I have always loved animals. Then after taking the one and only arts class I took in college I began to realize I could merge my love of animals with this creative side I never really thought I had. I dreamed of being a big game photographer. Watching National Geographic and reading the magazine. Seeing the amazing photography and images of majestic wildlife. I wanted to do that. As I began to… Read More

Any day I can get outside is a good day. Even better if I have a chance to create some photographs. Today I managed to get outside three times. First I got outside with our dog River. We went for a nice 3 mile hike on the trails that follow the Chemung River near West Elmira. We took a nice leisurely pace, as River decided that she needed to examine and sniff… Read More

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

When it is wintery cold out it is always nice to find enjoyment in indoors activities. I am fortunate to live in a region that not only is blessed with natural beauty but is also home to fun indoor activities. One of my favorite places to visit is The Corning Museum of Glass. If you go to the Corning Museum of Glass make sure to check out their live demonstrations. Once you… 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

This post wraps up two years of my contributing daily blog posts here on my website. I am ending the year with my final daily blog post of 2022. Two years of daily blog posts In 2021 I took on the photography challenge of creating new photographs every single day of the year. Then I shared one photograph from each new days batch of photos here on my blog. That was such… Read More

Red Squirrel perched on a tree branch. Small critters in the woods can be a challenge. They tend to move around a lot. You can’t always get close. You need a long lens. There often isn’t a lot of light to have a fast shutter speed. The animals can hide out in shaddows. There are a lot of obstacles to overcome to achieve a decent photograph of woodland creatures. Photo details: Nikon… Read More

Eastern Cottontail Rabbits are one of the most adorable little creatures that can be seen pretty regularly if we spend time out and about. I seem to find Eastern Cottontail Rabbits at the borders of two environments. Particularly where a woodland ends and a field or other grassy area begins. The Eastern Cottontail Rabbits may use the woods for shelter and staying safe from predators. Then they emerge into the grassy fields… Read More

Eastern Chipmunks are pretty ubiquitous little creatures in the woods. They are often seen and heard on any hike. I find Eastern Chipmunks to be quite adorable critters and they make good photography subjects. But despite their omnipresence the Eastern Chipmunks can be challenging photography subjects. Eastern Chipmunks do not sit still very long. So as a photographer you have to find them, train your lens on them and take the photo… Read More
