Since my very first visit to the Niagara Falls many years ago I've been captivated by the trees living literally on the edge in the most inhospitable conditions I can imagine. A tiny island barely accommodating a handful of trees by the edge of the Horseshoe Falls seems like a tough place to live even in summer being constantly attacked by the Upper Rapids of the Niagara River as well as the moisture of the ever present mist. Then in winter, it seems simply impossible. Yet, they are there, year after year wearing a frozen white coat. Is it that combination that makes it possible? The ice coating the trees head to toe protecting them from the inhospitable cold?

Last time we left the Czech Republic after visiting some tourist spots of Prague. This time we're back and in the countryside of Moravia wondering through beautiful vast poppy seed fields. When you catch them in the bloom it's quite a sight easily competing with sunflowers in my opinion. The charm of these fields comes in different forms. They're usually wide sweeping over some picturesque rolling hills setting up a typical European countryside landscape. But there's a lot to see even from up close and often it's the things that do not belong there that make up the complete picture.

The Crack at Sunset, Frozen Lake Erie, Hamburg - Buffalo, NYThe Crack at SunsetFrozen Lake Erie

I had briefly mentioned this sunset outing to the frozen lake a couple posts back (Inside an Ice Crack). In that post, I shared my closing photo of that night. Today, I'll roll back a bit to the moment I came to catch. Having arrived about half an hour before sunset I had time to wonder around and take advantage of the solidly frozen Lake Erie. What do I mean by that?

Without the ice, my movement is limited to the shoreline. With the ice, that restraint is lifted and all of a sudden I am free to wonder in all directions limited just by an initial hesitation before realizing how thick the ice is.

At first, the cracks are an area to avoid but soon I come to realize that's what this sunset is all about. A cold frozen lake, a warm sunset, and a crack in the ice connecting the two.

And then? The confirmation that the Earth is round indeed!

Back to the idea of black and white Thursdays, preferably on film. There's something that draws me back to these old theaters no matter what camera is in my hand. But with a 35mm camera loaded with black and white film, how could I not go there?

Further, this day was like made for black and white. A gentle sprinkling of snow on the streets, puffy snowflakes in the air, snow clouds floating overhead, simply a perfect black and white scene!

In the afternoon I took Route 5 on my way back from downtown Buffalo, NY and enjoyed the views of the frozen lake. Despite the warm days the ice layer seemed endless and ice fishing was in full swing at the Outer Harbor. I thought the fishermen must be nuts being on the ice after such a dramatic warm up. But it was not just one or two. They were everywhere, like mushrooms after rain.

A quick stop at home, tripod and camera to the car, and off I headed to the lake to see it all for myself. After a short walk on the shore I quickly realized I had underestimated the power of cold temperatures. Yes, we've had a recent warm up but the deep freeze before that did its magic. I could not see the end of the ice layer as it stretched all the way to the horizon. And as the day was nearing its end there were many people returning back on their snowmobiles. The ice was not only all around but still very thick. I did not dig a hole and measure but found a few see-through cracks and would guess at least 8 - 10 inches.

I spent most of the time looking for a new and unique sunset composition at a place I've been to many times. While walking on the ice I stayed away from the large cracks. Then, on the way back I had a different idea. Instead of staying away I went right to one of the long and wide cracks thinking of how to best capture it. I followed it for maybe a 100 feet as it was winding left and right when it finally turned in a way that allowed my to take a photo with the post-sunset sky in the background.

For this photo, I laid the camera down right into the crack for the lowest possible point of view. I like how angles like that skew the perspective.

I will admit though, by this point I had wet and frozen pants as the ice was wet on the surface from the warm and sunny day, my knees were frozen to their bones, and I did not have the patience needed to tinker with the camera for the best possible shot. So this was it, the final photo of the night. After that, I packed up, rushed to the car, started the engine and cranked up the heat!

