Croton Landing

While my wife was occupied with an appointment in Croton-on-Hudson I decided to go down to the river and take the dog for a walk at Croton Landing.

I like the way the gap in the breakwater mirrors the the gap between Croton Point (on the left) and Hook Mountain (I think – on the right).

Sunbeams, Croton Landing

I’d been walking the dog at Croton Landing and as I was passing this small inlet (beyond the breakwater is the Hudson River with the Hudson Highlands in the background) I noticed these shafts of light coming down through the clouds.

Taken in May, 2012 around 6:00 p.m. with a Panasonic Lumix ZS7 (at that time my carry everywhere camera).

Fall comes to the lake

At was about 5:30 p.m. and we’d just returned from some shopping. I glanced out through the window and saw some incredible light. Moreover, the lake was as smooth as glass, showing the reflection of the fall colors of the trees. I grabbed a camera and rushed outside. Fortunately I was able to get a couple of shots before the light changed, which it did – and rather quickly too. A couple of seconds later and it had gone.
