Gentle Steps-Autumn at Deckertown Falls in New York

Catlin Mills Creek gently flows over Deckertown Falls and winds its way down to a calm pool ringed with fallen autumn leaves in the village of Montour Falls, New York.

This waterfall is one of two that I visited last October right outside of the village of Montour Falls, New York. You literally drive down a short residential street to the end and walk a couple of hundred feet through the woods to find it!

After finally finding and shooting Eagle Cliff Falls (read more here) shortly after sunrise, I drove the short distance over to the parking area for Deckertown Falls. The falls face the west, but after spending quite a bit of time at the other falls, there wasn’t much time before the sun would rise high enough to create bright spots in the scene. I worked quickly framing up a couple of different compositions before the sunlight began to stream through the trees behind the falls. This one came out nicely.
