Lately I’ve been taking a lot of photos along the Hudson River. The sheer concentration on the Hudson River was due in part to a client who had some very specific requests with the Hudson River as the subject. The process of such a focussed effort drew my attention to the fact that no two photos of the Hudson River are ever really alike. They can be in the same location at the same time of day and still be quite different. The distinctive cloud formations, the sunsets that range from the brightest yellows and purples to the palest pinks create that unique “Hudson Valley sky” seems to produce endless variations. Trying to recapture a moment is futile in such a situation…once you have missed the moment, it is gone.
The sunset above was taken from Kingsland Point Park when I was trying to capture something completely different. The sky and weather conditions did not cooperate at all with my original plans that involved a pre-sunset shoot of the LIghthouse. But I did mange to capture a vivid sunset. At first I thought this was a “consolation prize” but this photo took on a life of its own. The colors were so vivid that they almost looked surreal, so I decided to exaggerate the vivid and emphasize the shadow of the trees.