Not Your Sunrise Cliché http://www.danielnovakphoto.com/blog/2018/1/not-your-sunrise-cliche Hawaii became the 50th state to join the United States on August 21, 1959. The capital city is Honolulu (Oahu). The highest point is Mauna Kea at 13,803 feet (4207 meters) (island of Hawaii, aka The Big Island), a dormant volcano last erupting 2460 BC. Mauna Kea is over 33,000 feet (10000 meters) tall, making it the world's tallest mountain measured from its base to the summit; the majority of which is under water. The highest point on Kauai is Kawakini Peak about a mile south of Mt. Waialeale, the volcano that originally built up the island.

Previously from Hawaii: The Beginning - Seaside Pinhole Photography - Tropical Clichés - Windy Drama of a Tropical Morning - Quite an Ad - Searching for Sun and Warmth - Not Your Sunrise Cliché

With the cold front leaving the area only very painfully slowly, there was a benefit of plentiful dramatic clouds in the sky at all times of the day. While those did not provide for your typical island idyll they provided for constantly changing conditions, for more drama, and for different takes on previously photographed subjects.

Getting up for a sunrise is always both exciting and difficult. Then, once outside, it's always just the excitement that remains. Well, not all. Sometimes, doubts prevail for a few more minutes like on this morning. I ask myself questions like why bother getting up for a sunrise when chances of seeing the sun are pretty much at zero. Then, I reach the selected destination and the doubts are quickly gone, rendered absolutely irrelevant.

Instead, my eyes and mind are fully occupied with searching for the perfect spot, the perfect angle, the perfect timing. With waves spilling over the lava rocks it becomes a question of a long exposure vs. action freezing shutter speed, then a process of fine-tuning the exposure length, and an exercise in patience in waiting for the perfect action. Also, do you click the shutter on the way in or out? There number of combinations seems to be endless and the action keeps developing with the day progressing from sunrise to full daylight.

Over Frozen Green Lake, Yates Park, Orchard Park, NYOver Frozen Green LakeYates Park, Orchard Park, NY We are returning a tiny bit backwards here to December when winter was just finding its way to Western New York. As seasons transition I am always on a lookout to capture that in photographs. It's not easy and one has to be ready and go with nature's schedule. It's impossible to negotiate your way out of it, believe me, I tried. Saying "I'll come back here tomorrow with a camera" just absolutely does not work. If you see a magical transition in progress, you either have the camera with you or you better go get it right then and there, not tomorrow.

As I drive by Green Lake once or twice a day I always give it a careful look to see what's going on. As such, I caught it as the initial film of ice was forming one day, had fun capturing it in pictures, and knew I had to keep returning to witness the initial blanket of solid ice, with the camera ready.

And I did. I walked along the shore looking for ways to show the lake transforming from fall into winter. First, I found an area with a broken sheet of ice, which looked wonderful and captivated me for at least 20 minutes. But I did not feel like that was The Image of the day and kept walking.

Once the next scene showed in front of me I knew that was it. The only question that remained was how to best capture it in a still photograph. I kept getting closer and closer and lower and lower with the camera until this photo was possible.

Sunny but not Warm, Buffalo Main Light Lighthouse in Winter, Erie Basin Marina, Buffalo, NYSunny but not WarmBuffalo Main Light in Winter Winter can do wonders along the shore of Lake Erie, especially when the temperatures dip into single digits or even below 0°F. The wind usually coming from the west, thus blowing over the lake and picking up moisture, can become quite an artist and create ice sculptures on anything that comes in its way after making landfall. Rocks, shelters, cars, even grass and sidewalks can turn into picturesque scenes. And fences are no exception.

And that was my theme this morning finding this beauty at the Erie Basin Marina in Buffalo, NY. Strangely, I was alone at the place upon arrival, which contributed to my thorough enjoyment of the scene in front of me. That is what I like about early mornings, or as in this case, freezing mornings when nobody wants to stick their nose out. I had spent about an hour there and the whole time I counted three cars driving by with not a single person getting out. Not even me crawling around in the ice and snow attracted enough attention to get them out!

