One photo a day challenge: Day 203. Recently I have been thinking that it seems like I haven’t seen many pollinators around our flowers at our house. It feels like normally this time of year they are everywhere. We plant quite a few flowers. Both perennials and annuals. We also have a large section of our yard that is left wild and is full of wildflowers. Normally there is a constant buzz… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 198. Today was a long day with a lot of driving involved throughout the morning. We tried to squeeze in some fun on our way home though. We stopped at the Cornell Botanic Gardens. One of my favorite places. Seriously, there are not many better places to go if you want to practice a wide variety of photography. There was a lot of time spent driving… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 196. With all the rain lately it seems like the growth rate of plants has kicked into overdrive. I often focus on photographing flowers and trees when I am outdoors. However, Right now it is the time of the Fun Gi. Get it, Fungi. Yeah I know, terrible joke. But Seriously there are mushrooms growing all over my yard right now. I photographed at least 4… Read More

Two years ago as part of my build up to my first 100 mile race I put the Finger Lakes 50’s, 50 mile race on my schedule. This year I was traning for my second 100 mile race. This 100 mile race is at the end of July so has the potential to be quite warm. Planning to train for a potentially hot 100 mile race. I wanted to gain experience running… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 189. I had my eyes on the sky. Watching the clouds move. Shifting and changing shape. Clouds moving here and there. Letting a little bit of light through. The light at just the right angles. Stood outside in the drizzling rain. Watching color meld with clouds. Cloud cover set to glow by faint light. Then more storm clouds slowly rolled in. Smothering the soft colors. Putting… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 181. I was laying back reading a book. Then I looked up and noticed the light outside. I looked at my watch and it was about time for sunset. I craned my neck to get a better look. There might just be a photo worthy sunset outside. Sometimes nature just puts opportunities right in front of you without you having to do anything. I hadn’t really… Read More

I haven’t written much about my training or running this year. This run however was a little bit of a different experience so I thought I would take a minute to write about it. My training plan was calling for a 22 mile long run on trails. This is good because my biggest races are all on trail and I really have not spent much time running on trails this year. What… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 154. I’m not really a big fan of rainy days. I love to be outside. But I have a hard time getting motivated to go outside if its a rainy day. I think I just like simplicity too much. I don’t like the extra work or preparation that is needed to go outside and enjoy yourself on a rainy day. Being prepared for the rain so… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 153. Lately I have been experimenting with using more artificial lighting in my photography. I have really enjoyed the flexibility the Lume Cube lights I now have in my tool kit have afforded me. I have used these lights to make photographing in low lighting inside the house possible. The lights have also made photographing outside at night possible. And I have used these lights as… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 151. Today was another fun day of birding at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. There are so many great reasons to visit Montezuma. There are many great birding sights that await you when you arrive. However, often there is no way to know what you will actually see. But, showing up this time of year often ensures you will at least see the Purple Martins. There is… Read More
