Fahnestock Scenery

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.

Sam’s Point 2 of 2

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.

PFA Sunflower

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.
