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.

Cascade's Approach (B&W)

the cavern cascade is one of the more prominent features along glen creek and the gorge trail in watkins glen state park. here we are a little further along the trail, from the main entrance, approaching it. though not yet entirely visible, you can make the cascade out just to the right of the steps at the rear of the frame.

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.

upper falls autumn

Upper Falls Autumn

i failed to post this image when i posted the other ball’s falls photographs in the ‘waterscapes’ gallery earlier this year. so… here we have an autumn view of the upper falls at ball’s falls conservation area in the niagara peninsula of southern ontario.

autumn falls 1 & 2

VC1604

VC1594

invariably as one drives along the queen elizabeth way (qew) towards niagara falls in southern ontario, road signs indicating ball’s falls conservation area can be seen. now living in st. catharines, i finally had a chance to visit the area… the twenty mile creek flows through and plummets over both the upper falls and the lower falls – the latter photographed here from two vantage points across the creek from each other in all its autumn splendour.

ball’s falls, it turns out, is actually a hamlet “… lovingly maintained to its early mid 19th century industrial … atmosphere featuring the original ball family home, an operating flour mill, a lime kiln, a church, black smith shop, carriage shed and more.” – niagara peninsula conservation authority
