    The Hudson River A Photographers Paradise


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mommoore56 told me, 'The Hudson River is my favorite river because of all the variety it offers during the different seasons of the year. In summer you can catch the sailboats sailing up and down the river. In the fall the mountains are filled with colors reflecting in the river. In the winter the river freezes and you can watch visiting eagles float down on blocks of ice looking for fish for food. In the spring you can feel the excitement as everyone gets ready for the boating season and you can finally photograph sunrises and sunsets without the need for a hat and gloves.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    As a photographer living near the Hudson River I have the opportunity to capture the million different views the Hudson River offers. Whether it is spring, summer, winter or fall there is always some view or activity to photograph down by the river. I have the chance to photograph many replicated historical ships included the HMS Bounty which was lost when it sank during Hurricane Sandy. In the winter you can see bald eagles floating down on ice patches as they fish out of the Hudson. The view from the Hudson all the way down in NYC is spectacular. I feel so fortunate to have so many photographic opportunities because I live near my favorite river The Hudson River.
