Striptease

Unlike humans, trees choose to go naked as the weather gets cooler revealing colors not seen in any other season. For autumn is filled with vivid colors combined with withering life prepared to face the harsh face of winter.

This set was captured on October 25th 2009 in and around Mohonk mountain in New Paltz, NY. The castle known as Mohonk house has been converted to a seven story hotel with SPAs and restaurants to accommodate visitors. You’d see the hiking paths starting at the parking lot, passing by the Victorian gardens all the way to the lake and Skytop. From the tower, you could see Shawangunk Mountain Ridge in the best color combination ever.
