Today is Sunday, May 28, 2017. It is Memorial Day Weekend - and it's rainy and cloudy here in the Catskills. My wife and I took a road trip to visit our good friends, Kristina Jansen and Nick Kopp. Nick and Kristina own the Gateway Lodge, a wonderful little B&B at the foot of Bellayre Mountain off Route 28, about 35 miles west of Kingston, NY. We've been coming here to the gateway for about 3-4 years now. We've seen it in every season. But unfortunately, this weekend, the weather decided that it's been too dry in these parts lately - and as a result, we had clouds and rain. A little too dreary to go hiking.
We decided to take a drive to the top of Bellayre to look at the clouds in the valley. What a sight we had. There were dark storm clouds dancing around the hills and dales. And in between rain drops, I got out my Nikon and started to take some time lapse sequences. I was able to capture about 20-25 sec of time lapse in two locations - one at the top of Bellayre as previously mentioned, and the other by the banks of the Esopus Creek, the main waterway that drains the mountains.
I'll be posting these sequences in the TIME LAPSE area later today. Let me know what you think.
