entrance cascade (colour and b&w)

Entrance Cascade

Entrance Cascade (B&W)

in days gone by, this image would have depicted part of the entrance amphitheatre of watkins glen state park. today, it is simply known as the ‘main entrance’ from the parking lot off of franklin street. interestingly, it is not until you get rather close to the entrance tunnel (not in frame – off to the right) that one notices the waterfall.

counter-intuitive as it may be, this waterfall is the last one on glen creek and the gorge rail. from this entrance you do indeed start at the end, as it were… so here we have entrance cascade under the sentry bridge, surrounded by massive sculpted rock walls.

the gorge trail is approximately 1.5 miles long from this point, making it a gorgeous 3-mile hike along glen creek, there and back through water-sculpted rock and 19 waterfalls.

lakeside tree

Lakeside Tree

a long-awaited trip to watkins glen in the finger lakes region of new york state finally materialized this past fall. i had driven through the region in the past and remember the charm of the towns that we passed through. this short trip however, was for visiting the watkins glen state park and for photographing it.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found this tree at the waterfront.

prior to reaching the park, i scoped out the area a little to find out what else was around. i stopped at the southern end of seneca lake at warren w. clute memorial park (aka lakeside park) and found these two trees at the waterfront.

city hall lights (colour and b&w)

nicely lit as dusk was settling in, this is the art deco-styled buffalo city hall building. after scoping out the area around, i setlled on this vantage point to photograph it. it is a 32-story building and measures approximately 378 feet from street level to the tiptop of the tower. not only is it one of the tallest buildings in western new york, but it is also one of the tallest municipal buildings in the usa.

from across the lake (colour and b&w)

From Across The Lake (Colour)

From Across The Lake (B&W)

the jokes are no more. at least that is what i can tell… long the butt of many jokes, buffalo has made an amazing comeback! with its close proximity to home in st. catharines, i’ve been able to go on a few visits to explore ‘the queen city’. granted, i haven’t gone into full explorer mode yet, but what i have seen is a city on the rise… revitalized, chic and trendy neighbourhoods such as elmwood village and allentown are wonderful to visit and explore. the downtown is clean and the architecture is a feast for the eyes!

in any event, this is the buffalo skyline as photographed from across the lake in fort erie, ontario. admittedly it took a few attempts to get a good vantage point, but i think i found one! ūüėČ

mist rising

Mist Rising

a¬†trip to niagara falls was always a treat – i would usually hit it a couple of times a year. now of course, i am living in st. catharines, ontario and am a mere 15 minute drive to the falls anytime i like… this was photographed in august of summer 2015 on a fireworks display night. i usually got there about 2 hours before the show and hoped for a beautiful sky and light over the falls. this night did not disappoint!

from the tower

From The Tower

after my twelve day jaunt in newfoundland, i spent about a week or so with my son kicking around southern ontario. our first stop was niagara falls Рone of my favourite parts of the province because it is so beautifully scenic during all seasons. here we have the american falls in the foreground and a part of the canadian horseshoe falls at the back right of the photograph, captured with  long exposure from the observation tower at niagara falls state park in western new york.
