18-125mm F3.8-5.6 DC (OS)* HSM 1/640 second f8 400

Cohoes Falls, Cohoes, New York, rumbles with the water of the Mohawk River, which wends its way quietly across New Yorkes Southern Tier until just North of Albany. A large hydroelectric plant pulls water away upstream, but on this early morning, maintenance in the facility reduced the pull off, resulting in an impressive flow over the falls. Early morning sun backlit the spray. The name ?Cohoes? is apparently derived from a Native American word, ?Ca-ha-hoose,? which means ?shipwrecked canoe.? I would not like to be paddling along the serene Mohawk only to be confronted with this shocking downstream sight!
