My obstinence paid off and I used my 10 minutes to good effect.

Taughannock Reflection


Sometimes the "photograph" is not in the most expected place. It was a lovely sunny day, with a fair number of cameras pointed noisily at Taughannock Falls recording each drop of water flowing through the narrow gap above. As usual, I was hoping for a clear, unpeopled shot. While waiting, I wandered down to the stream below the bridge and, looking down stream, saw this beautiful reflection, unnoticed by all the others. Working as fast as i could, I caught this moment of quiet reflection.

Taughannock - Autumn Sparks


Many of the photographs you have seen of Taughannock Falls in the autumn show a wonderful dispaly of firey Sugar Maples in high color framing the waterfall. The scenes are truely lovely, but aren't quite accurate. The photographer has used a filter or some other enhancing device. This is fine. They want to present a beautiful picture, and because there isn't a sugarbush at the Overlook, they interpret one. There really are Sugar Maples on the cliff that crowns the falls, though, and my favorite time is when there are just sparks of color to contrast with the dominant green of late summer.

Cliff-Side Path


One of my favorite places is this stone trail that leads through woods, crosses and recrosses a large stream and snakes along the side of this sheer cliff. In late autumn the hiker can often be out of sight and sound of any other person. While walking upstream one comes across a number of waterfalls, large and small - some half hidden by foliage.
