About the Author

A resident of western New York, Scott A. Ensminger has a longstanding interest in waterfalls. Over the past 25 years, he has written a number of books about the waterfalls of New York, including The Caves of Niagara County, New York; A Waterfall Guide to Letchworth State Park; Finger Lakes Falls; and Niagara's Sisters. In 1991, Ensminger initiated the Western New York Waterfall Survey. Visit his website at falzguy.com.

David J. Schryver was born and raised in northern New York. A native of Watertown, in Jefferson County, he has lived the past 34 years in St. Lawrence, the state's largest county. A high school math teacher for 33 years, Schryver has always had an interest in waterfalls, and around the time of his retirement in 2006, he started to visit and research the dozens of falls in his home area. This passion and his sideline of web development led to the website nnywaterfalls.com.

Interested in photography since he was young, Edward M. Smathers has taught himself the technical aspects of camera systems, gradually honing his skills and learning the fine art of photo editing. Capturing the essence of the natural world and waterfalls has become almost an obsession for Smathers, who spends much of his time searching out new locations and beautiful subjects to photograph. A native New Yorker, Smathers has traveled all over the world but is confident that his perfect shot will be taken right here in New York State.
