Corning night shots

Nighttime in Corning NY is a beautiful time, full of hidden rewards.

I don’t often walk after dark, but when I do the sights and lights remind me that I ought to do it more. Black and white photos are my favorites and after dark shots are close to that effect.

June 2011, I think I took this one at sunset, or just before. Judging from the clouds, it was a darkish day...

September 2011 and an absolutely gorgeous blend of colors.

November 2011. I was moving when I took this, so were the cars and it appears, so was everything else. Actually like the fuzziness of the street and car lights.

A closeup of a Christmas snowflake (taken down finally within the last month).

Chemung River from the south end of the Bridge Street bridge.

Now I’m standing in the middle of the bridge. Look at that sunset!

One evening, mid-April this year, I stepped out of my apartment and saw this...

and this...

finally this...

A few days later, returning from a United Way Celebratory Dinner at the Radisson, I walked west on Corning’s Market Street...

Centerway Square...

On the last leg of my walk home, crossing the bridge to Corning’s northside...


  1. Your photos are once again stunning - that shot of the sunlight breaking through the clouds is pure magic which I always dream NY to be like :)

    1. Good morning CCU. It's early morning in NY State and, as always, your words are a pleasure and an encouragement. Those sunset shots are among my favorites, too. So hard to choose only three out of the 7 or 8 I took in those moments.

  2. Corning looks like a very pretty place. You've taken some lovely pictures to show it off! Thanks for sharing this, Kathleen:)

    1. So nice to hear from you, m'dear. Maybe someday you can visit Corning and we'll take a walk and compare writing ideas!
