Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Sunset on the Erie Canal [Sky Watch Friday]


This sunset was shot from the other side of the bridge at Schoen Place, shortly before the moonrise pics [scroll down a few spaces]. What is unique, for me, is that this image represents my first foray into the world of HDR. It may sound mystical, but it was deceptively simple. I used three shots [bracketed by two f-stops] and fed them into the software -- Dynamic Phototo HDR [only $54] -- This is one of the resulting images. Cool beans! So, if I can do it, it can't be too difficult'
