Today I was up in the Ithaca, NY area. I was there to run the first of the January, Winter Chill 5k series hosted by the Finger Lakers Runners Club. The Winter Chill 5k series is a members only series of 5k races that takes place each Sunday in January. I have never done this series before but it seemed like a good way to commit to keeping my training going in… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 355. It has been below freezing most nights lately. However, most daily high temperatures have been above freezing and even into the 40’s. I was wondering if the cold temperatures have been enough to freeze water over night and have it remain until mid day the next morning. I figured if ice formations were remaining until mid day at least then that would give me a… Read More

One photo a day challenge: Day 333. More playtime with light. But I guess that doesn’t really say much since that is essentially what all photography is. Lets rephrase. More playtime with long exposures and moving light. Trying to figure out what to photograph today. I was looking around and saw this snowflake decoration we have. I thought I might be able to do something interesting with it. I set up my… Read More

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 73. We have been experiencing some warmer weather in upstate New York. Most of the snow in our region has melted. More often than not lately the high temperature for the day ahs been above freezing. Spring is a week away. It is almost one of the best times of the year. The time of year when all the new growth begins to emerge. Spring is… 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
