A unparalleled beautiful Summer view of Rochester is from the High Falls. This gagapan is the third in a series of views of downtown Rochester looking at the city from the High Falls bridge. For each season, a new gigapan will be taken showcasing this spectacular view of the city! This view represents a panoramic view of the Genesee River 96-foot waterfall and spectacular gorge and a visit to an urban cultural park that celebrates Rochester's earliest industrial area started during the Flour City era.
Over the summer months there is a Free Laser Show that bring thousands of visitiors to downtown's High Fall District for a night of family entertainment!
The shows are best viewed from the Pont de Rennes pedestrian bridge in the High Falls District on Platt St., off State St. This show features local talent and stories from the City's rich history.
Each show is about 20 minutes in length. Shows are projected onto the wall of the Genesee River gorge, which is illuminated by laser animation and special effects, fireworks, ever-changing lights and a state-of-the-art music soundtrack.
Photographers Note - This picture was taken on July 7, 2010 when the area tempature for the day and week was in the low 90's! I don't know if it was the temperature or faulty lithium batteries but during this photo shoot I ended up have to take it three times, because the Rotator Head kept abruptly stopping during the shoot!