Wishing you all a wonderful year ahead with an abstract by Mother Nature. While looking for frozen wonders around the Buffalo, NY waterfront I almost stepped on this beauty. At first, I tried to incorporate it into a wide composition of a more traditional shot at the location but eventually got closer, zoomed in, and filled the frame with this winter arrangement.

What does it remind you of? To me, it looked like boiling water that instantly froze. Well, given the temperature, that was rather feasible.

White Winter Tree, Chestnut Ridge Park, Orchard Park - Buffalo, NYWinter TreeChestnut Ridge Park Sometimes, you just don't have a choice and have to go. At least that is what it feels like. And that certainly was the case this Christmas Eve. The day before, warm temperatures have given to a cold front, melting stopped, and the precipitation first turned from rain into a mix of rain and snow, and eventually into snow completely. And this transition, while certainly very unpleasant for driving, worked its magic on the landscape all around. The wintery mix attached itself to all trees, both coniferous and deciduous equally. Within a short while, everything looked like a magical winter wonderland. Later, when it was just snow it added to the decoration with a bit of fluff for an increased dose of festivity.

I watched this carefully and excitedly but with the fading light did not convince myself to rush out and act immediately. Usually, snowy decorations like this to not survive long. One can be lucky and catch nature dressed like this early in the morning but then the slightest wind shakes the snow off and the magic is gone. On this occasion however, since most of the coating was frozen to the trees, it had a little bit more endurance. Even around noon the next day, everything looked wonderful, with a few inches of snow added as a bonus.

And that I could no longer resist. Snow pants, coat, hat, gloves, camera bag, and a tripod and off I was to the nearby Chestnut Ridge Park to see it all first hand. All in all, I only wandered about for an hour or so and found what I came for, even with a little bonus.

First, I went for a wide angle photograph taking in trees on both sides of the path, the snow-covered ground, and the sky above with winter clouds carrying more snow from the lake. Add in the crisp air and it was a perfect winter moment. I liked how I was given the opportunity to capture the different looks of the deciduous and coniferous trees, each prevalent on one side of the path.

Happy with that scene and on the way out of the park, the old tree peeked my interest again. I looked at it a bit on the way in and tried to work it into an overall composition I'd like but could not. Now, approaching it from the opposite direction I did not have to search for a composition, it was right in front of me. All I had to do was move a bit to the left for an improved background and click, the tree was captured.

And yes, I have reversed the order of the two photos here. It just seemed to work better for the flow and for the sizes I wanted to include with this post.

May you all have a wonderful rest of 2017! Enjoy the Beauty that Surrounds You! (#etbtsy)

A while back, I had lived in Prague for about six years and enjoyed every day of it. And even all the years did not come close to me seeing and experiencing everything that the capital of the Czech Republic had to offer. Now I only have a chance to visit once every few years and for a very limited amount of time, which is always painful. So many places to see! The old, the new, all of it!

It is also always very exciting! Landing in the Prague airport and stepping out of the terminal is very special and so is the bus ride into the heart of the city, even if it is just a brief initial tour on the way to the train or bus terminal for a connection. Still!

On this occasion I only had a day to wander the streets of Prague and opted for the Tourist in Prague approach hitting the top touristy spots. And of course, that would be all on foot, a part of the deal and the magic of this ancient city.

First 2017 SnowChestnut Ridge Park When nature turned on the lake effect snow machine for the first time for the 2017 winter season only one place came to mind. I had fun with the same event there last year and it was like a magnet. So rather then trying to come up with an alternative I headed to the Chestnut Ridge park to see the winter wonderland in the woods and by that cottage hiding among the trees.

I got lucky as the snow was coming down pretty hard and that was what I came for.. The conditions were just about perfect! Well at least I thought so. But judging by the empty parking lot maybe others had a different opinion about perfect conditions. I certainly did not struggle with crowds getting in my shot.

