A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.

Plotter Kill Falls

Postby Crazyzouave » Sun Aug 10, 2008 7:48 pm

Some pictures I took of the lower Plotter Kill Falls right after a brief thunderstorm, August 10

The first three pictures are Jacobs Ladder Falls. The other falls can only be explored if you decide to walk upstream in the Plotter kill bring your water shoes. :) Russell Dunn's book doesn't mention if the falls have any names.

Matt,

It's located in the Plotter Kill Nature Preserve about 10 miles west of Schenectady, NY. These are just the Lower Falls. I'll post my pictures of the Upper Falls

Norm, Oh man, those shots of Plotterkill sparked up some old memories for me.
That is where I first got infected with the waterfall bug. We tromped around that
area quite often. I need to go back ... probably this fall. The little topo graphic in
this link is from the Plotterkill map. Thanks for posting those photos. They're great !!

Plotter Kill Falls

Postby amd is the best » Wed Jun 03, 2009 2:40 pm

Hello everyone, this is my first post here and I just wanted to say hi and post a pic. I was walking in the Plotter Kill Preserve and decided to be risky and climb down to take a few shots of the taller of the two falls. As it turns out I ended up sliding halfway down the very rugged "path" to the bottom on my rear, haha. After all was said and done I wasn't even all that impressed with the pic but I hope you all enjoy.

Shot with my EOS 50D and Canon 10-22 UWA: 1/4s f/8.0 at 10.0mm iso100

I agree with Matt...nice composition.
To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.
