Fall Favorite (A bit too much)

October 19, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Fall is different each year. Colors seem to progress at different speeds and to different levels and the leaves hang on for different times. But each year nature puts on quite a show, a show I love, but also a show that makes me wary of what's to come. And therefore I head out as much as possible to soak it all in, to have memories to get me through the six months of gray.

Disclaimer: Unfortunately, I goofed and overwrote my original post from Letchworth with a new article. I have done a minimal restore to show the original two photographs along with some minimal text around it. The rest of the original post is gone with the wind though.

Thanks to having visited the park many times over the years I now feel more freedom to stay away from the main highlights and hot spots and seek natural beauty a bit more off-the-beaten-path, even if it's right next door. The park has so much to offer that a photograph is waiting on every step.

I really love when parks integrate safety features into the landscape in an attractive way, like this stone wall in Letchworth State Park. Huge metal railings or concrete walls are eye-sores that often ruin the scenic nature of the natural places. Unfortunately, those brute features are becoming more and more common due to people's stupidity and often selfie seeking. Often you will see people behind barriers looking for the best vantage point or to snap the most adventurous selfie. And it's all goof until something happens. And then the authorities are either compelled or forced to act and an ugly barrier is born. What saddens me a lot is that it is often photographers who disregard the rules. And then those after them are faced with unattractive signs obstructing the view or a low stone wall turning into a massive steel railing.