I've been trying to accompany my photographs with the occasional video. And once I felt I've captured the mood in a still photograph I've recorded one here too, and I was happy I timed it right. You will see why. I left the original sound in the video. If you can't have sound turned on or if you don't like the sounds of wind, please, mute your speakers. The video did not seem right without the sound though.

Road Trip: Moore, OK after the 2013 Tornado http://www.danielnovakphoto.com/blog/2017/12/road-trip-moore-ok-after-the-2013-tornado Support this blog during this shopping season: Do you like my free content but are not ready to buy a photograph yet?

Oklahoma became the 46th state to join the United States on November 16, 1907. The capital city is Oklahoma City. The highest point is Black Mesa at 4,973 feet.

It was an intense experience. You can only be prepared for something like this so much. Despite all of the news coverage things become more real when you're standing on the spot yourself. Standing on the spot where a whole neighborhood stood just a month ago and now it's been turned into rubble.

The whole scene left behind the May 2013 twister in Moore, OK was really hard to take in. The way one could clearly tell the path was unsettling. A large path of devastation with clear and abrupt edges. One side of the street razed to the ground, the other with some damage but houses still standing. What a phenomenon!

Destruction, After the 2013 Moore, OK TornadoTornado DestructionAfter the 2013 Moore, OK Tornado

It's still terrifying even four years later, and even more so as tornadoes and their severity seems to be more prevalent and more widespread outside of tornado alley, and now even close to home with the EF2 rolling through Orchard Park on July 20, 2017, mere 2 miles from home.

This post prompted me to read more about what happened four years ago now that a lot of the collected data has been processed. And also about the area and the human point of view. Just look at how many tornadoes have been recorded in the Moore, OK vicinity since 1890! I've listed some of that reading below in references.

A pause, a moment of silence.

Buttons in Color, Clay Button PatternButtons in ColorClay Button Pattern Something a little different today as I am presenting the artwork of someone else. Sure, the photographs were taken by me but the objects depicted are clay buttons made by my daughter and therefore it's her deserving the credit.

If you are familiar with my website you know I have a gallery dedicated to Abstracts and Patterns. I am always on a lookout for some cool textures or patterns, whether man-made or natural. So when I saw all of these buttons I knew a photo shoot was coming.

Later on the computer, I also wondered how to further put more focus on the pattern. As many times in the past, removing color accomplished that very well in my opinion. For a comparison, you can see the black and white version below. Clicking on either of the two photos gets you in a large view and you can slide between the two back and forth (with your left and right keyboard arrows) to see which version you like better. Feel free to add a comment in that regard too.

Theater for Rainy Days, Palace Theatre, Hamburg, NYTheater for Rainy DaysPalace Theatre It's raining and the end of the daylight is fast approaching. What to do? It's been a while since I went out chasing theater neons and their reflections in the wet pavement. A quick decision and I was headed for Hamburg to see if I could come up with a new take on the Palace Theatre.

I stayed with the same concept from the last visit adding light trails of the passing traffic to the blue hour scene. But this time, I went across the street to make the streaks more dominant and to get more wet surface between me and the theater. I stayed around for about half an hour trying to catch just the right traffic pattern getting cars in both directions to have both red tail light and white head light trails for variety.

When the blue in the sky faded to black I did not pack my gear yet but went on a stroll through the village instead to scout for future opportunities. And I did not get far before finding one. Right at the main circle on Main and Buffalo Streets I found my next theme. It just had to wait for another day since it was too dark by then. So I let couple days pass and came right back, repeating the game of looking around and trying to time my exposure when cars were coming from all directions. The more directions cars came from and the bigger the variety of their circling around the better the pictures looked.

The calendar moved past mid-November, Thanksgiving is here, the colors have faded, and we have entered what I call the Gray Period ℠. The period will now last until snow covers the ground and trees and adds brightness and cleanliness to the landscape around us. It's during this period that I enjoy looking at colorful views preserved in photographs. Print them large, hang them on the wall, and the grayness can't get to you!
