Reeve's Brook - Harriman State Park

Hello Fellow Artists-
I am not certain what my favorite moment of this morning was. It could have been when I set out in the early gray light of morning from Reeve's Meadow. It was a cold morning (but not too cold.) I had the trail to myself and could hear Reeve's Brook babbling in the distance ahead of me. They day was full of promise. It could also have been when I got to the brook and was once again taken by it's beauty as I wandered from spot to spot along the trail finding location after location to photograph. I have gone to this spot dozens of times in all seasons and have almost never suffered the let down of a morning with no great photos to show for it. The morning light came up clear and the brook had plenty of spots with ice and water running over the rocks for me to pick from. My favorite moment could have been when I fired up my computer, sufficiently warmed up and a cup of coffee at the ready I dove in to start my review and editing. As the images came up on the screen even in their raw state I realized I had a another successful morning. Honestly if I had forgotten my camera and just hiked it would still have been a fine morning, but then I could not have shared these images with you. I hope you like them and they inspire you to get out there with your cameras and shoot the glorious views that winter can show you.

Keep Makin' Art
