The Oswego Lighthouse

The Oswego lighthouse has quite a history (See "The Lighthouse Digest") I love taking photographs of it because it continually presents a new & different image each time I see it. The changes in sky, the lake and the seasons all provide an infinite variety of backgrounds. More lighthouse photos further down the page

The 2014 CNY Great Pumpkin Festival - October 4-5.

The Pumpkin Festival weigh in was on a wet Saturday morning. Watermelons, Tomatos, and, of course, Pumpkins. This year the New York State record for a pumpkin was broken by Karl Haist - 1725.5 pounds! Photos and more information here.

 

The Oswego Dragon Festival, 2014

Again, it has been a long time since I've updated my Oswego page. My excuse - I've been away on a long 304 day trip around the country. One of the first things happening after I returned is the 3rd Annual Dragon Festival. Boats with a crew of 22 paddle a 200 meter race. Here are a couple of photos of the preliminaries; more at The Third Annual Oswego Dragon Festival pages.

Harborfest, 2013

I have to admit I haven't updated this page in quite awhile - part of the reason is I've been out of town. In any case, Harborfest is here & I'm taking lots of photos of all of it. A link to my Harborfest page.

Sunday, January 20, 2013 - Winter Storm

While there was little snow (at least so far) the wind is putting a bit of a chop on the lake. Some photos from this morning; (More here)

Saturday, September 29, 2012 - The 21st CNY Pumpkin Festival

It has been awhile since I have updated this page - I've been traveling around the US for the last 4 1/2 months. This year's Pumpkinfest broke records - The largest pumpkin in the 21 year history of the Pumpkin Festival, and even better, A New York & United States record Squash @ 1221.5 lbs!

Saturday, September 29, 2012 - Fort Ontario Reenactment

During the shooting at the Pumpkinfest weigh in I could hear cannons going off at the fort. After the weigh in I drove over to the fort & walked through what looked to be a Cival War reenactment. While they were done firing cannons, I did get a few photos:

Sunday, March 6, 2011 - Spring?

Well we did have two days of warm, sunny weather, but the only sign of spring here in Oswego is the flooding of Lakeshore Road. Even Rudys isn't open yet!

Well, the waves are still crashing today (the 27th) but rather than more of the lighthouse, here is a wave created rainbow:

Lots of things happening this weekend & next. The Salmon River Fish Hatchery held an Open House on Saturday, September 25th. More information & photos

I stopped on my way back from the fish hatchery and Salmon River Falls at Mexico Point Park. I have passed the sign for the park many times on 104B, but never drove to the end of the road. It was well worth the stop. The park itself is beautiful, and an added attraction is Casey's Cottage.

I have not updated this page in quite awhile, but now is the time! The Festival of Sail is coming to Oswego June 25 - June 27. This is your chance to tour a Tall Ship, go for a sail on Lake Ontario in the Lynx, or just enjoy a weekend at the festival. I have more information & more photos of the festival at my Festival of Sail Thursday page.
