First Signs of Spring – The Rockefeller Preserve – Sleepy Hollow NY

Although the spring has been late - I was determined to get some pictures that show spring is here....The peonies from the Peonies monument in honor of the victims of 9/11/2001 are starting to bud.

Fotos on the fly – The Westchester River Walk by Hudson Harbor – Tarrytown NY

The River Walk is an ambitious plan to create a linear park and walking trail along the Hudson River that extends from the northern tip of the county in Peekskill to Yonkers at the border of the Bronx. This portion has just been constructed. I was there a couple of years ago before the plan had come to life.

Sleepy Hollow Eagle

Eagle Eye in Sleepy Hollow NY – Fotos on the Fly….

Something was there...but It wasn't a person - it was a very handsome eagle silently perched - watching from his aerial vantage point. I could feel his eyes. He was watching, waiting, biding his time. He seemed aware of me, but not the least alarmed. I was hoping he would stay still for a photo-op.

ducklings & your growing family...

Duck shooting at Harbor Island Park – Mamaroneck NY

I admit that I enjoy shooting ducks. This afternoon I took a bit of time to take some photos at Harbor Island Park - Mamaroneck NY - and some ducks just happened to get in the way...so it really wasn't my fault at all.

The Crafts Fair at Lyndhurst – Tarrytown NY

The crafts fair at Lyndhurst - Tarrytown NY - is a classic Westchester event that occurs twice a year - in the spring and again just after Labor Day. It's always high on my list of things to do-see in Westchester NY.

The Rockefeller Preserve - Sleepy Hollow NY

Walking on the wild side at the Rockefeller Preserve – Fall Foliage in Sleepy Hollow

Autumn in lower Westchester NY is a very colorful event. There is something about the color of the leaves and how it lights up the sky that I find very compelling. Forget leaf peeping in Vermont - our season peaks later, but the foliage is just as amazing.
