Week 25, Day 177, October 18, 2009, Fall Falls, Winner of the Week in Online Viewer Poll

We are very busy in our daily lives.  We work long hours. We spend time at our children's sporting events. I have a hobby of photography. Were looking with our son at Colleges for our youngest son.  We make dinner. We sleep. We are doing renovations to our house.  The list goes on and on.  I'm sure many of you can relate to this.

Today wasn't one of those days.  My wife and I got to spend some time together. First we went to Hollibeck Cider Mill for cider, and pies. Next we headed to the Ithaca Farmers market.  Third was Ithaca Falls, where I took advantage of my hobby. Finally we ended at the Thou Art Gallery in Groton for a little shopping.

It was a great day, and a lot of fun.  All that other stuff can wait for another day.

Lessons Learned:
  • It will be tough to get a winter, early spring, or late fall photo of Ithaca Falls in their entirety.  The Sun is to far south, and the gorge blocks a lot of the sun at those times of the year.
Photo details: Exposure time .6 sec, Aperture f/22.0, ISO 100, Focal Length 70 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 113mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, tripod.

Winner of the week in the online viewer polls. Monthly winner in online viewer poll.

Nice compo, Steve! Do watch the blowouts in the water though. Hot spots like these are a nightmare in print (and can be very obvious on screen).
