This book is a sampling of images i've acquired in my neighborhood. palenville and haines falls ny, the platte clove and devils kitchen, the central catskills and several from other drainage.When Thomas Cole came here in 1825 he quickly divided the land into morning, afternoon and evening places that staged his vision of light as the divine presence in nature. it's not just the heights or scale of the land's features that awe us but their orientation to the track of the sun and shadows of neighboring peaks.
i built furniture in the 70s & 80s, i built networks and visual effects in the 90s. now i wander the hills looking for good light
