Springtime in the Finger Lakes

It is springtime and I am feeling a longing for the days I spent photographing the numerous waterfalls in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.  I have spent many years of my life hiking and photographing in this region.  Each year as soon as the ice went out and the spring run off began I would spend countless days hiking up the various gorges in search of a new waterfalls to photograph.  It was always an exhilarating experience to feel the freshness of the springtime air and to hear the pounding of the water falling off the cliffs and rocks above.  After a long day of hiking and photographing I would come home with soggy feet and numb fingers, but always felt a great sense of satisfaction that I got to spend another day in one of my favorite places.
