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.

Ireland's Changing Skies #1 [Sky Watch Friday]

In the 10 days we toured Ireland, we experienced a wide variety of changes in the sky, which contributed to constant shifts in lighting and atmosphere. We learned that sun, blue skies and white clouds are not always what you want to see. The images below illustrate that point.


The above image was shot through our tour bus window.

I am always inspired to shoot landscape scenes where different regions of lighting are involved. It takes both patience and some luck to get what you want -- in the above case, luck was more of a factor.


This shot was another of my through-the-bus-window series. Yes, it eventually rained, but our spirits remained high.


My last example of how a rainy/foggy day adds to the mood of an image.
