Cohoes Falls - Cohoes, NY

Spent some time shooting at Cohoes Falls with my friends Catherine and Kris.


It was wonderfully overcast on my 1 hour drive to Kris' house. By the time we met Catherine at Cohoes Falls, the sun was full on. Those little clouds in the shot weren't near the sun. If you've been here you know that this massively wide falls is in the sun virtually all day.


I stacked the ND 8 on top of the circular polarizer and it messed with the colors and the sharpness a bit. I was also very disappointed that we could not get to the riverbed to shoot. Apparently they have all kinds of rules about when the access can be opened, having to do with the weather onsite, the weather up river, and whether or not there is a "riverkeeper" around. So living an hour away there isn't much you can do to know if the access will be open when you get there. Guess I have to keep trying!!
