Lighthouse on the Hudson River NY

As a family we like to get out and take photographs.  This beautiful shot of the Esopus Meadow Lighthouse on a fozen Hudson River was taken by my husband; however I told him he lost the rights to it since he used my camera and there is no arguing with me since I have the disc....Lol

This is just a way of thanking him for being my picture taking partner.

Jennifer, great view!!!!

It is hard to tell in the picture, but is the water frozen enough to walk out to the Lighthouse???

I heard that possession was 9/10ths of the law!

That is yet another awesome picture.  You really should put some of these into a collection for display.  You've got such a talent for this.

Cool picture!  I live on the Fox River in Cary...when it freezes all the snowmobiles are out there!  It just melted last week but now the Fox River is freezing again.

I take it that is a little further north of the Hudson River area that became so internationally famous last month.
