A wonderful trip to Fahnsetock State Park with Sierra Photo NYC. I took so many pictures that I liked that it was hard to choose which ones to post.
It was a cloudy day which made photography a challenge. I wanted to capture the gloomy mood and bring out the colors.
The flora was striking and surreal with brilliant colors of red blueberry bushes and black pitch pine skeletons set among white rocks and a blue sky.

I found a quartz snake. Also Katydids, stinkbugs, and many Crickets.
I went on a trip to Sam’s Point area in Minnewaska State Park, Cragsmoor, New York in the Shawangunk Mountains with a small group of Sierra Photo NYC members on October 10, 2019.
The weather was delightful and I enjoyed the trip very much. The Ice Caves are spectacular, but the trail is full of stairs and ladders up and downs and requires a lot of exertion.
The light entering into the crevices of the sedimentary conglomerate rocks makes some dramatic photographs.
Despite the heat I took loads of photographs at the Planting Fields Aroboretum. This is one of many (more to come). I feel it looks better on its own. I often like to desaturate green.
