Letchworth State Park

As promised, the world photo day runner up–Letchworth State Park–is here. I was planning on waiting another couple of days to post it so I had a bit more time to cull my favorites out of the collection. Today, however, is the 100th birthday of the National Parks Service so I thought it was fitting to do this now. So here goes:

I went to Letchworth State Park, in Upstate NY, quite a while ago now (you can see the trees are still bare) with a friend who is also an amateur photographer (although he sells some of his photos so I guess that could count as professional). It was fun going with someone else who is into photography because usually I just bore people while I try to figure out the right settings for a shot while they’re ready to move on to something else. Plus he did the driving which is always good!


I digress.

Letchworth State Park is, apparently, called the Grand Canyon of the East. I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon so I can’t speak from experience, but I’m not sure this is as impressive. Still, it’s quite stunning; particularly the beautiful woods (which I’d love to see again in the fall.)
