“The Chutes” at Auburn are a feature created by an active railroad bridge over the Schuylkill River. I only know of two ways to get to them. First, by bicycle at the end of the Bartram Trail (a segment of the Schuylkill River Trail from Hamburg, PA to Auburn, PA) or by Kayak. From the end of the bike trail, one needs to hike down a steep embankment, follow a narrow trail and cross active rail tracks.
Kayakers regularly shoot the chutes in their downriver migrations. Just below the chutes is a slight bend in the river and a small pebble beach. From there I created these studies using a bean bag to steady my DSLR for long exposures capturing dreamy water flows. I also made some pictures with a full spectrum camera decked out with a 590nm infrared filter. I developed the IR images in two different ways. Those with golden water are straight out of the camera while those with blue water were developed using Kolari Vision’s channel swapping software that swaps the red and blue channels in Photoshop.
