I went from a place I have hardly ever been to to a place I have been to more than most. Today I visited Watkins Glen State Park. Probably my most visited location if not my most photographed. I have actually been here quite a few times this year. Probably more than normal for me. Today I wanted to make a trip to Watkins Glen State Park for a very specific reason…. Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 183. Tomorrow is race day for me. So I went to pick up my race bib and schwag. Then I since I was in the area I made a stop at one of my favorite places. I went to Watkins Glen State Park. Watkins Glen State Park is known for its gorge and its waterfalls. I took lots of photos. I photographed the waterfalls trying some… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 170. It has been a very enjoyable vacation. Sad to see it come to an end. Relaxing, reading, campfires, and our dog. Oh and the sunsets. The sunsets were beautiful. Thankfully our vacation closed out with this spectacular view.

One photo a day challenge: Day 169. Today was a mostly rainy day. We stayed hunkered down at our campsite. When the rain finally relented it was time for a fire. I positioned myself so the woods would be in the background of the photo. I took a few photos to get the composition I wanted. Then I sat and waited for the fire to spit out some sparks. This is the… Read More

One benefit of relaxing and staying in one place on this trip is having multiple opportunities to photograph the same location. Sometimes the same location can look very different at different times of day. Even at the same time of day on different days the location can have a different look depending on different environmental factors. Today I photographed the lake at Higley Flow State Park during sunset for the third time… Read More

The other night might have been the worst thunderstorm we’ve endured while out camping, but today was the rainiest day. It rained on and off all morning. There wasn’t much relief in the afternoon either. Intermittent rains continued. Multiple times I started fires only to be thwarted by the return of the rain. We stayed at camp all day. Trying to make the best of it. Huddled up under our canopy to… Read More

Today we spent the afternoon down at the lake at Higley Flow State Park. The lake here is apparently connected to a large system of waterways. This large system of waterways appears to have its own tidal system. The water levels were different this afternoon than they were this morning. This exposed rocks, and tree limbs, and sand that previously was under water. It is nice to have scenery that will vary… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 66. Today I spent the morning out on some trails with friends. We hiked at Watkins Glen State Park. The park is most well known for all of its waterfalls along the gorge trail. But this time of year the gorge trail is closed. We spent our time hiking the upper rim trails. Even those trails were quite icy. Make sure you wear proper footwear. I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 58. Today was a day like I haven’t had many of this winter. My wife and I got out of the house and spent most of the day outside enjoying some nature. We were able to visit two of New York’s Finger Lakes. The weather was supposed to be unseasonably warm. Thawing our region out of the deep freeze of ice and snow packed tightly across… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 30. Today I got out and photographed one of my favorite types of subjects, waterfalls. I love photographing waterfalls. They offer so many unique photographic opportunities each time you visit. I am fortunate to live in a region rich in these opportunities. With this long persistently cold winter we’ve been having in upstate New York I decided it was the perfect opportunity to get out and… Read More
