Hudson River Moods

I've spent a lot of time this past year photographing patterns - specifically chaotic patterns of branches/leaves, weeds/bushes, and the surfaces of the Hudson River.
These were taken during sunsets, with a zoom lens -- a 200 mm.  The scene -- the water -- moves constantly of course so you just keep shooting.  It looks best if you can get some black in the water -- so shooting near docks brought that grounding contrast element into the images -- and gold from the sunset for the drama.  I'm fascinated with the patterns, the shapes of the surfaces of the Hudson River.

Some of these images were taken during a Hudson Valley Tour that I led for a serious amateur photographer who was coming to the area and wanted to make sure she went home with some great shots.
