Hi Fred and Julie, Thank you for posting theses wonderful pictures. I haven't even begun to look at them all, but what I've seen has been soothing to my soul today. I grew up in the heart of the Finger Lakes. I was born in Waterloo. It's been about 8 or 9yrs since I've been back. I think the Finger Lakes region is one of the most serene and peaceful places in the country. Thank you for taking me back, for just a little while. I'll visit again.
I love to check in and look at your photos. However, this is the first time I took a look at your art work. Great! You both continue to inspire me. Thanks!
Fred saw a recent photo of a red tailed in the FLT , was wondering if you knew of the live webcam currently active at Cornell, detailing all aspects of the red hawlets births...the first one is visible just today, two more on the way...all very amazing, over 6,000 viewers. thought your readers would love it. Also a live cam on the Great Blue Herons at Sapsucker..they are due in a week or so.
Fred, I saw some of your photos on facebook in an F1 gallery. I'm originally from Upstate NY too and frequented Watkins Glen from 1965 to 1973. From the vantage point of some of your shots, I swear we must have been standing next too each other! Great stuff to see.
I have always looked forward to Fred's pictures in the Finger Lakes Times newspaper, and finally decided to look your gallery. I love both Fred's and Julie's collections. In fact, many of your images are similar to those I "try" to take in the Finger Lakes area. You are both truly inspiring to this fairly newcomer to nature photography. Thanks! I will probably cross paths with you at Montezuma or somewhere nearby in the future. Look forward to keeping up with your work!
Julie, your wonderful, deep-focus picture of cracked ice on Canandaigua Lake will make this winter's issue of the Finger Lakes Land Trust newsletter special for me. Thank you so much for your vision.

I love your pictures - I grew up in Corning but now live in North Carolina - it's nice to look at your photos when I'm feeling homesick for the Finger Lakes region.
doug at rochesterwindsports.com. Saw your great windsurfing photo's of a few friends of mine from New Years day on Canandaigua. I was out with them as well. Red and black sail. Could you e mail me and/or let me know if you have more? email@example.com Also, I noticed you mention that you also windsurfer (on fingerlakes1.com) I'd love to have you check out rochesterwindsports.com. a little side project I work on. Now that I have found you on Pbase, I really enjoy a ton of your finger lakes shots.
Your pictures are wonderful.

This is J.C. that has the white deer in my area. Hope things are going well with you. Thanks again for checking out my photos. The white fawn is still here. Its a beautiful doe now. I went out this morning and it and a few other deer watch me get in the van from the woods. They know me now and know Im not going to hurt them. If the white doe makes it through this coming hunting season maybe she will have one or two white fawns. They could be brown too. You have a few people that want it hanging on their wall. I eat deer meat but I couldnt kill a white deer. They are to pretty alive walking around in the woods. I say let it live and have more white. The wildlife service says the albino is lacking normal pigmentation and has pink eyes. They say they not like the white deer you are talking about. The Seneca White Deer are leucistic, meaning they lack all pigmentation in the hair but have the normal brown-colored eyes. Albino deer, which lack only the pigment melanin, have pink eyes and are extremely rare. The Seneca White Deer interbreed freely with the brown deer in the former Depot and appear to share the habitat equally. The white deer on the old Army Base have brown eye just like the brown deer. The wildlife services encourage you to kill the albino deer. They say they pass the genes onto other deer. I cant see what the big deal is. I think they are beautiful. I think they should be protected.

Hi Julie, Yes we do, Let us know what images that you like and I can send you a quote. Sizes are 8X10, 9X12 and 12X18.
Thanks for your interest.
Amazing photographs! do you sell your prints? interested in some of the adirondack and fingerlake photos. Brucejul@yahoo.com
I love your pictures. We have an amazing firefly show going on now in my backyard and I'm wondering whether someone with the right equipment can catch it on film. Best viewing is about 10 p.m. It's worth seeing even if you don't film it. It you're interested, let me know.
I came across your work from a photo of yours on Google Maps, the one of Owasco Lake from the South point. WOW. All of your photos. Sorry to be a pitch man, but are you on deviantArt by any chance. If so, please join our group, we would love to have you: artofthefingerlakes(dot)deviantart(dot)com And, either way, keep up the great work.
I live in Austin Texas. I have lived in Texas since 1973. However,I grew up in Geneva New York. My sister, who lives on Seneca Lake, frequently cuts out your ViewFinder photo and sends them to me. I truly enjoy them, not only because on my ongoing love of the Finger Lakes and of nature,also because I too am an artist. Your photos hang on my refrig for weeks and I gain so much joy from looking at them. Thanks for sharing your sensitivity to the beauty that is all around us. Sincerely, Helen Yole
