This letter was directed to Elaine Taft, the Grand Prize winner of the 13th Annual Photography Contest, which was published in the Winter/Holiday 2014 issue. Elaine’s photo depicted Chimney Bluffs State Park.

Your photo in Life in the Finger Lakes has taken hold of my aesthetic sense. And to think that exotic scene is within driving distance of my home!

But you have captured what the ordinary viewer would miss. Congratulations on waiting – doubtless days – for just the moment. Waves, clouds, light, perspective – that inner self that says NOW!

We visited the Prison City Pub and Brewery in Auburn recently. They’ve only been open a short time. They didn’t have any of their own beer, but their beer selections were good. The food was very good. Nice atmosphere also. We’ll definitely keep them in our beer loop.

We also stopped at Good Shepherds Brewing Co. in Auburn. They are considered a nanobrewery. For a small place, the crowd was very friendly. We’ll have to catch the brewery in Weedsport another time.

Looking forward to see what’s happening with all these microbreweries popping up.

Keep up the great work. Your magazine improves with every issue. We read it from cover to cover and it is always a delight when it appears in our mailbox.

A Fish Tale
In the January/February issue, the Outdoor article titled “Warm Moments on the Cold, Crooked Finger,” had an error on page 48. It was stated that Glen caught a trout that weighed more than 25 pounds. The actual weight was a little more than five pounds. We regret this error.
