Visiting Indian Well State Park during Connecticut Fall Foliage Season

This past New England Fall Foliage season I traveled to Connecticut exploring Indian Well State Park. It's a recreational area along the west bank of Lake Housatonic near Shelton, CT. It also features Indian Well Falls, a 15-foot horsetail waterfalls with a beautiful pool at bottom. This Connecticut waterfall is only a short walk from the parking area and easy to reach, right up my sleeves.


Fall foliage was still at peak or past peak with some leaf drop apparent. My Canon 16-35mm wide-angle lens allowed me to incorporate the circular gorge and pool while also adding some bright autumn colors at the top of the waterfall. A polarizing filter eliminated glare on the rocks and boosted color saturation. The filter also extended exposure times by approximately one stop allowing for a more pronounced silky water effect. On my way out and back to the car I explored the rushing cascades downstream of this stunning New England waterfall. This second photography image shows Indian Hole Brook with its surrounding environment, providing a good feel of the entire scenery around this Connecticut State Park.


In the last photograph, I looked for more Intimate Compositions of the flowing waters and fallen leaves. There was a very photogenic area of moos covered rocks that were in beautiful contrast with orange leaves. I loved photographing here and spent a decent amount of time here trying different perspectives and compositions, could have photographed all day here.

Good light and happy photo making!
