Three years ago, I took up photography with the encouragement of a new friend. He has taught me many tricks and methods, including good light. Well, good light at Kaaterskills Falls comes pretty early in the morning on long summer days. After heavy rains this past week, and a beautiful day on tap, I tried getting there early. I arrived to a fabulous show by Bastion Falls at the beginning of the trail, and was quickly side-tracked taking shots from the road. I shook off the distraction, and knowing I had to beat the sun, headed up the trail to the Kaaterskill Falls. The sun was just peaking over the tree tops, and I wrestled as I edited this photo. At least the water was running well and I beat the crowd.
