Description 50% of my profits from sales of this photograph on ImageKind will be contributed to the fight against Cancer.Under a crystal blue September sky, my wife and I climbed into the gorge of Bear Swamp Creek to the foot of this waterfall past the site of a distillery where, years ago, locals used to frequent using a 'jug path.' The creek is strictly protected as part of the water source for Syracuse, flowing from the Skaneateles Highlands past historical villages such as New Hope. Before merging with Skaneateles Lake, the creek traverses this 90 foot fall, call Carpenter Falls. You need to climb the steep slopes of the gorge for this unobstructed view. It is even possible to climb to the ledge behind the water. Standing on the ledge, the stream passes 50 feet overhead. It is a lovely view down the gorge in all seasons.This site is protected by the Finger Lakes Land Trust.
Michael Stephen Wills, Ithaca, New York Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement My photographic style centers on the use of natural light to visualize emotion and evoke memory. The evolution of my style began early in the year 2002, with an imperative to capture personal and fleeting memories.
My son and I traveled to New York City, to view the first Saint Patrick's Day parade after September 11, 2001. My work from that parade was so successful and satisfying (see "New York Fire Department, Saint Patrick's Day 2002") I just never stopped.
In the years since, I have discovered creation techniques similar to an artist painting on canvas. For example: view my Fine Art print "Cochise Dawn". It is from a 64 megapixel image. This means the closer you gaze, the more detail and surprises are revealed.
