It was a cloudy day in early May when we decided to drive out of the city to Storm King, a sculptural arts center in the Hudson Valley. It has become an annual pilgrimage of sorts, a place that we can just let the kids run and run in open fields. Last year's visit was on a hot day where the sun drained us far too quickly, but this year the weather was much more favorable and the clouds made for a dramatic ceiling over the sculptures dotted across the 500 acre landscape.
If anyone is looking for a quick getaway from the city this summer, it's a great place to spend a few hours, breathe some fresh air, and see some spectacular art. Do it!
I always notice a theme in my shots after a photo taking session, and that is that I clearly favor shooting trees over anything else. The trees at Storm King have an art-like quality themselves, and their shapes take on natural sculptural form that I can't stop looking at.
