"Gee, the weather was marvelous!" -- not us.

This is Peebles Island, Waterford, NY, on a rainy day. Brought the Big Kahuna (RX10 MkIV) in case we saw eagles, but never unholstered it.

Everything shot with XP90 on Auto setting.

From the bridge. That's Peebles Island on the left. That's water from the Mohawk River on its way to join the Hudson River.

That small rise is the remains of a revolutionary war gun emplacement:

Water is pouring over the dam.

This tree seems to be practicing social distancing:

Water was so high at the rapids on the South side that they looked almost flat:
