    Yesterday I had the awesome privilege of visiting Watkins Glen State Park with some of my best friends. Last time I was there I was just getting into photography, trying to do my best with a 4mp Kodak DX7440. Needless to say, I was really excited to use my new skills and equipment out on one of the most beautiful state parks in the country. I do have to say, I'm pretty happy with how the images turned out. I'll definitely be printing some of these really big to hang on my wall.

    We walked the entire Watkins Glen Gorge trail, stopping every few feet to capture the stunning landscapes. Thankfully my friends are also into photography so they didn't get too irritated!

    I just came back from a hike. How were you able to reduce the intensity of the sun reflecting off rocks/plants, etc? I'm super frustrated.

    Would have been nice to have a 'darker' ND filter for these shots so you could get the water really well. I love the shots, though. What lens did you take these with?

    Some very, very nice compositions here. Nice colors, as well. I love all of them, as they are really interesting to look at. Looks like a beautiful place to shoot!
