The Story: Last weekend my husband and I traveled up to West Point, New York where he worked and I played. 🙂  As soon as he told me our trip dates, I could picture the Hudson River School landscapes in my mind and was excited to capture my own views of the river and mountains. After dropping him off every morning, I meandered through West Point to this waterside area to watch the sun rise.  On the first morning, I was literally gasping as I got my gear out of the car, looked over my shoulder to see if anyone objected to my super obtrusive lens, and fumbled with my settings to catch the fog resting on the horizon. I love the muted tones, and although I should’ve set up my tripod for a long exposure, I’m okay with the rippling water since the sky lacks detail.  And the mood perfectly conveys the reality of being the only one at the water’s edge.  If you have the chance to visit West Point and the Hudson River Valley, do it!  I walked the campus every morning taking in the phenomenal river views – just me, my camera, and a few cadets on their morning run!
