Footage form various locations around the Northeast, New York, and New Jersey. Late summer sunlight stitches all these clips together. Summer fading is one of the most visually stunning times of the year in Upstate New York. The color at sunset always seems just a little deeper. The conditions produced by cool mornings and warm afternoons are so beautiful because they are a limited edition, soon to be replaced my the equally beautiful but monotone color palette of winter.
Amber Waves: As a content creator and working photographer, I spend a lot of time in the car searching for locations to shoot footage. Over the course of my career, I have accumulated hundreds of out-of-the-way places to shoot stills and video. I have to admit, the process is fun. Exploring, even on a small scale, is fascinating. Each excursion out into the regions of the map that were once only names heard on weather reports is addicting. A dirt road, good music and a camera slung over the headrest of the passenger seat are all very satisfying after a gray winter.
This was the scene last night of fisherman on the Hudson River from the Green Island Bridge in Troy, New York. I grew up in this city. I can see my first apartment in this video. Troy will always be home no matter where I live or travel. We probably all feel the sensation of viewing our collected personal histories in an image of our hometowns. In part, this one is mine. The sunsets the past few days have been spectacular because of unseen smoke in the air from a distant wildfire. I wait all winter for sunsets like this one.
