Winter-Scape Taughannock Falls

Winter-Scape Taughannock Falls

Share

The recent snow and frigid air may keep some people inside, but a friend and I decided to venture to Taughannock Falls to view the winter-scape. Taughannock Falls is located just North of Ithaca and is 215 ft tall which makes it the highest single waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.     The falls can be viewed from a lookout just North of the falls, which provides a spectacular view of the small portion of Taughannock creek just before…

Peace on the Lake

During my stay at Sunny Point, I looked forward to the evenings.  There was such Peace on the Lake. Despite starting my residency over an active labor day weekend, Keuka Lake became calm and peaceful in the evening.  Once the Holiday weekend was over, the nights were even more serene.  One night there was a storm on the horizon that drew me outside to witness.  The sky was amazing.  The sun had faded and it was now the blue hour of…

Paws at the Gallery

Paws at the Gallery

Share

We have all seen scene’s in movies of actors at a gallery all dressed up with a stiff upper lip and sipping champagne as they peruse the art.  Dog paws at the gallery would be the last thing you would think of. Well, at the Arts Center of Yates County, you will be pleasantly surprised to be met by Cara, a friendly chocolate lab with a wagging tail and gentle demeanor.  She gives a welcoming and down to earth feel…

10 days as an Artist In Residence

10 days as an Artist In Residence

Share

In Sept, I was granted an amazing opportunity. I was offered an artist in residency by the Arts Center of Yates County (YCAC). It was an amazing experience and I took away more from the experience than I could have imagined. When I applied for the residency, I was drawn by the beauty of the residence and area, excited about my proposed project. I also hoped-for a little time for reflection and rejuvenation. The project I proposed was photographing business…

After what…
