One of the nicest places to hike in the winter is Taughannock Falls State Park. The park features a 1 mile trail that is pretty level and relatively easy to navigate even in the snow. And as a reward for braving the cold and the snow there is the 200+ foot waterfall to view at the end of the trail. The waterfall is quite a site throughout this time of year as… Read More

Winter is a time of year when I can really struggle in creating new photography. I am much less adventurous in winter. And my photography probably suffers for that. I always want to take more winter landscape photographs, but somehow never seem to make it happen. Getting out and actually creating some nice winter scenes always makes me happy and fulfilled. For anyone else whose photography drops off during winter I wanted… Read More

I always like to check out new spaces. This was my first time at Hemlock Lake. I look forward to going abck. I was lucky to have this beautiful winter scene to photograph. Snow covered levee. Frozen Lake. Geese all about. There was a large flock of geese on the lake. There are two flocks of gees flying in towards the lake off in the distant sky. I wasn’t quite sure what… Read More

Always take a minute to look up. You never know what might be hanging over your head. When I get out for photography in winter I like to look for interesting ice formations. Icicles are obviously a good choice when you can find them. Fortunately in our area there are a variety of gorges to visit and look for interesting icicle formations. These icicles were hanging from the gorge wall at Watkins… Read More

Big fluffy dogs often love being outside in the winter. Snow on the ground. Cold crisp day in March. Nothing better than trotting around the yard and enjoying the day if you are a big fluffy chow mix dog. This is a dog my dad had named Chewing. Such a friendly loving dog. I always enjoy am opportunity to photograph a fury family member. Photo details: Nikon D300. Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. Focal… Read More

I love to try new things and on this day I got a twofer. I put snowshoes on my feet for the first time ever. And then I went and ran a 5k wearing said snowshoes. I don’t know if I would have participated in this event otherwise, but I made a commitment to myself to run all the events in the Finger Lakes Running Club trail series and the Super Frosty… Read More

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
