Living in New Paltz is like living in the middle of forever changing art. The views are familiar but always different. The Shawngunk Mountains are not the largest mountains around but they are unique and breathtaking to see. I keep my camera with me always and sometimes I catch a nice shot. Here is one I took about a week or two ago as a rain storm was moving out. The steam was rising off the earth and the sun came shining through. Awesome!
