Shake on the Lake, a Shakespearean troupe from Perry, is wrapping up its eighth season of touring Western New York with free and low-cost performances of William Shakespeare's "As You Like It."

Typically, the performances are at outdoor venues and Thursday the company was planning to perform in Centennial Park. But yesterday's rain drove them indoors, to the Steiner Theater at Genesee Community College.

The show opened with a series of song performances to warm up the audience.

Yesterday's performance was free thanks to a donation from Tompkins Bank of Castile.

Three goats at Pully's Farm Market in Le Roy this afternoon stick their heads through the fence of their pasture to chew on grass on the other side, which is apparently greener and tastier.

Below, a tractor on a little bump of a hill next to the parking lot at Pully's.

We're fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the state and we've enjoyed some sunshine recently (though, a bit too humid). Yesterday, I took a little drive after the Oakfield parade and came back with these shots.

It was a beautiful morning in Genesee County on my drive back from the fire in Le Roy.

The field and mist above is off of Circular Hill Road near the fire scene, and below a horse on a property off of Transit Road in Stafford, next door to where I stopped for a barn sale.

I drove around a bit this afternoon with the explicit goal to take some landscape pictures of Genesee County in black and white. It turned out there really wasn't enough snow on the ground to get the look I was after, but I like this shot from East Road in Batavia.

Today is stormy, but yesterday was a beautiful day and it came with a pretty gorgeous sunset. I stopped on South Main Street Road next to the Tonawanda Creek for this picture.
