Bear Mountain Bridge and Hudson Highlands - Infrared

The sky was perfect today with puffy white clouds and a deep blue sky. I have been waiting for just such a day to photograph the Bear Mountain Bridge and Hudson Highlands in infrared.
It was worth the wait! I found the perfect location that starts at the Fort Montgomery Historic Site. A short walk from there is a small hiking bridge across the Popolopen Creek that allows you to shoot from water level without obstruction. I will be back in the Autumn to shoot this same spot in color.

Keep Makin' Art!

Lovely with those cloud formations.

This looks great in IR! It's such a pretty spot.

Thanks Janice and Victoria. It makes me forget how close I am to NYC. Bear Mtn is one of my favorite bridges. I think a lte day shot from this spot with the fall colors will be great.

Definitely like the IR better!

A's Mom (Z's Mom too) I agree. The IR wins hands down, but if I shoot same scene in color with autumn trees all bets are off.
