Unstable

Delta Lake State Park

Although Saturday might have started a little rough as I watched the clouds win the race to the horizon and obscure my sunrise at Hinckley Reservoir, the day as a whole was wonderful. As sunset approached I debated as to which location would provide me the best view, Delta Lake or Bellamy Harbor Park. In the end, after considering the position of the sun at sunset, I chose to go to Delta Lake.

With the stretch of warmer weather we had experienced I did not expect to see as many people as there were out fishing on the lake. I’m not positive if I would have walked out onto the ice. I hugged the shoreline as I positioned myself to capture the setting sun along with some interesting cracks in the ice. Yeah, definitely sure I will not be walking on the ice any time soon.

No Swimming or Wading

Delta Lake State Park

The first proper sunset of winter. I was being very lazy Sunday afternoon. Sitting on the couch reading while my cat Oliver was staring me down trying to convince me it was time for dinner. The sky caught my eye out the front window and I realized I had a good chance for a nice sunset. There was less than an hour before the sun would drop below the horizon but plenty of time for me to make it to my stand by location, Delta Lake State Park. Poor Oliver would have to wait until I got back…

The End at the Beginning

Taughannock Falls State Park

I was looking through my photos for the year and found this one I had marked for processing but never finished. This is the small cascade waterfall at the end of Taughannock Creek before it empties into Cayuga Lake. It is also the first thing you see when you walk the gorge trail at the park. When the flow is the right level, this waterfall is the first photographed when I visit the park.

Summer Lost

Delta Lake State Park

Labor Day weekend typically marks the end of the summer season at Delta Lake State Park. I’ll be going up to the 1000 Islands area of New York today for a wedding and will miss the annual bonfire on the beach but I did manage to get over to the park and capture a beautiful sunset image. The swimming goggles appear to have been washed up on the shore and they felt like a good statement for the image. Although there have not been a lot of people at the park when I go to find a sunset, after this weekend there will be even less. Next stop… Autumn.
