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.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Thanks. It's a little "hot" in the upper left, not much to be done about it with the sun the way it was, except maybe HDR and I didn't like how it turned out, so there you go.

I kinda like that hot spot like that -- it visually accents the fact that you're waaaay down in the gully.

found another one. This time I was standing near the crest of Upper Falls in Letchworth SP and shooting into the Gorge.
It's not a real waterfall shot, but somehow I like the mood in it.

Neat capture, Americanhero - even if there isn't a waterfall in it. :)

My husband and I went to Lake Placid over Thanksgiving and just stumbled across High Falls Gorge on our way to see Whiteface Mountain. This is a waterfall I've heard others on this site mention but didn't realize where it was. When we couldn't go on the Whiteface gondola ride, due to wind, I suggested we stop at the High Falls Gorge on our way back to town. I convinced my husband to hang out at the little cafe/gift shop while I hiked into the gorge to take pictures. I can't say winter waterfalls are my cup of tea, but I knew I probably would get that way again. These are my favorites of the actual falls.

Great shots Angel, the 2nd one is my favorite. :up:
