Cohoes Falls

During my time in Cohoes, I had the opportunity to live with a great friend of mine. We were both relatively new to DSLRs and often used the Cohoes Falls and surrounding areas to try out learn some of the features of our cameras and lenses. The beauty of the falls and the surrounding landscape certainly catches your attention and you can see what the early settlers saw here.
