Upstate New York Photography - July 2010


Once again, I had a fantastic upstate New York family summer vacation. I spent five nights in Point Breeze in western New York and five nights at Tupper Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. I enjoyed a leisurely drive into the Adirondacks and exited the Throughway to head north at Rome, and this year, a welcomed surprise was seeing fields of radiant sunflowers. Of course, I had to pull over for a few minutes to take their pictures, and wondered how nice it must look at sunrise and sunset.

Scenery, wildlife and fly fishing were great in both locations, north and south, and it was fun trying to balance time with family, friends, fishing and photography. Hex mayflies were hatching at Tupper Lake, making the fishing relatively easy, including bass and bluegills on dry flies. I fished Oatka Creek and Spring Creek in western NY and the Ausable River in the Adirondacks with my friend Luke. It was a great trip!
