Thanks guys!! I took the pics with my dslr Nikon. I just stuck it up over the windshield when I saw what looked like a nice pic. Not the smartest thing in the world, but it worked out ok

The weather is going to be great for this late in the year in my area. So i'm planning on cruising around the finger lakes wine country this weekend. I hope to get some pics with a little more color.

Thanks Tommy 583

I grew up in the Adirondacks, and your pictures of the Catskills made me homesick. Guess I'll be taking a trip back home soon.

Nice photos.
Really like the second one in the second post...the distant trees are focused and sharp, but you've got a nice sense of movement in the foreground.

Thanks Tommy, great shots. We eat occasionally at the PeekAMoose resturant on 28 when we’re out and about. My wife and I are both drivers and we love living in the Catskills.

I'm up around the Syracuse area. This was the first year I took a drive around the Catskills area, but it won't be the last. I usually either go up to the Adirondacks or over to the Finger lakes. Maybe we can meet up next year for lunch and a drive.

Great idea, give me a PM when spring arrives and we can get together.

Looks like a great drive. Only 7 hours away.
That’s a weekend away kind of trip.
Heck, I have to drive 3 hours north of me to find worthy twisters, what’s a couple hours more?

Sounds like the beginnings of a plan. Let’s see if we can put together a weekend lunch and drive this spring or summer.
