One photo a day challenge: Day 76. For most of winter we had thick snow covering the ground. But it has warmed up considerably. And now it is nearly spring. The warmer weather has melted almost all the snow in low lying areas. Some snow remains at higher elevations. The snow is clinging in the forest. This small stream runs through the woods where we live. It is mostly free flowing water… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 71. Most of the snow has melted in our area. I wanted to explore down by one of the local streams and see what I could find to photograph. The stream was flowing with all the extra run off from melted snow. All the vegetation that had died back to survive the winter was exposed now. Fallen trees were clear to see. Bare roots. Cracked tree… 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 61. I am so happy that spring is getting close. It is finally the time of year, where it is still plenty light out on my commute home that I can stop and create some photos before going home. I stopped down at the trails by Chemung River again. The warm weather had melted a good bit of the snow and I wanted to see how… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 57. Today I actually did one of the things I have been wanting to do much more of, but have actually done almost none of. Today I went for a run. And on that run I carried my camera with me. During the run I stopped and took photographs and enjoyed the scenery. I recently invested in gear I wanted to use specifically for the purpose… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 56. A lot of my winter photography has centered around trees. I am not sure exactly what it is that draws me to trees. Is it the contrast between the straight lines of tree trunks and the random sprouting twists and turns of their branches? Is it the wide variety of textures that can be found across different tree trunks or within the tree trunk of… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 51. I love nature. Being out in nature is one of the best things I am fortunate enough to experience. There are so many natural places I love. I have favorite places that I visit often. And there are places I don’t get to often enough. There are places I dream of going in far off places. There are also places right in my own back… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 48. As today developed they sky was clear and the sun was shining. The sun was high in the sky and blindingly bright throughout the day. So unlike it has been recently. As the day progressed and the sky stayed clear with the sun bright I began to think about my photography. I was thinking of what I would do for my daily photograph today. With… Read More

I have been working more on my overall fitness of late, but my running has been taking more of a back seat than it has in the past. I probably have not run nearly as much as I have in winters past. Especially considering 2 of the past 4 years I have been training for ultras in the spring. Last year I was training for a half marathon PR. This year I… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 37. Today I was able to get to one of my favorite state parks for a quick photo session. We had to be out in the Ithaca area so I wanted to swing by Taughannock Falls State Park to capture some images. This state park is known for its amazing waterfall. But, I wanted to capture and image that shows off other points of interest. In… Read More
