I live on the southeast corner of Lake Ontario in Oswego County, NY. Our snowfalls are legendary. When the cold winds from Canada blow across the relatively warm waters of the lake under the right conditions, lake effect snow develops. I’ve seen it come down at the rate of 4-5 inches per hour. It makes for some stunning winter landscapes. Except for the wintertime, the sun sets in clear view across the lake to the northwest. This geographical arrangement produces world-class sunsets from time to time when clouds are present above a clear horizon line. In addition, there are several beautiful sets of bluffs overlooking the lake scattered across the southern shoreline between Oswego and Rochester. The bluffs allow spectacular views over the lake. I never tire of photographing from these unique locations.
