Philipsburg Manor

The next 3 images are from Muscoot Farms located in Somers. It was a "Gentleman's Farm" owned by the Hopkins family, used as a dairy farm between 1880-1924 & a summer estate. In 1924 the family moved there as their year-round home & continued to operated the dairy farm till 1967. Westchester County acquired the property in the late 60's & is now an Interpretive Farm.

A glimpse of Italy & a few of the many churches along the Amalfi Coast. More images of Italy are posted on my gallery-ITALY. Non of my indoor images of the churches from Italy will ever compare to being there in person! Amazing architecture & detailed artwork through out Italy. A must see to believe. SO if you never went to Italy, I totally recommend it.

Walkable Westchester



Yesterday, GREENBURGH NATURE CENTER launched a new book "Walkable Westchester", a guide to parks & trails of Westchester County.
I learned that this was the effort of many volunteers & all proceeds go towards The New York-New Jersery Trail Conference. Two of my photos were included in this book.
So if you live in the lower Hudson Valley, & enjoy hiking, walking, nature/landscape photography, this is the book for you. It describes each park, its history, uses, ecology, location of parks & maps of trails.
