Getting Ready for Winter in the Hudson Valley

Industry Observer

Winter Awaits

 Some photos speak volumes with little said. This is one of them. 

A Single Tree

Nothing to do but wait until spring. The leaves are gone and the sky was ominous this gray afternoon. Winter is not my friend. We are growing closer to the end of autumn and all my favorite trees are empty. In all four seasons there is beauty. When the temps fall and the winds howl taking photos becomes more of a challenge. This was an quiet afternoon and not too cold, but a prelude to the winter days that lie ahead.

This beautifully shaped tree is a favorite of mine in the Hudson Valley

What a truly lovely photo, Janis. I adore winter scenes in photos and art... but I don't like living in wintry climates.

I agree. This photo is still fall, and it was actually about 65 degrees outside. I am not fond of winter and will be happy to retire and move south somewhere!

It is that time of year when the ominous clouds start rolling in.  Great catch.

I much prefer spring summer and fall when the days get short and the snow falls

Hi Janis -- that's suitable for framing in my opinion.  Very nice.

Janis, I am sorry to hear that it is that time of year for you. So I will not mention to you that we had the hottest Thanksgiving yesterday, since they have recorded it.... and today we are enjoying the cool breeze:)Endre

I am soon to be a nomad and follow the warm weather where and when ever I can Endre Barath, Jr. Cold and blustery is just not logical. =)
