One of my favorite activities is running. Running brings me a lot of joy and satisfaction. One of the ways I keep the good time rolling with my running is by finding new things in running to do. This year I have been jumping into a lot of the things the Finger Lakes Running Club has going on. One of the cool new things happening at the Finger Lakes Running Club is… Read More

It is always exciting to get out and visit a new location. I don’t usually do any research in advance of a visit to a new place to see what I might find there. I like to be surprised. The excitement of seeing something new and unexpected is part of what I find so fun. If you see a new bird. Do you know what it is. Are you familiar with it…. Read More

I think this is such a cool shot of Turkey Vultures. It isn’t very often that you have the opportunity to photograph Turkey Vultures in flight and be at eye level if not a little above their flight. I also have not had many opportunities to photograph Turkey Vultures this close and actually capture more than one bird in the frame at the same time. Letchworth State Park seems to be a… Read More

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 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

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

Two aspects of running that I love are exploring nature and testing myself. Running the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge was going to give me the chance to do both. The Hills Creek Endurance Challenge takes place at Hills Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. The event is a 3 mile trail loop. There are options to run the loop for 3, 6, or 12 hours. I have only ever run one other timed… 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
