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 3

This past year, I have been bitten by a waterfalls bug. That is quite nice because it has afforded opportunities for day trips/picnics/walks around western and central NY. My wife enjoys such outings, so she is much more patient with my setting up for photographing. In the course of these excursions, we've learned how varied the falls are; i.e. they come in all sizes, from low cascades to majestic falls. The images below are representative of the smaller varieties. The top image comes from Corbetts Glen Park, which is located less than 10 min. from us. To get the 'cotton effect' of the water, it was shot with a 10-stop neutral density filter mounted [15 sec., f/8, ISO 100]. I cropped the image to generate the 5:1 aspect ratio panoramic view. Yes, one can make panoramas without stitching multiple images. By the way, this lovely little falls is aptly named Postcard Falls.


The images below are those of Hector Falls [about 2 hour to the south of Rochester]. The bottom one was made with the ND10 filter [20 sec., f/13, ISO 100]. Some think the cotton effect is 'kitschig', but I like it. I'd be interested in hearing your opinion. For comparison, the image just above it was made without the filter [1/350 sec., f/11, ISO 100].
