102016: A Beautiful Autumn

Aside from the continuing low water conditions, this Autumn has been beautiful in the Hudson Valley. Cindy and I spent several hours strolling around the grounds of Art Omi, a beautiful sculpture park and arts center located across the river in Ghent, NY. The rolling hills and the lagoon (pictured above) are the perfect settings for a wonderful array of fine sculptures.

These are two pieces by the sculptor Folkert de Jong.

The next day had us visiting our friends, Manny and Marie, and a walk to the long defunct quarry on their property. Low water, once again – the lowest they could remember.

I came back later to explore the quarry and its surroundings. The forest, for me at least, seems to provide endless visual  opportunities. You don’t know what they might be. But you can always find them!

These are a few from that walk.

Back at the studio, downed leaves cover the many surrounding piles of fossil rocks. A few peeked through.
