Watkins Glen Gorge ~ N.Y.

Thank you for viewing and your comments. Please press L for viewing.


Watkins Glen Gorge is located on the southern end of Seneca Lake near the little village of Watkins Glen.

The gorge features a hiking trail that climbs up through the gorge, passing over and under water falls. The glen is a 400 foot deep (120 m) gorge cut through rock by a stream that was left hanging when the glaciers from the Ice Age deepened the Seneca Valley, increasing the tributary stream gradient to create rapids and waterfalls wherever there were layers of hard rock. The rock consist mostly of soft shales, with some layers of harder sandstone and limestone.


I was reviewing some old Kodachrome slides and converted this one digitally. I did use Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 in the conversion process to black and white.
