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!

I may need to see that later on. I've only been as far east as Albany...not to Troy yet. I went to the Adirondacks this time up in Essex County around Tahawus in the High Peaks Region. Beautiful scenery up there. Anyways, I'll get out to the Albany area again soon enough, as well as the Catskills Region. :0)

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.
