31 photos 31 day: December 17

I rave about the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, New York. It’s one of my favorite places in the Hudson Valley. It was almost two years since my last visit and I didn’t have a lot of time to wonder around. This time, I made sure I would spend some time in the garden photographing. This photo was one that sparked my attention, the light and shadows were placed and a sense of late spring early summer chirped around.

I still have photos to process from this early June day. But this one I love, it takes me back to when I first visited the Vanderbilt Mansion back in 2013.
