Welcome/Willkommen!

Hello and welcome. Hope you enjoy the images I have posted. Please do not reproduce them without my permission. Most are available as note/greeting cards or as prints/enlargements. Thank you for visiting my site and your comments.
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.

Sedona Skies [Sky Watch Friday]

 After a brief sojourn at home following our return from Germany, my wife and I headed out for another vacation--this time to Arizona. Although we had taken a marvelous Road Scholar tour last year through northern Arizona, there were still places/things left to be seen/done. So, we went back, but on our own. The ‘red rock country’ of Sedona was our first prolonged stop. The top image was shot from our balcony -- of course, we did not always catch such an awesome sky, as is evident from the lower image. That was shot in the early morning as we were driving toward Cathedral Rock [it consists of two massive rocks and two or three narrow vertical rock spires in between them]. As we came around a bend, I was stunned by the fog shroud in the distance. I had to pull over, get out and start shooting. This is the image I like best; and it is not typical of those you see of Cathedral Rock, perhaps the most photographed site in the Sedona area. Anyway, I will post more images from Arizona in the coming weeks.
