My adventures around Ulster County, New York, were a bit disjointed in December and early January, but I was able to get some photos I’m pretty excited about…check em out!

There’s so much for me to explore in Dutchess County, New York and Columbia County as well, just across the river from Ulster County, where I spend so much time. I”m working on it! Here are 2 shots from Dutchess County.

I’ve enjoyed exploring more during the night time recently, mostly around Kingston, New York. Check out what I’ve found.

Along Broadway in Kingston as well. Change is coming!

The Kingston area has a fascinating, industrial and business influenced history. And it’s always changing of course. Here are some shots from around the Kingston area that are influenced by its past history and modern day goings on.

A couple of days after Thanksgiving, I headed up to New York from my parents’ house in Delaware, and did what I could to take some photos along the way. For some reason I was drawn to bridges!
Delaware Memorial Bridge from the Delaware side – it crosses Delaware River to New Jersey
Bear Mountain Bridge – spans the Hudson River from Rockland to Westchester County in NY
This is Wappingers Falls in Dutchess County, New York. I had never seen this before. Cool!
Tiorando School on Craig House property in Beacon, New York. Pretty interesting.
Mid-Hudson Bridge & Walkway Over the Hudson, from Dutchess to Ulster County in NY
Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge from Poets’ Walk, in Rhinecliff, Dutchess County. This bridge crosses to Ulster County.
The week these shots were taken in Delaware was a mix of sun and bleakness, often within the same day. Here’s a few pics.
Making sense out of the randomness at Pickering Beach
A bit of color at Pickering Beach
The airplane going through the colorful sky was neat
Pretty post-sunset sky at Fischers’ Farm
Beautiful Thanksgiving morning…cold though!
I headed to my parents’ house in Delaware for Thanksgiving week, and took the “back roads” until I got south of Philadelphia, then headed back onto the highways. Here are a few random shots from what I found.
Airplane on a small airfield in Sussex, New Jersey
On aptly named Covered Bridge Road in New Hope, Pennsylvania
Divine Lorraine Hotel, in Northern Philadelphia
I decided one afternoon, while staying with friends in Tillson, New York, to somewhat randomly, using the web, find a small named neighborhood to drive to, with the caveat being that I didn’t already have good photos of it, and that it be in Ulster County. It ended up being Turnwood in the town of Hardbenburgh, which I’d barely heard of, even though I realized I ended up there driving once before, but hadn’t shot good photos last time. It involved leaving the county and coming back in..and almost 70 miles of driving to get there. I had a good time, and here are the best photos.
Cool Willys Jeep on Cross Mountain Road in Margaretville, New York
Successfully found Turnwood! The most interesting thing I wanted to photograph was the Alder Creek
Cross Mountain Road again, on the way back, in Andes, New York
Stopped by abandoned High Mount ski center on the way back
