Spillway on the Erie Canal near Adams Basin

Here along the South side of the Erie Canalway I came across a dam and spillway with valves. It seems to regulate and keep the Erie Canal at a maximum height by spilling any excess water over into a creek. 

In the first view you can see the pre-HDR image or jpg as it came out of the camera.

The HDR view below it is not altered or enhanced in Photoshop as it is just a merging of 5 images of the same scene of different exposures combined in Photomatix software. This allows the larger spectrum of light to be seen much as the human eye would see it there at the time of capture.

Here we are walking further down the Erie Canal Pathway trail going West out of Adams Basin. Many leaves have begun to change color with these tall trees having red vines going up them. Two people walk their dogs and enjoy the cool crisp Fall air.

After you get off the Liftbridge, you arrive at another park and a stop along the Erie Canal Pathway Trail.  Here you see the same two yellow trees and the burning bushes and the Erie Canal on the right.

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.
