Hudson River

Went for a boat ride on the Hudson River. The Hudson River is a 315-mile (507 km) river that flows from north to south through eastern New York. It rises at Lake Tear of the Clouds, on the slopes of Mount Marcy in the Adirondack Mountains, flows past Albany, and finally forms the border between New York City and New Jersey at its mouth before emptying into Upper New York Bay.

  1. OH. MY. GOD, Val….this photo is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

    Literally took my breath away! That sky is remarkable!

    10 stars and an Oscar for BEST picture!

    Thanks for sharing, girl!

      hey ron. thanks, glad you like. being on a boat with 20 demons (school trip) did not put me in a creative mood, but on the way back to the dock, i was able to position myself away from the little demons and get this shot. i feel like going titanic when i look at it, but i would hate to slip and fall and destroy my camera gear. i didn’t bring the weather/waterproof set up.

  2. Bravo! Very nice picture! Love the composition! I love the warmth of the railing along the boat (don’t slap me if that’s not the right boat term) against the dark waters and skies!

      g’day mate, frances. i like the composition too, i don’t normally shoot to the left, but tried something different and because i could not get to other side and had no choice. maybe i will try shooting to the left and out of the frame more often, it’s called breaking the rules and i like it.

      i don’t know any boat terms either, so we’re in the same boat. hahahhah, too early for jokes? never!

  3. Truly excellent colorization. I’ve never uttered this word before (or typed it for that matter) but I think that’s breathtaking. (And I mean that in a good way, not the way it was used on “Seinfeld.”)

      (greets you with a slight bow and a head nod) good morning cg. merci. the sky did open up for us a bit several times and a lot after we left. the light was so beautiful i could have sailed the waters for a few more hours, but without those demon kids. seriously.

  4. Amazing photo, Val. You have captured much more than an image. You got the mood and dare I say the temperature. I can feel a cold wind on my face when I look at it. Incredible. Very few photos do that for me. This should be in a gallery.

      top of the morning.

      really, kathy? temperature and mood? that’s awesome because it was cold, but i had on layers out of fear. not the best day to be on a boat. the rain did stop after several minutes though, it never did warm up until we got home.

      okay, deal. when this picture gets hung in a gallery, planning on next year, i’ll rename it Cold Winds or Cold Winds on My Face. Cold Winds on the Hudson. Cool Winds on the Hudson. Which one? The name I picked sucked, but I couldn’t think of anything else.

Speak on it!
