The photograph below is an image I took from the top of Kaaterskill Falls:
The Art Flick Memorial found along Route 23A photographed during a near full Moon just after 11PM on May 13th, 2014. I was traveling back from Kaaterskill Falls by car on this cloudless night sky that shined a rising near full Moon with stars over the Schoharie Creek near to the Art Flick Memorial. The stars and planets were bright in the sky as I walked to the Schohaire Creek from the Art Flick Memorial. I was disappointed in the Moon at Kaaterskill Falls. Its angle onto Kaaterskill Clove was not high enough to shine into the clove for full light onto Kaaterskill Falls for a well exposed even photograph. I waited a few hours at the top of Kaaterskill Falls but to no avail. I decided to travel back to my bed. While I was disappointed in the outcome of my photography. I was very encumbered by the sites and scene. I was glad to be here at this time.
I posted those photos on June 2nd 2014 and I am still amazed by the brightness and clarity of the images taken about 15 minutes after 11PM.
A keen website visitor sent a contact message to myself stating I mis-positioned the location of the Art Flick Memorial on a previous post. They were absolutely right. The Art Flick Memorial is found along Route 23A. Not Route 23 as I erroneous posted- I forget to type the A after 23.
However they stated a viewer of my website would never find the Art Flick Memorial. If you viewed this website and could not find the Art Flick Memorial then look again. The search is about you. The search is about the beauty. You did not search hard enough.
I have updated the exact location on that photography page. On this particular night it was not about the photography… it was not about the fishing. It was not about the bug spray needed regarding the mosquitoes for either of the mentioned ventures. It was the view east and the view west along Schohaire Creek.
For Art Flick on a night like tonight it was about the cast of the line. For me on the night like tonight it was push of a button.
