Pictures of the Day

Took lots of pictures last Saturday, despite some abysmal lighting conditions.  I’m sure all the pics will look great in black and white, but the color ones look washed out.  The sky was a grey and white mess.  No blue to speak of.  But I enjoyed the wind and the 76 degree temperature during a hike up Ramapo Mountain, just past Van Slyke Castle.  From one old tower, you could look across the way and see its pair, now done up as a cell phone tower site.  Behind it is the New York City skyline.

New Cell Tower

This is where I was standing when I took that shot, more or less:

Click on the pics to see them at larger sizes. (I say this praying that WordPress actually drops the pics in and doesn’t just show a link.  I guess we’ll all find out the hard way.)
