Seneca Lake, Finger Lakes Region, Watkins Glen, New York, USA

The almost 40-mile long Seneca Lake, the largest of New York state's Finger Lakes, is a popular summer destination. Cottages and homes line the shores where generations of families return again and again each summer. This pier and breakwater is at the southern end of the lake in the town of Watkins Glen.

Though best known today as an auto racing location, back in 1973, Watkins Glen held a Woodstock-like music festival that at the time was the largest music festival gathering ever.



Sailboat ownership - many different required duties.

A boathouse framed by a copse of grand weeping willows.

One of the waterside bar/restaurants is a popular destination for the weekend motorcycle crowd.

Just south of town is the Catharine Creek Fish and Wildlife Management Area, a popular location for birders and other nature lovers. This observation deck is nicely sited to afford an expansive view over the marshland.

As I've said on this blog in the past, if it's raining carry a red umbrella - add to that if it's hot and sunny wear a red shirt - photographers always like the contrast.
