Moore's Bridge Falls

Postby George » Wed Nov 11, 2009 9:46 pm

In Greene County, right under route 23A, about 1.9 miles from Palenville on Kaaterskill Creek. This is best accessed by parking in a small pullout east of the falls, then walking up over the bridge past the falls and descending on the far side.

Nicely done, keeping most of the bridge out of the frame, something that's hard to do at this set.

Excellent shots. Love the color of the rock there.

Does anyone have problems with the older pics like George's not showing properly?

The ones here seem corrupted or missing. Looks like they were uploads directly to the site, so something must have happened.

Thanks LGD for confirming. Lot's of the Catskills pictures seem to be corrupted. Thankfully many of yours are still good. They have been helpful to me. I just spent a few days in the region. Only made it to Kaaterskill but that is one of my favorites anyways. The flow was strong this time.

Yes, with the rain lately, I'm sure they are running full. I've yet to go there this year. I have some shots of the Moore's Bridge falls, I'll see if I can get some posted.

Here they are, I don't have too many, looks like I've only been there a couple times. Usually on the way past to Kaaterskill or into the mountains.

Here's one I took on a hot summer day of some people swimming and having fun jumping off the rocks. This is obviously the sort of thing we don't want and is probably why all the parking areas along this section of the road have been blocked off.

A shot when there was much more water, I think late fall, of my friend getting set up to take some shots.

And the shot I took trying to get most of the bridge out of the frame. Not too easy to do, and I think the composition suffers for it, but it is what it is. This is probably why we never stopped there too much, it's just too hard to get a good shot without the bridge.

Yes, thank you for sharing the photos. You have many Eastern NY fall shots and it is always great to see them.

Thanks, I was surprised I had never posted these, must've gotten lost in the shuffle.
