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.

Watkins Glen State Park

    Watkins Glen State Park is ca. 80 miles southeast of Rochester. It is a large and magnificent area to walk/hike through. The most popular trail, Gorge Trail, runs through a gorge and contains waterfalls, cascades, streams and pools cut through rock over millennia. From one end to the other, one ascends some 852 steps, so it can get a bit strenuous [for seniors]. But, the views and photo-ops are aplenty. Last week, Rosemarie and I returned to the park after some 40 years absence [last time we walked it was when our girls were all pre-teens]. This trip was made even more special by the fact that I decided to shoot in RAW [+jpg].  I am now converted to RAW....     Here is a selection of shots taken [hand-held] with my Canon 60D, 18-135mm lens.
