A storm had just passed over Watkins Glen. The warm sun was just breaking through the misty air in the glen above Minnehaha Falls and the Cavern Cascade. It was a truly magical moment to behold.
Watkins Glen State Park is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, at the southern end of Seneca Lake, in the north eastern United States.
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 10D DSLR / Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L lens. The focal length was 21mm, ISO was set at 400 with an f/8 aperture and shutter speed of 1/30 sec. The camera was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod and “joystick” ball head.
No “special effects” have been applied here. The sun rays are just as they actually appeared to the naked eye.
