The best public place in the Finger Lakes for outdoor photography

The beauty of the Finger Lakes is a fantastic thing to capture on film. It lends itself well to being photographed by professional and amateur photographers alike. Here our local innkeepers share their recommendations for the best public place in the Finger Lakes for outdoor photography.

Watkins Glen Gorge - is fantastic for outdoors photography. Obviously, there are endless possibilities for taking pictures of moving water, but there are also many contrasts in texture and lighting. With the different seasons there are great foliage and flower shots begging to be taken. The deep ravine and water creates interesting lighting and backgrounds for portraits. Best advise - take plenty of film (or memory) when you hit the trail! Located at the Southern end of Seneca Lake. ~ Burney & Susan Baron - Los Gatos Bed & Breakfast

Grime's Glen - The views are spectacular any season of the year. You have to hike to appreciate the beauty too which makes it a challenge worth while. The waterfalls are almost breathtaking every season of the year and the deer are so tame they almost eat from you hand. It is up Located on Vine St. just off route 21 south in Naples at the Southern end of Canandaigua Lake. ~ Fran - Ambroselli's Villa Serendip B&B

Upper Robert Treman State Park - (Also known as Enfield Glen) The upper portion of this park starts off with a simple forest walk and magically transforms to what our guests have described as the land of the Hobbit. Incredible rock carvings that only nature could have done. Forest, streams and waterfalls, make wonderful photography subjects. Located South of Ithaca at the South end of Cayuga Lake. ~ Steve and Kathy Wirt - Wine Country Cabins Bed and Breakfast

Rt 21 outside of Naples - The Finger Lakes abound with opportunity for taking great photographs. I don't have any particular place, but the stop along the high road (rt 21) on the way to or from Naples provides a beautiful vista of Canandaigua Lake. But truly, any stop along the road will provide the perfect opportunity for a picture perfect postcard. ~ Sheryl Mordini - 1795 Acorn Inn

County Road 12 (Naples Road) - There are so many throughout the Finger Lakes Region! One such place is County Road # 12 in Naples where you can look across Canandaigua Lake at Bare Hill, south toward the Hi Tor Wildlife Management area and north towards Canandaigua. ~ Nancy & Al - Gorham House Bed & Breakfast

Kershaw Park - I would have to say overlooking Canandaigua Lake by Kershaw Park. There's something about having a water background that seems to improve outdoor photos. Located at the Northern end of Canandaigua Lake ~ Robin & Michael Grentus - A Wolfpack Bed 'n Breakfast

Montezuma Wildlife Complex - The wildlife, wild flowers and views over the various ponds make wonderful subjects for photographers. The"Friends of Montezuma W C" also have a yearly contest and welcome entries of photos taken there by amateur photographers. Located at the Northern end of Cayuga Lake ~ Glenda Nash - Gentle Giants Bed and Breakfast

Bully Hill Winery - Our favorite spot for photography is just outside Bully Hill winery, but the Finger Lakes is so's tough to pick one spot. Located on the Southwestern hill overlooking Keuka Lake~ Cristina & Fernando Diaz - The Farr Inn

Abbey Farm - If you have children, the best place for photos is Abbey Farm. A picture of your child holding a baby pig is priceless. Located near Flint on 5 & 20 between Geneva and Canandaigua. ~ Debbie Abbey - The Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast

Sonnenberg Gardens - We think a great place for public photography is anyplace at Sonnenberg Gardens. Located in Canandaigua at the North end of Canandaigua Lake. ~ Jack and Donna - Oliver Phelps Bed and Breakfast
