One of the nicest places to hike in the winter is Taughannock Falls State Park. The park features a 1 mile trail that is pretty level and relatively easy to navigate even in the snow. And as a reward for braving the cold and the snow there is the 200+ foot waterfall to view at the end of the trail. The waterfall is quite a site throughout this time of year as… Read More

On my trips to Acadia National Park one of the most popular places for people to visit has been Thunder Hole. This beautiful landscape draws crowds of people. In addition to the landscape itself being beautiful if the tides are crashing on the shore just right it causes I loud booming noise ion that location, thus the name Thunder Hole. I have not yet been fortunate enough to experience the booming of… Read More

I really enjoy hiking. Getting out and exploring nature by foot. I’ll go for just about any type of hiking adventure. But, not too many hiking adventures can compete with hikes that lead to beautiful views from mountain overlooks. Exerting myself to climb up to a view of nature like this is one of the most satisfying feelings for me. There are so many amazing views to explore. I really need to… Read More

I love to explore landscapes. My favorite places to explore are areas that are home to a variety of different types of environments. There is quite a bit to see at the Paul Smiths Visitor Center in the Adirondack region of New York. Wetlands and woodlands. Mountain landscapes off in the distance. Wildflowers and trees. And it is even a nice spot to watch some birds. There are nice trails that will… 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

If there is any one place that I long to return to it is Alaska. There is an overwhelming amount of beauty to see there. The small slice I was able to see there over a decade ago will live with me forever. That is one of the many reasons I love photography. Create memories you can take with you and live with forever. Getting a close up look at a glacier… Read More

I love exploring landscapes. The Adirondack Mountain region of New York is a great place to do that. This is a photo from Buttermilk Falls. I like this image because the actual falls of Buttermilk Falls plays a minor role in the composition. Working my way through the landscape to show the flow of water away from the falls and through the woods. The waterfall itself is only visible among the trees… Read More

The motion of the river far below. Combined with the motion of the leaves blowing in the wind up high. Looking down into the river valley at Letchworth State Park. I like how the two different types of motion are combined in this photo. Photo details: Nikon D300S. Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3. Focal length 18mm. ISO 125. 5.0 sec. f/13. Thank you for joining me on the blog today. See more photos of… Read More

I like capturing movement in long exposures. Usually that takes the form of water in landscapes. Often its waterfalls. In this photo the ocean is moving along the coast of the beach. Along the edge of the sand the photo shows the soft white that is the motion of the waves crashing on the shore. Through the long exposure of 30 seconds the waves on the shore and across the body of… Read More
