I genuinely love living where I do. I think we live in one of the most beautiful regions. There is such a wide variety of experiences to be had and so much diverse nature to experience. Waterfalls, streams, and rivers of all shape and sizes dot the landscape. Experience forests, fields, and wetlands. See birds, beer and deer among many other wild creatures. Enjoy creature comforts with your friends. Spend time at… Read More

Its funny how something you were completely unaware of for along time can become one of your favorite things. Growing up we were a fairly outdoorsy and active family. We went camping and visited some state parks. But it is crazy to realize how much you don’t know that you don’t know regarding the wide variety of outdoor experiences that exist. I didn’t discover that we have this amazing trail system that… Read More

Taughannock Falls State Park is one of my favorite New York State Parks to photograph. There are a lot of different aspects of this park. It is really easy to overlook something on any given visit. Or you can commit on visit each to an area of the park. Visitor Center Don’t overlook making a stop at the visitor center at this state park. The visitor center was completely rebuilt in recent… Read More

I love to run. If I have my choice I choose to run trails. Often I take a camera with me. There are things I can see out on a trail adventure that I may not see any other time. I may explore in ways on a run that I don’t other times. Longer, farther on the trail. Not where I would normally think to go with my camera. A couple years… Read More

I always like to check out new spaces. This was my first time at Hemlock Lake. I look forward to going abck. I was lucky to have this beautiful winter scene to photograph. Snow covered levee. Frozen Lake. Geese all about. There was a large flock of geese on the lake. There are two flocks of gees flying in towards the lake off in the distant sky. I wasn’t quite sure what… Read More

Always take a minute to look up. You never know what might be hanging over your head. When I get out for photography in winter I like to look for interesting ice formations. Icicles are obviously a good choice when you can find them. Fortunately in our area there are a variety of gorges to visit and look for interesting icicle formations. These icicles were hanging from the gorge wall at Watkins… Read More

So here we are again. Time for the Finger Lakes 50’s trail races. This was my 4th time running in this event. My first time going in for the 25k version since 2017. Back in 2017 the Finger Lakes 50s 25k was my first ever 25k distance. And this has been a wild and crazy ride to return back here for my second go at the 25k distance here at finger Lakes 50s….

One of my favorite activities is running. Running brings me a lot of joy and satisfaction. One of the ways I keep the good time rolling with my running is by finding new things in running to do. This year I have been jumping into a lot of the things the Finger Lakes Running Club has going on. One of the cool new things happening at the Finger Lakes Running Club is… Read More

Double-Crested Cormorants are large waterfowl. The Double-Crested Cormorant is more like a loon or a merganser than a duck. When Double-Crested Cormorants are swimming on the water they have an odd look to them. They often seem to have more of their bodies under water or just at surface level. If you see a Double-Crested Cormorant swimming on the water it often looks more like a submarine periscope sticking up out of… Read More

The Common Gallinule (Common Moorhen) is a bird often found out on the water. Finding these Common Gallinule at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge has been fun. This photo does a good job showcasing the environment where the Common Gallinule live. On a pond. Behind some foliage. Out on the water with other waterfowl like ducks. I also like the way the Common Gallinule is looking down almost like it is watching its… Read More
