Some images (postcard style) from Letchworth State Park in upstate New York. Called the "Grand Canyon of the East" for a reason, as the land is carved deep and steep by the Genesee River. A beautiful park, especially in the spring (a lot of young, crisp green and spritely yellow foliage that doesn't yet obstruct the view too much), and in the fall, when the leaves turn. Views are along the canyon from below AND above the bridge at the south end, and "Inspiration Point" at the north end of the main canyon. Access to the still operational railroad bridge (it's the Norfolk & Southern line I believe) is off-
limits and fenced in, but...
On a clear day, the (almost) straight axial view from I-Point south (towards the Middle and High Falls) is nothing short of stunning.
Sony A900 with Zeiss 16-35 f2.8 and Minolta Apo G 80-200 f2.8. Color images processed in LR4 with the 2012 processing engine; NIK SFX2 was used for the b/w conversions.
