Default Harriman State Park

My wife and I went to Harriman State Park in NY to snap some photos on January 1st. The day was perfect as far as winter weather goes -- upper 30s, no windchill, some sun, and best of all, it just snowed the previous day, New Year's Eve. The landscape was blanketed with fresh snow.

There are several lakes in the 72-square mile park. In one lake we saw a collection of families sledding on a slope. They were doing what we ourselves were doing -- enjoying the mild winter day outdoors.

#1. Sled slopes.


#2. We saw families sledding downhill.


#3. Father and son on the way back up for another go.




#4. Silver Mine Lake #1.


#5. Silver Mine Lake #2.


#6. Silver Mine Lake #3.


#7. Log cabin by Silver Mine Lake.


#8. Shrubs "fossilized" in ice.


#9. Icicles on rock ledges.


#10. That's not me -- this is just to give you a sense of scale.


Thank you for looking! C&C welcome!

i really like the framing of the trees and weeds you used to emphasize the ice covered lake and hill in #5.

Thanks, shoturtle! Yes, and thanks to photography my wife and I are just now (re-)discovering how nice Hudson Valley is now that we are "stopping to smell the flowers".

Yeah, slowing life down is always a plus especially living in a hectic place like NYC.

I have been out of sorts but today I stopped by though I still pain with muscle spasm attacks from being attacked in a surprised way back in Oct .. getting better though but as I looked at the photos I find my self thinking yea it would be great to enjoy a day in the snow but we have not yet gotten any to stay let alone fall. As I go through to the next one I found my self saying wow just imagine how many times I have and many other kids and adults alike have played in the snowy hills of winter but then I as well thought wow please just give me some virgin snow shots just virgin snow untouched by human just to sit and enjoy its quietness in chill mode... something that will suit me mood as I feel today.. alone, quiet and cold. guess I am not getting out enough now days...cabin fever?

SharpShotGal, I hope you get your snow. Not too much, though, just enough for you to take beautiful pictures.
