A naiad is a creature from Greek mythology, a type of water nymph said to inhabit fresh water, such as streams, springs, and ponds. Looks like by adjusting my exposure time I was able to catch a glimpse of her soft white hair!

Hey Foxx, there are a lot of great waterfalls in the Troy area. The biggest ones are the Cohoes Falls, Barberville Falls, and the Poestenkill Falls. There are tons of smaller ones around too, including 2 great ones in Oakwood Cemetery. The one in this photo is a little hard to get to, you have to go a way down the drive of the Country Club of Troy, till it crosses a bridge. Immediately after crossing the bridge, the trail to these falls starts on the left side of the road. A full map of all the falls in Rensselaer County can be found here.
