A place to discuss waterfalls. Including the parks that house them and the hikes to get to them.
I'm surprised this park hasn't been mentioned yet. It's a lovely walk down the trail to the base of the falls.
Also if you go north on rte 30 towards North Blenheim there is a little waterfall on the left side of the road. I'm not sure if you can get to the base or not. I just quickly shot it from the road.
That's really beautiful, gardengirl13! (As are all of your waterfall photos!) Truth is, I don't think we have more than a small handful of active members in your area....so thanks for posting and keep 'em coming!
Sweet thanks for sharing!
Nice shot! I've been there a few times, but never could get a shot I liked, the gorge the stream runs through is so narrow that it's hard to get a balanced exposure. There's a nice waterfall just above the bridge as well.
There's a historic waterfall nearby that's been under the surface of the Gilboa reservoir for many generations that was exposed for a few months when the reservoir was drained to fix the dam, I didn't hear about it until much later and regret the missed opportunity. It was supposed to be quite a sight, and very popular as a tourist attraction over a century ago. The name escapes me at the moment, but I recall reading about a fishing trip someone took there about 4 years ago and saw the falls. They are back under water now, too bad.
that looks pretty nice! I love how it just comes out of the shadows and then spreads out.
Yeah it's very hard to shoot and have it come out right. I'm not a fan of HDR, so I've never done multiple exposures.
That one in the Gilboa reservoir sounds great! Too bad it's basically gone.
I lived for a few years in this area before my folks moved to Delaware county, we never went to this gorge in all that time. We also vacationed at Max Shaul's campground just down the road through high school. My dad was good friends with Max. He also worked for Paul Westheimer and his carrot farm before it came a tourist attraction. Very fond memories of that area!
Right on. This is a massive falls with an emerald green basin and a hike from a nice parking lot down to the falls. The lot is off rte 30 and you don't have to ask permission or go crazy trying to find a parking spot. The trail is not dangerous and there's an overlook platform above for those who could not handle the twenty minute hike down. I have painted this falls and were it close by would have done several. It is separate from the Minekill Park so don't go there looking for it.
we use to have a huge photo of this waterfall hanging up at my work that someone had shot 2 summers ago. They shot it later in the day though so the light wasnt such a harsh difference. Great shot though. I should try and get to this area.
I rode to Minekill in 2011, and unfortunately by the time I arrived it was later on a sunny day. I'm not particularly pleased with the pictures but they were the best I could manage... This is the upper falls, seen from near the observation platform mentioned previously.
