Robert Treman State Park - Gorges + Waterfalls, all in a days hike
Posted By: Morbo, 07-21-2009, 06:22 PM

Went for another day hike with the lady friend and her friend yesterday at Robert Treman state park in Ithaca, NY.
5 miles round trip from the lower gorge to upper gorge and back again. two trails, one up on one side, and down on the other. Great place for a hike, and to walk up a stream.
WARNING - numerous pictures of slow shutter waterfalls ahead! :lol


Lower falls at the bottom end of the main gorge where the swimming area/hole is. Water is cold as ****, and you can climb up and hang out at the bottom of the falls there. This was taken at about 7:30pm, so swimming was closed for the day.


Annie, once again thrilled I am taking her picture.






The lower half of the upper falls in the gorge. For an idea of the height, this is only really the bottom half, and you can see a person down at the bottom with a yellow shirt on.


This is pretty much a picture of everything that encompasses me and her and our relationship. happy. hanging out. in nature. enjoying the outdoors and the world.




A little perspective

Great picture! It looks like a great place to hike!

Can you tell me how you made picture #5... I keep trying to make a simular shot with a much smaller fall... but I get over exposure!

Thanks!

I really like the first one, and I know the reaction from the second one all too well

I set the camera down on a wall, actually. But a tripod will work too.
Also, if it's light out enough, you can usually hand-hold the camera and still get a clean shot.

I went to full manual, ISO 200, F/19, and a just barely slow shutter of 1/4sec.
That gives you enough motion of the fast water, but not too much to make it over exposed or too runny.
You'll have to adjust based on light, and how fast the water is going too.

Good luck!

Well done Dan.
Love the detail and vibrancy of your series.
First one's gorgeous, and the butterfly is rendered beautifully.
Thanks for sharing.
