This is the second of a 3 part post about my trip leading a group of photographers to Harriman State Park in New York
Bear Mountain Bear Mountain Lodge is a historic inn built in 1910 along the Hudson River. The group of photographers I was leading trip seemed to like it here and spent a lot of time walking around the grounds. I didn’t feel my usual inspiration because I tend to shy away from non-wilderness landscapes. As I wandered around, I saw the lodge’s grounds as a very inclusive place. Families with small kids, elderly folks, foreign tourists and others who probably are not inclined to venture up a steep hiking trail were all enjoying the natural beauty of the area on a perfect fall day. I decided to take my lens cap off and enjoy the fun too.
