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.

Waterfalls 2 [Sky Watch Friday]


  Time to move out of the city and into the region surrounding Rochester, NY. Western and Central NY abound with parks, lakes and waterfalls. Previously, I have posted images of some local waterfalls and now I nwant to add new ones. Depending on the specific location, a waterfall may be observable simply from the street/parking lot or it may require a considerable hike to get to. The images posted here fall into the easily accessible group. The Ludlowville Falls [ca. 40 feet high] can be shot right from a corner of the parking area.




A relatively easy descent along a narrow path led almost to the base of the falls, where a lone fisherman grappled with his tangled line.  This panorama was not generated by 'stitching' multiple images together. Rather, I cropped the original image to generate a 5:1 aspect ratio.





Ithaca Falls [150 feet high] required only a brief walk from the parking area.
