Summer Morning - Shawangunk Mountains

I was going through some images I had taken in the Shawangunk Mountains near New Paltz, NY recently. I had uploaded the images and pretty much let them sit because I felt I mis-timed my hike and got to the spot I wanted to shoot too late in the morning with the sun too high in the sky. I found this shot and realized with a little cropping it was a pretty strong shot.

I will be heading back to the 'Gunks for some autumn shooting armed with a little more knowledge of when I would like to get there to get my shot... Our 'failures' are not failures at all if we learn something for next time.

I also re-learned the lesson that I am constantly forgetting to go back through my images once in a while with a fresh eye. There are bound to be some that call out to you that you passed over the first time.

Keep Makin' Art!

I like the contrasting colours and textures in this.
