Adirondack Shack, 12x9"

Two weeks ago a friend and I went to Old Forge to catch the fall colors that were supposed to be at their peak there.
We weren't disappointed at all and came back with lots of reference material.

This little shack is next to View, the new arts center at Old Forge. I don't know if it was a cabin or some kind of station, but it's been abandoned for several years now. I like to imagine it as a summer cottage with the bare necessities.

This was supposed to be a quick study but it took longer than I expected because I had to make several value adjustments between the background trees and the sunlit areas of the foreground trees.

Love the road leading to this beautiful "shack" Adriana! Great Fall colors...Believe it or not, our trees still didn't change colors..hopefully soon.

I was just recently in Old Forge, and you've done a wonderful job of capturing the feeling of Autumn up there. We have friends who own a shack resembling the one in your picture whom we visit every summer. Nostalgic echoes of a bygone era.

Hilda, Thank you! This year the fall season seems to be a short-lived one, at least around here. I feel I haven't had time to enjoy it as it should be.
nothing profound, Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your comments!
