We’ve had an unusually warm and dry month of April, but the rains finally did arrive, and I was eager to visit my favorite waterfall locations. One of these is Stony Kill Falls in Minnewaska State Park, which actually suffered a 3000 acre wildfire recently due to the warm and dry conditions. The falls and creek were really strong, so much so that I had a difficult time keeping my camera lens dry long enough to compose an image. Good thing I brought the best piece of gear in these conditions – a piece of chamois cloth from my local auto parts dealer which is the most absorbent material I know of and works great on lenses,
My goal was simply to convey the strength of the moving water and its deafening sound as it falls 87 feet and continues along the Stony Kill Creek. Let’s just say I didn’t manage to stay dry for long, but the experience was well worth it.
