Morning Light Art

1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, Clayton, NY

The morning after my friend’s wedding I wandered around the river’s edge before sunrise. My original plan was to spend more time exploring the area but my son was making an unexpected trip home for the day so I grabbed some morning light images and headed home.

I loved the walkway next to the hotel. There was plenty of chalk and anyone/everyone was encouraged to create some art. I tried to capture some of what I found in the morning light. I also wanted to highlight the location of the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel. It is literally, right at the water’s edge. I’m thinking I need to return for more photography… 🙂

Sunrise Through the Glass

Hinckley Reservoir
Through the Glass – TTG01

Saturday was supposed to have occasional rain. I read that as there would be some good cloud representation in the sky for the sunrise. It also meant I could put off doing the laundry for a day, but that is a different story. I hadn’t been up to Hinckley Reservoir in a couple of months. I wasn’t positive there would be anything worth photographing but it isn’t far and definitely worth the drive. I also knew there are plenty of rocks near the dam and I wanted to play with the Lensball again. I think everything worked out well for me…

Peekaboo Sun

Bellamy Harbor Park, Rome, NY

I’m sure a big portion of my reasons for always going to Bellamy Harbor Park is the distance from my house. I can be here in fifteen minutes. But, it is also a great location for sunrise/sunset images as the canal is aligned East to West and as the sun traverses the seasons it will rise/set in different areas of the park. I suppose it doesn’t hurt that I’m a fan of water, reflections and silhouettes in my images…

Bellamy Ball

Bellamy Harbor Park

After a few days of experimenting with my new Lensball I think I finally understand the conditions I need to be in to capture some good images. It was not as intuitive as I thought it would be. After the gym this morning I headed over to my favorite local spot, Bellamy Harbor Park, to see what kind of sunrise images I could capture. I like how this one turned out…

Big Picture

Big Bend, Letchworth State Park

I have probably droned on about my trip to Letchworth State Park a little too much but I am still processing all the amazing views I was able to capture. This early bird managed to catch a lot of worms that morning. There was barely a breeze in the air and I was able to capture a beautiful panoramic view of the Big Bend area of the park. The Genesee River does a complete about face and in early June, the sunrise is right behind the opposite wall of the gorge.

This is a six image panoramic captured about 15 minutes after the official sunrise. The sun was above the horizon but still behind the gorge wall. Luckily for me, the few clouds in the sky collected the early light and helped paint the sky for me. I couldn’t help but stand and enjoy the show.

Morning’s Light

Big Bend, Letchworth State Park

I was running around the Big Bend area of Letchworth State Park for quite a while on Saturday. There were so many views to capture. I knew as soon as the sun rose above the horizon I would have another set of images to capture. I followed the stone safety wall further into a wooded area and found this view as the sun was peeking around the gorge wall. I’ll say it again… definitely worth getting up early and the three hour drive.
