Buttermilk Falls State Park is a beautiful state park situated in the Finger Lakes region of New York not far from the southern end of Cayuga Lake. As soon as you arrive at the park it is quite evident what makes this park so impressive. The first thing you see as you walk or drive into the main entrance for the park is the largest waterfall in the park. The water flows… Read More
There are a few of our local parks that I visit pretty regularly. One of my frequently visited spots is Sperr Park. I love it here any time of year, but the spring is particularly beautiful. The flowers planted here are starting to bloom and these beautiful flowering trees are in full bloom. These trees are bright and majestic. I love them. There don’t seem to be many places I have come… Read More
I try to photograph a wide variety of locations. And I try to incorporate a variety of different types of photography into my adventures. Frequently my photography takes me to public parks. Most of the time when I am photographing public parks I try to shoot it in a way that excludes the man made aspects of the park. I like to try to showcase nature most of the time. When I… Read More
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
After a day of driving around visiting multiple sites we wanted to spend the entire day all at one place. We decided to spend the day at Taughannock Falls State Park. If you are not familiar with Taughannock Falls State Park its most well-known feature is its namesake, Taughannock Falls which plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge.
If our world hadn’t been upended by the corona virus I would have been leading my second migratory bird workshop at Eldridge Park, but that was not to be. Even though I am not currently able to go gather a group and guide them through some wildlife photography I still kept faith with myself and went to Eldridge Park solo. It was cold but mostly sunny this morning. I thought I would… Read More
We visited this place 10 years ago and fell in love with it. We normally like to go on trips to places that we have never been to before to explore something totally new, but this year we finally made a return trip to one of our favorite places. We went back to Mt. Desert Island. On our last trip here we had so much fun but there is so much to… Read More

When I first started running I never thought I would be doing the things I have done. They were not things thst I wanted to do. Some of the things I’ve done I didn’t even know were things people do when I first started running. Like trail running; that’s a thing? Running a trail marathon; people really do that? As I began to run more I met more people. I made amazing… Read More
