Another Sunday... another 5am alarm calling me out to the woods to photograph the amazing sites in my part of New York State. Today my trusty side-kick (my brother in law Robbie) roused himself from slumber to join me. Our journey took us to the Shawangunk Mountains (the Gunks). These mountains are known for great rock climbing and hiking. We took a short hike into the Minnewaska State preserve to photograph Awosting and Sheldon falls. We arrived just after sunrise and found that the while only an hour north of us... the fall colors were already well along and made the perfect backdrop for these two very pretty and accessible falls on the Peter's Kill Creek which runs near the entrance to the preserve. I feel quite fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world. I wonder at the vistas of the Hudson Valley and Catskills every time I find my self hiking their trails.
Keep Makin' Art!
