Photographer's Note

This amazing waterfalls is in Robert H. Treman State Park a few miles south of Ithaca, New York. Ithaca is the home of Cornell University. The traffic here was bad due to some major urban and road construction. Ithaca is a beautiful city and has some great waterfalls right in the middle of the Cornell College Campus. This waterfall is quite different from any of the waterfalls that I have seen. I was fascinated by the geology of this area. I have never seen so much strata of shale before. The numerous layers of shale and the unusual domed shape of the falls makes this one of my very favorite waterfalls that I have visited. It is also a great place to skip rocks. The rocks are the most perfectly shaped skipping stones that I have ever encountered and I had to take my exposures between the rock throwing sessions of my wife and all of the other little kids who were present. Some critics may comment that the photo needs sharpening, but I don't like to oversharpen waterfalls. It doesn't look natural to me.
