Delaware Water Gap

October 12, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

The autumn foliage on the east coast has come very early this year, or at least that's what I've been told.  I have been tracking the fall color and one place somewhat nearby that I wanted to check out was the Delaware Water Gap.  Basically what the Water Gap is, is the the spot along and long Adirondack ridge where the Delaware River found a weak spot and cut through.  The terrain around the Gap is pretty interesting so I was excited to take the dog for some hiking and photos.

Here's the actual gap, like most canyons and gorges it's pretty difficult adequately photograph due the extreme contrast from light to shadow.  Side note - I-80 runs right through the Gap, but there was almost no one on the trails.

Some fall color on the hike up to the Appalachian Trail from the Farview trail head:

Love the light on this one, view from the Appalachian Trail:

On the hike I ran into Dunnfield Creek with some nice light.  This first one is actually an HDR image:

Another shot of the creek, I like the logs and the leaves floating in the foreground:

Final shot, this one is probably my favorite composition of the day:
