downriver (colour and b&w)

the lower falls trail of letchworth state park essentially begins at the ‘127 steps’ that lead you lower into the genessee river gorge. once at the bottom of the stairway, the trail splits. to the right will take you right to the falls (as per the previous image post: the lower falls) while to the left will take you towards a bridge and the river itself. this is a downriver view at some point along the ‘left’ trail.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.

Weather Beaten Charm

Weather Beaten Charm (B&W)

there are some country roads just south of short hills provincial park in and around fonthill, ontario where the landscape oozes charm. in my travels, i have come across this weather beaten cabin – i fell in love with its setting and waited for the fall colours to arrive before photographing it. here it is at the early onset of those autumn colours.

clouds over the point

Clouds Over The Point

upon first moving to the niagara peninsula, i was flipping through a tour guide and saw a picture of the point abino lighthouse. intrigued by such a lovely structure, i sought to visit it for a chance to photograph it. to my dismay i could not!

it would seem the monument has a contentious existence that remains very much alive today: the lighthouse sits perched on a narrow spit of land on the north shore of lake erie, a few kilometres west of fort erie, ontario. in 1915, construction finaly began after an agreement with local residents (mostly wealthy americans) of the community of point abino was reached. this was private land after all!

fast forward to today and though the town of fort erie has owned it since 2003, it still sits on private land and access is unfortunately quite limited. it can be visited through the summer months through a rather limited schedule – access is not granted throughout the rest of the year.

so, i finally managed to make it out there on a sunday, this past summer. the day seemed to have decent cloud cover to offer suitable lighting. alas, when i got there, by the time i had walked the mile or so to reach the site, the clouds were breaking up… this was one of the first shots i took before the clouds dissipated enough to let that harsh sunlight through.

ride over the whirlpool

Ride Over The Whirlpoolthe whirlpool aero car is an attraction on the canadian side of the niagara river. the cable car rides for about 1 kilometer above the niagara gorge at the naturally-occurring whirlpool (because of the change in the river’s direction). here is the suspended antique cable car photographed in the area’s autumn splendour!

autumn at morningstar

Autumn At Morningstar

morningstar mill in all it’s fall colour splendour! the right-hand building is the grist mill that still produces flour during the summer and early fall months. the red structure on the left represents the sawmill that was once operating on the site. both reflected  on a small pond that is fed by lake gibson, a man-made reservoir that provides water to the city of st. catharines. the water eventually tumbles at decew falls, just beyond the buildings.

standing around

VC1202

i love photographing lone trees – the countryside offers wonderful opportunities to do so. i came across this one near north pelham, ontario as i was exploring the country roads of the niagara region. the cow standing around was a bonus, I suppose… 😉
