falls to rapids 1 & 2

this is what we came for! taughannock falls on a cold and misty day; but at least the rain stayed away for the afternoon… two versions to choose from!

on the way

the second fall outing of the year was a revisit to the finger lakes region of western new york state. you may recall that the first getaway to the tobermory, ontario area was met with nasty weather at times and a lackluster autumn colour change. i wish i could say this was better – it was not. the weather was wet and rainy the entire weekend long…

she-qua-ga falls in the village of montour falls was a dud. watkins glen was not much better – at the end of october, the colours had not come close to changing in a meaningful way, but a lot of trees were indeed leafless. that was our first day in the area.

the second day was basically a downpour for hours on end and made touring an impossibility. the third day was a tad better – the rain let up for the afternoon…

the centrepiece of the trip, as it were, was meant to be taughannock falls just outside of ithica, new york. to the extent that we were not rained out, i was able to get some decent photographs of this majestic waterfall and area.

this photograph was taken on the trail toward the falls along the taughannock creek in the taughannock gorge within taughannock falls state park.

beyond the boulder

Beyond The Boulder

the woody point lighthouse in its surroundings on the western shore of the south arm of bonne bay. though a lighthouse was initially erected in 1919, the one that stands today was built in 1959 and used a battery-operated light instead of the previous kerosene (1919 -1923) and acetylene (1923-1959) ones.

boulder on the trail

Boulder On The Trail

my very first excursion in st. john’s, newfoundland was a visit to signal hill national historic site of canada. i spent a few hours there hiking the north head trail from the top (at the parking lot) to north head at the entrance of st. john’s harbour. it was mid afternoon when i got started; so the light was not ideal for photography. the trail affords fantastic sights of the atlantic ocean – thankfully i was not too late to take in the few icebergs dotting the horizon. also great views of fort amherst and the st. john’s city harbour can be seen from various vantage points.

i elected not to do the entire 1.7km trail, but rather returned back to the top from north head, basically the same way i came. i spotted this boulder and knew there was a photograph there somewhere… the structure in the upper left of the frame is the cabot tower.
