I was traveling back from Kaaterskill Falls by car on a cloudless night sky that shined a rising near full Moon.
Heavy waterflow at Kaaterskill Falls. It was difficult to to get close to falls without heavy mist getting on the camera and lens.
Afterwards I traveled to the top of Kaaterskill Falls. I descended quickly to the upper ledge of the falls.
In 1826 Thomas Cole painted a scene that was named “From the Top of Kaaterskill Falls”. These photographs are a spirit of his 1826 painting.
The Laurel House (1852-1967) acquired the water rights to Spruce Creek and dammed it during tourist season, charging spectators below the falls a fee to watch as the waters were unleashed and the falls “turned on”.
After a long hiatus, I returned to Kaaterskill Falls. I can not believe it was that long between visits. I was very impressed with Plattekill Falls strong water flow just days before and thought about how Kaaterskill Falls water flow
