    I've been trying to photograph this state park for years now, and I've never had any luck with it. It's extremely difficult to find a composition with a traditional camera because the beach is so small that you can't get far enough from the bluffs.

    I've always known that a drone was the answer, however NY State Parks don't allow drones to be flown from their property. On this trip, I got creative and found a spot to fly the drone from legally that is not on their property, thereby making it legal.. at least as far as I'm aware.

    Let me know what you think!

    I am right near the chimney bluffs... so this is really fascinating to see from this view ..... to think they won't always be here makes these photos even more precious.. so much land erosion here.. such beautiful photos

    Hello neighbor! I had no idea that you were that close to me! I'm out between Buffalo and Rochester.

    It's definitely sad to know that they'll be gone or very different in the fairly near future.

    The first one I honestly don’t remember. The second two were at my 390ft max.

    I really like the 3rd one. Great colors and light. The overheads are too dizzying for me.

    I love Chimney Bluffs. Had no idea you were there--I thought you were in Richmond. Thanks for sharing the shots.
