A World Away by PhotoByTrace A World Away by PhotoByTrace
A world away from the bedlum of the city, from the fast pace and the never-ending demands on our lives lays this fairytale landscape where you can leave your worries and problems at the gate and just let the peace revive your inner soul. Feel the cool of the rock walls, hear the sounds of the waterfalls and just forget the rest of the world for a while.

Watkins Glen State Park, NY. Taken on my recent visit to the States.

The same morning:

It is a wonderful area... and not too far from the Canadian border ;)(though quite possibly on the other side of the continent lol)
Thanks for your comments and I'm glad the photos captured your imagination :heart:

in Souther California where I'm at, it's HARD to see such green, dynamic scenery full of water. Out here everything's about the Sun, which although makes pleasant weather, by itself is boring. This is ABSOLUTELY beautiful!

Glad that you found beauty in it! I live in the dry tropics of North Queensland so I often struggle in winter when the sky is endless blue but the ground is endless brown to find this type of beauty... but it sure is a lovely way to spend winter :D

I think it is that "other worldliness" feel to the location... almost like it is out of a movie set for a sci-fi or similar. An amazing place.

I was talking more abou the smooth of stones and the flow of the water, so smooth that looks almost, unreal. You're welcome.

Absolutely gorgeous shot. I just want to be there sitting alongside the stream with a bottle of wine, cheese and a baguette, taking in the beauty of the surroundings.

Glad it inspires these feelings for you. It took us quite a while to make our way through the park simply because we just kept stopping to sit and take it all in (and of course, take photos).
Have to admit the feel of the place certainly changed once the gates were officially opened and the crowds streamed in though.

Can you swim in there?

There is a swimming area at a couple of the nearby waterfalls, and also at the campground. But no, not where this was taken, though I almost ended up swimming when I slipped on some wet rocks trying to get to a "better" location at one point ;)

Someone I really miss is from New York and he's always telling me about it, so seeing this makes me smile because you brought out the beauty in what he tells me. This is a wonderful shot. I love it. You have an amazing talent.

I hope so. He's supposed to take me to see the ball drop next new years, I'll make him take me exploring. And you're welcome. It's such a lovely shot, I couldn't pass it up. :)
