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!
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.)
