While there is a somewhat distant viewing park at Cohoes Falls which is open all year, the closer location across the canal to the power plant is closed from the end of October to the beginning of May. This morning was my first chance to visit even though there was a bit of precipitation in the air.
It's good to get there before the leaves are fully out as they leave only a few good viewing angles without too many obstructions. If the lighting was better I would have ventured down the stairway and path but it didn't seem worth it this morning.
Equipment was a 5D Mark III with EF 24-105mm f/4 image stabilized lens. The geese were in the canal and the images are not cropped.
