New York Frozen

Today's cold weather in upstate New York reminded me of another January day in Taughannock Falls State Park near Ithaca. This waterfall is magnificent in any season but winter brings out its stark beauty.

Not sure if #WaterfallWednesday is still around and curated by +Eric Leslie as it has been a long time since I have had one to share.

Good stuff Scott. Thinking of heading down there tomorrow.  Passed through earlier in the week and grabbed a few snaps of the Upper Falls.

Frozen Dome Classic

They said it could not be done but the Syracuse Crunch staff, Syracuse University, Onondaga County and the City of Syracuse pulled it off. Attendance for the event was 30,715 which broke the US indoor record for a professional hockey game. With SU basketball holding the indoor attendance record for an on campus venue, the owner of the Crunch (one Howard Dolgan who I believe is a long lost son of P.T. Barnum) has proclaimed Syracuse is Pound for Pound, THE Best Sports City in America.

Syracuse Crunch played the Utica Comets in an American Hockey League (AHL) game at the Carrier Dome on the Syracuse University campus in Syracuse, New York on Saturday, November 22, 2014. Syracuse won 2-1.

Taughannock Falls near Ithaca, NY today. Most ice build up I have ever seen here. Yes, those are people down there.

Taken with a Nikon D7100 and downloaded to my iPhone via an Eye-Fi card. Processed in the #Snapseed app.

Goal Interference

This should go into the +Scott Kelby Hall of Shame.  Wish I could have called the referee for interference.

Syracuse Crunch Joel Vermin (92, far left in whte) scores on a deflection from a shot by Nikita Nesterov (89, not pictured) past Hartford Wolf Pack goalie Mackenzie Skapski (70, not pictured) in American Hockey League (AHL) action at the War Memorial Arena in Syracuse, New York on Friday, December 5, 2014.

Hockey Rink in the Carrier Dome

For the first time EVER there is a hockey rink being constructed inside the famous Carrier Dome on the Syracuse University campus.  The Frozen Dome Classic will be held here this weekend featuring five hockey games, celebrity autograph signings, stunt by Steve-O of Jackass movie fame, one fan will get a chance at $444,444 during intermission, NHL Hockey Hall of Fame trophies and displays and, I believe, the indoor professional hockey game attendance record will be shattered. The Crunch are within 1,000 as of this morning.

For more information, go here -->

One ticket gets you into ALL the games and events.

I publish a photoblog called Views Infinitum where I chronicle the year in photos every week, share photography tips and challenge my guests (that's you!) with bi-monthly photo assignments. Stop by and have a look!

Been photographing for over 35 years. Man, that makes me sound old! Let's call it experienced, shall we? For most of that time I have been using Nikon cameras and lenses.  Currently using a D700.

By day, I am a mild-mannered IT Manager for a manufacturer of Pepsi products in Syracuse, NY.
