Look up photos of Kaaterskill Falls and you’ll usually see the same angles that spotlight the upper or lower falls (with or without influencers or leaf color manipulation). I “danced around the teacup” before sunrise to find something different after realizing that just the waterfall just wasn’t enough. Wading in the frigid water at the foot of the falls, I found interest with some leaves that were caught in the rocks. The colors were plenty saturated out of the camera. After the sun rose and I was done, I turned around to see a dozen people taking pictures of the waterfall. Luckily, I was in nobody’s shot, as this wasn’t an angle someone would’ve thought interesting (I was later told that when I was setting up, you couldn’t even tell what I was trying to take a photo of).
The park blew up in attendance from that point, as a 1/4 mile long line of cars were lying in wait to get into the full parking lot as I left, allowing a NYC leaf peeper to take my parking spot.
