A Few Random Things

Some stuff I shot over the last few weeks while I was going to Buffalo, the Albany area, and the Southern Tier. 

Ashford Junction, north of Ellicottville, NY.  Shot way too early in the morning, but at least I had the place to myself.  There's active work going on on the railroad right here, so I'm glad I was able to position myself so the backhoe is unseen behind the building.

Rt 87 bridge over NY146 a few yards from NY9 at Clifton Springs.  A cop stopped to see what I was doing (like a terrorist is going to be so obvious as to drag an SLR up a 30 foot slope.)

Butterfly at Holiday Valley.  I shot this thing while waiting for my first shooters at the IBO Championships.

Some of the Enchanted Mountains in McCarty State Forest as seen from another mountain.  This was shot from the Finger Lakes Trail which is only a  part of the Great Northern Trail which goes from Lake Champlain to North Dakota.

Morning in the Enchanted Mountains.  Shot from US219 in Great Valley north of Salamanca, NY.

International Bowhunting Champioinships 2015

For the second year in a row, I was one of the photographers for the International Bowhunting Championships, held in Ellicottville, NY.  These are some of the shots I got.  I processed them backwards, so the Amateur Championship round shots come first, the Future Bowhunters shootout and I finish with shots from the first two days.

Last Years' Races

I'm currently working on getting work with local 5K, 10K, Family Miles and other runs, walks and bikes.  It occurred to me that I should probably be featuring some of last years' pics here as I make this push.
These are from the Bubble Blast 5K at the State Fair, Vino and the Beasts at both Geneva, NY and Geneva, OH and the Tough Mudder in Andover, NY.  Lots more pics available in the Sports Photography Gallery.

A Few Pet Portraits

Got a couple/few shots over this weekend of some family pets.  I've taken a few pet portraits over the last few years as part of Portrait Scene.  They'll be a part of the all-new Pet Portraits Gallery which I'll populate over the next few weeks.










This is an older one, but I really really like it.

Deathstars, Rochester May 15

These guys played Friday night at Montage, opening for Septic Flesh.  I enjoyed them more than the headliners, if truth be told.  Moonspell was excellent, too.  Their pics come tomorrow, maybe.
These guys are good musicians, but they ain't exactly pretty.
