DescriptionThis iconic footbridge and waterfall is cherished by generations of Cornell students and alumni.When you hike Cascadilla Gorge you traverse 400 feet of elevation from the foot in Ithaca, New York through the climb out onto the Cornell University Campus. In that quarter mile are six major water falls. Here is pictured a stone arch footbridge over the creek behind a fall near the mid-point of the walk. The bridge is a favored meeting and gathering place, students set up their easels and friends chat. On a perfect September afternoon I set up mid-creek and waited for the perfect moment captured here.
Michael Stephen Wills, Ithaca, New York Member Since February 2008 Artist Statement 50% of my profits on selected photographs are donated to the Fight Against Cancer. Selected prints are available throughout my galleries and identified in the print description.
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.
