Took a road trip this past Saturday up north to the Salmon River Falls Unique Area to get some shots of the falls. Took me about an hour to drive up there following Rte 3 along the lakeshore, then cutting through the Village of Pulaski and ending in Orwell. Actually I found quite a few more people out at the falls than I had anticipated, but by no means crowded. I am sure this was due to the fact that it was a very warm December day, about 45 degrees. Got some photos from the overlook and along the trail beside the falls and gorge. The falls themselves are good sized at 110 feet with three separate plumes of water cascading over the falls to the gorge below. I then ventured down the gorge trail to a switchback that gave a good view of the falls and the collection pool below them. I set up next to another photographer and as we were shooting, we began chatting and continued to talk about photography for about 45 min. until we both we ready to leave as the sun was setting fast. His name is Dewey Neild, http://www.deweyneild.com/, and I found that he publishes a waterfall calendar every year which is why he was out shooting. Primarily he is a wedding photographer, but then about 12 or 13 years ago he started this waterfall calendar and now it has become a big hit. Check out his website from the link above. I will certainly have to check this area out again, if not sooner, then definitely next fall during foliage season.
