Sunny Days & Starry Nights in Sackets Harbor



Now that the wedding festivities have died down and everything is back to normal in our world, we have been going through some of the summer photos we never got around to looking at. We came across the following from a beautiful day out on the water and a bunch of photos from our night shot series we had been experimenting with at the time, and thought they were too pretty not to share. We can’t wait to get back out with the camera equipment to explore new destinations!

Oswego Harborfest 2012


The moon rises over Harborfest in Oswego, New York.

This weekend marks the 25th anniversary of Oswego’s Harborfest Celebration. We stopped down last night to have an amazing dinner at Vona’s restaurant and take some photos of the festivities. Hit the link to read more about Harborfest and to see a schedule of events for the next couple of days.¬†http://www.oswegoharborfest.com/

The Best Of The Rest


Fireflies at twilight

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?

One If By Air, Two If By Sea…

Beach II

After spending an entire lifetime in and around boats, when the weather begins to change I will inevitably start dreaming about boating. This year I had my first boating dream in the middle of March and almost tossed the boat in the water during the spring heat wave, but heard the word snow in the forecast and chickened out. So after what had seemed like the longest wait ever, yesterday afternoon Scott, Mr. Jackson and I headed down to spend a very lovely evening in Sandy Pond. We weren’t out long, maybe an hour, but the water was like glass and we were almost the only ones on it. We stopped over to a very sandy beach on the shore of Lake Ontario and walked the length of it as the sun sank in the sky and we dreamed about all of the fun we will have in the months ahead. We even caught a fleeting glimpse of Mike Williams (it could have been!) in the sky as we headed back toward the boat. I also made a very short video of the boat ride…If only every night could be so delightful…sigh*
