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.

The Shequaga Falls

   The area to the south and southeast of Rochester is known as the Finger Lakes Region. They are are beautiful, dotted with scores of vineyards and wineries on their eastern and western shores. In addition, there is an abundance of state and local parks, and many contain waterfalls. Moreover, many of the surrounding towns contain one or more falls, which was important for industry and the construction of a varietuy of mills in their vicinity. The images below are of the Shequaga Falls [in the town of Montour Falls], a native American name meaning 'tumbling waters'. In order to include the base of the falls in the topmost two images, I had to get in close. Consequently, the upper portion of the falls  [156-feet high] was obscured. The third image gives a slightly better view. This post is one of a line of waterfall images that I intend to continue over time.
