Summer Daydream

SAILBOATS3

The weather has been so dreary over the weekend that we decided to take a look back to sunnier days and sort some photos from a boating trip around Henderson Harbor over the summer. How did you stay warm this weekend?

The Best Of The Rest

Fireflies

For every post on I Love Upstate, there are at least a thousand photographs that don’t ever get viewed by any one but us. Since we have collected so many, we decided to share some of our most favorite miscellaneous shots from the past two months. From experimenting with extended exposures to jumping out of the car to get a shot from the side of the road, these shots show what we are doing when we aren’t exploring new territory. We hope you enjoy them!

I took a few quick shots of the Supermoon this morning around 5am and thought I would share them. How did it look where you are?

The Lake Fever

Open google maps, find a nearby lake and type the closest road into the GPS. That pretty much sums up the last 48 hours…minus a couple of naps and a few hours of editing. We spent an incredibly low key weekend wandering about in search of places we had only ever heard about, but never had a chance to visit. These spots were some of the more quiet local secrets that just happen to be right in our backyard. For two days we drove around finding lakes we had never seen, listening to The Tragically Hip and hopping out on the side of the road to take photos of the scenery. From the Wetland Preserve at Black Pond (also known as El Dorado Beach) to a picturesque lake you would swear was in the heart of the Adirondacks (actually only about 15 minutes from the St. Lawrence River), we caught the lake fever hard…and we don’t care who knows it! Check out the highlights:
