We are crossing the Liftbridge and looking back at the bridge and its tower.  Here an Erie Canal employee keeps an eye out for canal boats and traffic so they can lift the bridge up and out of the way if needed. Its getting closer to sunset as you can see the bridge lights have come on.  There is still plenty of time to walk the Canal pathway.

Lets take a little stroll around Adams Basin this time in the Fall.  There is a beautiful Liftbridge here, a park and of course the Erie Canal and the Adams Basin Inn.

Here we are in the park and about to cross the liftbridge and looking at the small park on the opposite side of the Erie Canal. Fall is starting to show with the two yellow trees across the way and the burning bush is starting to turn red.  This view is with a 24 mm Lens:

Below is the same view from the same position with a 17 mm lens (17-40 mm) which I switched to so that I could get a wider angle.

On the top of a steep hill in Wyoming, NY at the Apple Umpkin Festival there was a beautiful brick building with huge columns.  It had a sign saying open so I went up and in and it was a museum with a girl in front in traditional dress. She said she made it herself.

This slightly more modern house at the Apple Umpkin Festival in Wyoming, NY had its doorway all decorated with holiday decorations.  I liked the way the tree cast a shadow over the front of the house.

Yes… I spelled that right, its the Apple Umpkin Festival in Wyoming NY.  This was a small Fall festival South of Brockport about 30 miles.  This is an amazing town as its all lit up 24 hours a day by gas lights as they have their own supple of endless gas wells nearby it appears.  Here is a quaint church that has a gaslight out front.

Six Packet Boats in Brockport!

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Ocassionally in Brockport, I see two packet boats and I love it.  On rare occasions I go down to the Erie Canal in the morning or at sunset and find 3 packet boats.  Last Fall I found 4 packet boats and almost fainted with excitement.  This morning I came across the Main Street Liftbridge and glanced over at the Erie Canal and there docked were SIX packet boats all facing the same direction.  I turned around and took out the camera even though it was raining hard.  The sky is gray and forbidding but the boats were spectacular.  It appears they were a group all traveling together.  The people were all together near the Welcome Center and partying.

The sun has risen here on the Erie Canal and now we can see clearly the Tugboat Urger even though there is no real direct sunlight on it. The fog and mist have dissipated now and the water is calm.

This foggy morning on the Erie Canal is finally getting lighter out and things are now visible.  The lights have gone out, but the mist and fog are still around a little on the water.  Here the tugboat Urger is more clearly visible tied up near the Welcome Center.
