I finally got around to developing a roll of film I exposed on my way home from the AIPAD show in NYC in April. The sky was very active with a late afternoon cloud show, and I found a place to pull off the Palisades Parkway to investigate the Hudson and the the clouds. I liked this negative more than the others each of which were quite different because the sky was changing very rapidly. It's often easy to see what made the Hudson River School painters so inspired. It is an astonishingly beautiful scenic river with its mountainous banks and verdant forests.

Hi John,
My daughter will soon be starting college in, of all places, Poughkeepsie. Having seen so many of your Hudson river area pictures, I now have a good excuse to explore the area myself.

Thanks for the comment, Steve. The mere fact that you are able to spell "Poughkeepsie" correctly is an indication that you've got a lot on the ball, and have come to the right place! ;-0
